Quentin, then Bay, then Markakis for me

Bay should lead Markakis in HR's, R's and RBI's which will offset Markakis' advantage in average

Make that one more in the Quentin, then Bay, then Markakis order. For some reason, Orioles hitters do not tend to get the same respect that hitters do in the boston & chicago line-ups. If Markakis moved to a line-up with a better supporting cast, then he would have a better chance at getting the nod here.

Anyone want to explain the appeal of a Carl Crawford?

I call it the "Prior" complex. :-b

In my heart I feel like he has 20/50 upside, perhaps even 25/50 upside, and I keep drafting the fools gold year after year... :-{

I think you've been hitting the Phelps pipe.

Kemp is a legitimate 25/30 candidate, unlike Markakis who is probably more of a 25/10 guy. Kemp has already shown the 30 SB speed when he swiped 35 bags a year ago and belted 18 HR and went stride for stride with Markakis in every other fantasy category. I'm actually disappointed that I went Markakis over him.

Kemp has the better overall upside compared to Markakis, but his K rate and his lack of success against righties makes Kemp more of a question mark. Markakis is the better hitter, but I don't think he hits 30 this year. Kemp probably won't hit 30 HR either, but the chances that he pitches in 30+ SB and could possibly hit for just 10-20 BA points lower than Markakis, makes Kemp the more interesting proposition.

I'm going to keep the poll going for a while, with how close it is currently.
