This could go either way, IMHO. If I were guessing, I would probably go w/ Blalock, in terms of numbers.

I think that he's got a bit more power and could not do much worse hitting lefties than he did last year so he should improve at least that much, if not more. The only thing that Jeter has on him, in terms of fantasy results, is experience, and all of the aches and pains w/ it.

I would say Blaylock also. Just a gut feeling though.

Depends if you need some steals to go along with the average, or if your team needs power more. If steals, I'd grab Jeter and hope he's good to go. Blalock won't steal, but should have a better power season. Both will have similar batting averages, but Jeter should score more runs. IMO, they're even in total value, just depends on which stats you need more.

Blalock or Jeter

Blalock - he is young and played on a poor team. Plus he plays the hot corner. Maybe Texas is going in the right direction? ;-D

Right with you swarmee
Jeter will have more runs and SB.
Blalock will have more HR and RBI.
Avg is a pretty even.
Depends on what you need.
