Bruce or Stanton? WHIR

Which of these OFs would you rather have? It’s a 6X6 league with standard cats plus OPS.

I like Bruce...he could have a Votto type season. Stanton is primed for big HR numbers but a low AVG.

Bruce could go 30HR and hit for a higher avg.

I like them both about the same, but here's how I see it:

if you like to be a little more risky, I'd go Stanton as he could put up bid power #'s, but he could also pull a Reynolds and kill your average

If you like to be a little safer, I'd go with Bruce. While not a high BA, he should give you a much higher floor for his BA vs. Stanton, while still getting you about 30HR

please help:

I will take Bruce because he's got a bit more experience and is on a better team.

It's similar risk but I think this is the year for Bruce to break out.
