Jackson has more potential overall, especially if you're looking for a player that gives you lead off hitter production in the runs/hits/steals department. Francisco has greater power potential though, in my opinion. I'm not sure why people are saying Francisco will lose AB's when Utley comes back though, considering they play two very different positions. They might be mistaking Francisco for Valdez? Idk... There is potential for him to lose some AB's if/when Dominic Brown gets healthy and starts playing to his potential.

Back to the main point - I'd go Austin Jackson, but it's close. Depends on your needs.

i am a die hard phils phan. watch every game and go to 15-25/yr. Utley's return will NOT effect Fransisco's at bats i think they meant either valdez or browns return. heres the thing with D Brown. He's not an everyday guy and probably wont start against a single left hander barring injury all season. the interesting thing to look at here is gonna be based on Raul Ibanez. He has been struggling mightily, and i know hes a second half player, but he's at the age where skill can degrade quickly. this is my assessment: D Brown will platoon in RF when he does make it back, taking some AB away from fransisco, but i believe fransisco will ALSO be platooning in LF with Ibanez, who i believe will lose the majority of the AB's from D Brown's return. also, i think fransisco is going through some growing pains as i thought he would early on in this season. as the season extends, his approach at the plate will improve dramatically. He's a fastball hitter swinging at junk right now (and still being somewhat productive in the process) who caught a case of Carl Crawford's "tryin too damn hard" bug. he's batting 5th or 6th in a potent lineup in a short stadium, 20+HR, 80+ RBI, 60+ R, and a handful of SB are very attainable for Fransisco. and who knows, without utley and jroll struggling, a hot streak for Ben could land him in front of Ryan Howard and give him a whole boat load of fastballs to look at. Hang on to Fransisco and keep an eye on Ibanez's (lack of) production.
