Definitely keep Hill, not that close. Hill is still contributing in R,RBI during his slump in that powerful lineup and will beat Beckham in every counting category. He will hit at least 12 more HR's than Beckham. Blue Jays run-first philosophy is for real so Hill's SB upside is legit if he is healthy. Remember though that all of his steals came during Rajai Davis' absence so they had no real steal threats. Still, Hill will get a handful more steals and at the very least will match Beckham in the SB department, which, prior to the season, would have seemed unlikely.

Beckham is buried in the #9 spot, batting ahead of Juan Pierre and Alexei Ramirez; 2 players known for their inabilities to drive players in. Beckham may even start losing at-bats to Mark Teahen. Keep Hill.

Help with mine, please:
