Cameron, by a mile. He's Hafner plus SB's, and he's proven to boot. What's not to like? Plus, he's guaranteed playing time due to his gold glove defense. He's got a hit in every game so far, and has 2 HR and 4 SB. The Mets lineup is looking pretty good, so he should continue to score a lot of runs and get a lot of RBI. He's still striking out a lot, but as long as he keeps his BA up and is a 5 cat player, he's better than Hafner in my book.

I agree overall...but a lot depends on what you need. LBJackal pointed out that Cameron is a 5 cat player, but more realistically he's more of a 4 cat player...his average isn't exactly good. If you need power, average, and RBIs, go with Hafner. If you need SBs or runs go with Cameron.

I would also recommend evaluating your outfield's risk. So if you have say, Griffey, Drew, and Burrell lined up in your outfield, you should go with Cameron, because he is proven and will definitely produce this year. But if you already have a good proven outfield, pick up Hafner and hope he breaks out and then subsequently you should be able to use him as trade bait for something you actually need.

Go with Hafner...you don't need steals (Pierre, Baldelli, and Patterson) and you don't have a backup 1B....pick up Hafner and hope the hot streak continues.
