I'll have to go with Coco Crisp on this one .... Jones will be stealing less frequently than before since he doesn't bat atop the order anymore, which should also lead to a decreased improvement in his run total. Crisp will finish with at least 15 more steals while scoring more runs, hitting more RBI's, and batting at a slightly higher average than Jones. The only category that Jones has the upper hand on Coco is HR's, and the difference this year should be only less than 5.

I'd go with Jones...I think he's usually undervalued on draft day

Why not both? I bet you could drop one of your other players for Jacque (cough cough KGJ cough cough) Though if it was a matter of one or the other I'd rather have Coco.

I like Coco, he should hit for higher AVG than Jones and steal more bases.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Go with the cereal man.

Jones is decent but Crisp has the potential to put up some solid #'s

Stay with Coco. His numbers are getting bvetter each year, he's younger, and Jones' numbers are not.
