I've been wondering who everyone thinks is better: Dmitri Young or Carlos Pena? I own them both but am constantly deciding who to punch in my util spot. I'd like to trade one of them, so who do you guys think puts up the better numbers this season?
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

Gotta go with DaMeatHook.
Pena has potential to put up very good numbers, but has never put it together over a full season. He has fallen in love with walks, so if your league scores them he is a great choice. But I worry that his facination with the walk is at the expense of aggressiveness. Could hurt his power numbers.
Young is starting off red hot and is set to have a career season. Much safer move taking Young. He's hitting 4th until Maggs return and then 5th. Great spot to drive in >100.
