Maggs by a little.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I think I'd go with Manny over Maggs despite Manny being about 2 years older. I average the projections from several sources and here's how they look:

Manny 32yo/ 561AB/ .331Avg/ 1.051OPS/ 40HR/ 119RBI/ 113R/ 1SB
Maggs 30yo/ 598AB/ .321Avg/ .944OPS/ 32HR/ 111RBI/ 102R/ 11SB
Sheff 35yo/ 542AB/ .310Avg/ .976OPS/ 36HR/ 116RBI/ 107R/ 13SB

Not everyone realizes that Sheff and the "always dinged" Larry Walker have been very similar as for games missed since both became fulltimers in 1990. Sheff may have even missed a few more than Walker. At 35, I wouldn't even consider keeping him vs Manny or Maggs.

I would probably barely choose Manny. If you still can't decide between the two, and since these two are so close, I'd just say flip a coin and see where your luck takes you.

I'd take Manny, but not by much over Maggs since its a keeper.
