Which one of these guys do you like this year? Both were on fire before they got hurt. Thoughts?

Close, Patterson has the ability to get more steals, but he won't be running at 100% for a while after last years knee surgery, would still probably go with him though.

Kearns is the better hitter, but Patterson will get about 20 more runs than Kearns.

Patterson, he's going to go 20-30 or thereabouts in a nice offense that'll knock him in and provide some rbi opps as well.

Patterson's in a far superior offense....

If they're both healthy, I'd take Kearns. However, I believe that Patterson has a better chance of staying healthy, so I say go with him.

Depends what your team/scoring system needs, speed or power.

In a 5x5 I would edge toward Patterson, but only because my approach is to build around guys who can help you in all categories. You could easily make a good case for Kearns depending on the needs of your particular team.
