    fielder for ortiz?

    yes, although there are several factors which may swing the balance towards one player

    1. keeper league? (if so, then fielder is more valuable)
    2. Standard 5x5 or extra categories (if you use OPS instead of AVG then Fielder becomes a little more valuable since he is a top-10 OPS guy, but not a top-10 BA guy, while Oritz AVG is consistently at/over .300)

    They were 8/9 in Yahoo Rankings from last year but that was with Ortiz only hitting 35 HR due to his bad knee. Now that he had surgery I expect a little increase (not back to 54, but to 40-45) which would put him ahead of Fielder.
