Who Would You Rather Have: Derek Jeter or Troy Tulowitzki?

A couple friends and I are having a discussion over who is the better shortstop-Derek Jeter or Troy Tulowitzki. If you factor in defense, Tulo is the better SS. But for roto/fantasy purposes, who is better?

Here's a look at their 2009 stats:

Name AB H HR R RBI BB SO SB AVG OBP SLG OPS
Derek Jeter 634 212 18 107 66 72 90 30 0.334 0.406 0.465 0.871
Troy Tulowitzki 543 161 32 101 92 73 112 20 0.297 0.377 0.552 0.929

Tulo has more power and drives in more runs, while Jeter hits for a better AVG. and steals more bases. I have to say I was shocked to see Jeter stole 30 bases. I am not an AL roto player, so I don't track American League players.

Jeter had a BABIP of .369 VS .323 for Tulo, while Tulo had a slightly higher WOBA-.393 to .390. Tulo walks more and strikes out more than Jeter.

So who would you rather have in 2010?
