Who Would You Rather Have: Yunel Escobar or Miguel Tejada??

Here's a quick post to see who you would draft first: the Brave's Yunel Escobar or the Astros Miguel Tejada?

Here are their stats for 2009 courtesy of www.fangraphs.com:

Name AB H 2B HR R RBI BB SO AVG OBP SLG OPS
Miguel Tejada 635 199 46 14 83 86 19 48 0.313 0.340 0.455 0.795
Yunel Escobar 528 158 26 14 89 76 57 62 0.299 0.377 0.436 0.812

They are pretty close in every category including SBs which are not shown since they each had only 5 SBs in 2009. Escobar gets on base more and  is obviously the younger of the two, but the experts have been projecting Tejada's fall off for several years, but he is still a productive hitter.
