I like Marcum also but with his recent arm/elbow troubles in 12'.....I have zero confidence that the 'new' twins medical staff can rule him healthy enough to warrant a big contract.
Really, either one & Id be happy but if its up to me between the 2, Id definately go with Jackson---IF he's not limited by Rick Anderson's pitch count
