Just so you know...90% of The Show players swear it's the best baseball game ever...
That being said, Ive owned both this year, both last year, and The Show since MVP sadly went away. This years Show is very very good at what it does, which is completely sim baseball. If you are a diehard purist and have the time to devote 2 hrs to a game (like real baseball) then you'll live it. I personally am more interested in a MVPesque sim/play style of game, and feel 2k10 delivers that quite well.
Basically I'd say this
graphics- The Show no question gameplay- depends on what you want, I prefer 2k online- both suck and are laggy, but Show is far more played online franchise- I actually prefer 2k just for the menu system and easier trade/move up and down My player/Road to the Show- I don't really get into this part, but I know my bro in law prefers The Show.
It's really about what you want. I'll sacrifice graphics for a more enjoyable 75% sim 25%arcade gameplay, with a great 'chise mode. I don't play online too much and don't touch the My Player. My vote is 2k10. Plus the $20 less doesn't hurt either if you care
