Not "hands down," but I'd give the nod to Ramirez. Berkman is starting to get overlooked, in my opinion. This is a guy that lead the NL in RBIs last year, and hit over 40 HRs. Currently, he's batting behind two studs, Bagwell and Jeff Kent, so I don't see why if he gets hot, he can't produce last year's stats. He's starting to come around now as it is.

I'll take Berkman. Looks like he is over his injuries and is starting to crush the ball again. The stats will start rolling in for Berkman.

Add in Manny's missed games and I think Berkman easily distances him.

You think batting 4th or 5th in Houston's lineup is better for his numbers? I can't figure it out.

Manny all the way. You never see him go into a prolonged slump. A slump for Manny is a homer and 5 RBI in a week. He's the guy that can guarantee you reproduction of his numbers year in and year out.

i'm pretty sure that you want to go with manny here. he's one of the top 5 hitters in the game, period sure, his home run #s are a little low thus far... but i think if he doesn't get injured, 35/120 is a certainty.. 45/140 is certainly possible as well. and he'll likely hit .330.

berkman is no slouch, but i'm partial to ramirez. he was a steal in the 2nd round in all three of my leagues so i'm riding him for as much as i can.

my dynamic outfield duos: vlad/manny in two leagues, bonds/manny in the other. now, the other player on all 3 fantasy squads is luis castillo, and i certainly hope that he isn't outperformed by jerry hairston jr all season long =/
