If you keep changing your starting lineup on a daily basis then you'll get frustrated some nights and overjoyed other nights. However, i fyou leave your stud hitters in such as Manny and just leave them there, at the end of the season you'll have gotten good use out of the 100 runs, 40 homers, and 130 rbi that he collected through the ups and downs.

I was gonna start a thread about this entitled "Oh Manny, you came and you saw and you're hitting" to the Barry Manilow song "Mandy"

Enough about that. Man, I drafted him in the 3rd round and had not been too happy thus far. His power looks to be picking up though.

How bout that gem Kim threw? Damn that looks nice on my team pages..

I've had him in all year and am THRILLED to see a game like this...

he's been picking things up in parallel with Giambi and I think both of them are going to be smoking up to the all star break

i've rode manny all season long in fear of missing a game like this. still, the early start yesterday caused me to miss starting him by roughly 10 minutes. i've missed some gems this season:

sexson's 3 HR game
edgar martinez' 2 HR game
manny's 5/8 3R 1HR 4RBI games
and a javvy vazquez 8IP/2ER game, right after his 5 ER shellings.

last year i remember that whenever i benched palmeiro he'd hit a HR or two. usually i dont mind having quality that overtakes my roster positions, but when you're in a tight race and 3-5HR is the difference between 3-5 points, well, then it's as annoying as sheeeit.
