According to who? Did you see the numbers Manny put up last year?
Manny's totals were lovely last year, though it was the first time in years that he's posted an OPS under 1.000. I had Manny last year and got the feeling that he wasn't producing at the same level as Manny in previous recent years, some of which I've also owned him in.
Still, I'd take Manny over Ortiz because the OF, although the position is well-populated, is fairly weak for its size. Even more so in my league, where the OF is split up by position in LF, CF, and RF.
