Nah, I checked the splits for the past 3-4 years and that it's a wash or Manny is a bit more consistent. You're probably looking mostly at last year - a year in which Manny had his struggles.
They'll very likely put up almost identical stats, Papi with maybe a couple more HR and RBI, Manny with a higher BA.
I'd take Manny based on position depth (LF or OF vs. 1B).
