Whats up with Manny?

And Francoeur for that matter. Should I be benching them?
Gracias!

Manny will be fine. Wouldn't even think about benching him. Frank is a bench player on my team and I wouldn't even think about starting him right now. He looks lost.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Manny a slow starter?

He is 1-10 right now. I was shocked. AS fro Francoeur, I put Geoof Jenkins in his place and should be happy with that.

I don't know why people expected frenchy to be a star player this year. He's got talent but he has absolutely no plate discipline. He may eventually become a star but at this point I'd let him go through his growing pains on the bench (or better yet on another owner's roster).

Manny started 2005 slow, too. No big deal. He did have a blazing start to 2004, which is why some are thinking he should be hot this early.

Not worried at all about Manny. He had a sweet S.T. too, so he should be in the swing of things ... heck, as early as today.

Agreed. And on Franceour, I haven't bought into all the hype either. Way overrated IMO.
