You should panic and trade him for Orlando Cabrera- he's totally on fire! :-b

Same deal with Sheffield- that guy's a complete dud! :*)

Too early. I'd drop him though if I were you.

I don't know exactly numbers, but Manny was around .240 most of last season and a lot of people dumped him. Unfortunately for them, he ended up with 45 HRs, 144 RBIs and a .292 avg. He'll be fine.

If you are in my league, then yes - you should worry and then trade him to me for Chris Shelton. Otherwise, no worries. Manny always does this... just enjoy the .300, 100, 40, 130 at the end of the year.

Remember that Manny was batting in the .220's after about 50 games last year!

I know he will be back soon but right now he is really hurting my H2H team.

i asked the same question last year and i did it after a month. i was whining that he hadn't hit that low since his rookie year... well, look how he finished. I doubt Manny will ever pull a vanishing act like Burrell or Konerko. just hang in there.
