Manny hands down. Over the last couple years Manny has proved to be a better 2nd half player whereas Carlos Lee has been a better 1st half player. thats one reason, another reason is that Manny will have more overall run production and will hit for a better average IMO.

I think in the end it's going to be pretty close. If Berkman can heat up, Lee should get even more RBI opps. Manny is really swinging the bat well right now, the big tear should come soon. Can't really go wrong with EITHER guy at this point. Both are looking like really solid 2nd rounders. Unlike Berkman :~(

I'll take many with ease still, but El Caballo is making it closer than I initally thought. Manny always dominates in the second half of the season and is picking it up in a big way right now. I see that continuing and Manny ending up with slightly better numbers that Lee at seasons end.

As a Lee voter so far its looking good. Season is still early though and Lee has been more of a 1st half player lately.

......Anyway, now I just jinxed Lee and Ramirez is going to go on his typical tear! !+)


Its fun to look back at what was said in the preseason....alot of good stuff out there.


I find it mildly interesting to note that for every fan that jinxes a player, there are hundreds of other fans in other places of the globe jinxing the same player the same way or the opposite...
