Look at his track record. Yeah, hall of famer. I think it's safe to say he's fine.


agreed. IF he doesn't miss time he's essentially a lock for 100/30/100/.300 given his skill set.

Are you being serious? Manny has been all over the place this season. Saying he is out of a slump because he went 2/4, and 1/4 with a HR in consecutive nights doesn't mean a slump is over. It's encouraging though.

And saying his slump is over because he is hall of fame bound blew my mind.

How about this rationale for thinking he'll be ok, then?

He hasn't bat below .292 since 1994. In a full season, he's never bat below that.
He's driven in 100+ Runs in 11 of the last 13 years.
He's scored 90+ Runs in 9 of the last 12 years, and is on pace to still do it this year.
He's hit 30+ HR in 11 of the last 13 years, hitting 40+ on 5 occasions.
He hasn't played all that well and is still on pace for .281, 28 HR, 94 RBI, 91 R, 2 SB.
He bats for a higher AVG and SLG in the 2nd half than 1st half most years.

Now, the downside to all of this is that age is possibly catching up to him, but there's plenty reason to believe that Man-Ram is just fine...

Are we all reading different threads?

We must be.

I never said Manny won't be okay, or anything in the same galaxy as that.

I said his current slump cannot be considered over based on his last two games where he is 3 for 8, with two rbi's and a homerun.

Sensitive people on the board tonight I guess.

The guy said "look at this track record." Not look at his last two games.

Manny is going to be fine.

When Manny starts going opposite field (which he has done 2 nights in a row) the hits/power start coming with it. He has always been that way. Thats how he gets out of his "slumps" so I am guessing he will be alright from here. ;-D

I'm playing against him this week in my big money league so he sould have a great week this week. :-t :-P

All kidding aside, he'll be right around 30-100 for the year. And when Papi comes back that'll just help him even more.
