My outfield last year was Ellsbury ($30), Markakis ($20) and Carlos Lee ($15). That was money well spent.....Not.

I don't know who said it originally about Mike Ivie but the same observation could be applied to Manny - "He's like a billion dollar airport with a ten dollar control tower". I hope you have better luck with him than I did.
