Torres for Manny?? WHIR!!!!!!

Postby cfrat24 » Fri Apr 01, 2011 12:08 pm

12 team 5x5 Roto league

I have some speed guys in Pierre/torres/bourbon Brian Roberts as well as Pennington.

Is Manny for Torres a good deal? Should I be patient and see what Manny has to offer at his age? or is just that good of a hitter and money hungry that he will have a solid year???

I'd make that deal. Everything seems to be set up for Manny to bounce back this season - batting cleanup, full time DH, and lowered expectations.

Absolutely. Weird to say for a guy his age, but I like his "upside" relative to Torres'. Also, Torres is 33, so hardly a spring chicken himself.

help me out real quick?
