Berry could easily hit 20 bombs still. Manny... well he can be Manny? The guy is going to do nothing in that ballpark.

Barry Bonds is 47 and post-steroids, there's no way he's better than Manny. Then again you could be joking, I can't tell.


Manny is 40 and post steroids and was never as good as Barry. Barry OPS'd 1.045 as a 43 year old, wouldn't surprise me if he could still OPS in the .800 range and that could easily end up being better than Manny. Obviously it's all conjecture, I'm just saying I don't think it's all that crazy.

go watch Moneyball again.. JK!

I'm going to call it right now.. Manny will be a player of the month! But that's the only month he'll do anything. I"m calling...April. Trade him in May.

He's suspended to start the season so I'm guessing this is not correct!

Exactly why I would take Bonds because he WALKS. Manny stirkes out too much.

And yes, Billy Beane is on a fire sale this off season. They are still going to end up 3rd in the division lol

His contract is so low that this makes sense to me from a marketing perspective. It's a good way to get some people talking about your team when you have no chance of making the playoffs for the next few years.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Have Brad Pitt trade him to the Jays if you don't want him. He deserves better than Oakland.

I suspect Barry still has a better batting eye than most in the majors. Greatest of all time.

Well they're both 4th place teams, so it can't be results you're referring to ;-)
We'll have a new stadium shortly, so it can't be that either.
What could you possibly mean? ;-7
