I have to go with Manny here, but only because of the average.

Of the 2 hitters I prefer Thome, but Manny will likely outproduce Jim, though maybe in batting average only.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

they're 1/2 game up in the wild card, how are they not in the playoff hunt....being ahead in the wild card considering how badly they've played shows they can get ahead a lot more

another vote for Manny.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

As of today, 7/23, the Red Sox lead the Wid Card race, a 1/2 game over the A's...

By the way, I would choose Manny over Thome...
