If you were given the option right now to take Alfonso Soriano and his contract for the next 6 years or Manny Ramirez at his price for the next 6 years, which would you want? Why?

For me, it’s got to be Soriano for the simple reason that Manny is too much of a head case. I can’t deal with a player like that. I can’t stand his antics and I am not so sure he has all that much left, given his age. I know he takes great care in how hard he works preparing for at bats, but I’ll take the upside of Soriano and the hot streaks he brings and ride out his age. It’s a no-brainer for me.

On a side note, the new design of the site has been delayed due to some issues with the content management system MVN is going to be using. No word on when it will be resolved, so we’ll keep on plugging away on our end. That was the reason for the lack of posting this week.
