Hey Guys, thanks for the warm welcome thus far. Its been great seeing the commentary. Yeah, Manny in my mind will always be more valuable than Castro. Even if he only ever hits around his 2nd half numbers--which I doubt--he will always be more valuable than Castro because of his Power and Defense. The idea behind the comparison was Castro's full year and Manny's half year of making poor contact and the similarity in their numbers.
However, as Tucker mentioned Manny has a history of making adjustments in the minors and a half season of baseball in a career that is only 207 games is a small sample size. The talent is there, so lets all hope we see some improvement when he comes back next year.
