Saturday marked Manny's 50th game since his return from suspension. How did those 50 games stack up against JP's 50 games during the suspension?:
150-game period during Manny's suspension (5/7 - 7/1)
250-game period following suspension (7/3 - 8/29)
It's debatable whose numbers are better, but is Juan Pierre suddenly looking like a relative bargain? Interestingly, both Manny and Juan seem to suffer from the same 20-game letdown phenomenon. We showed you JP's 20/30 game splits. Let's take a look at Manny's.
Manny Ramirez's first 50 post-suspension games:
Hopefully he'll soon revert to his pre-suspension production levels. Stay tuned...
