Manny vs. Magglio

Peter Gammons tweeted this weekend that, in addition to Manny Ramirez, the A’s are also considering Magglio Ordonez, who has been recovering from ankle surgery in the offseason.

We all know that Manny didn’t do much in 2011, getting only 17 at bats with Tampa before his PED issues struck. But Magglio didn’t do much last season either, posting a .255/.303/.331 slash line in 329 at bats with Detroit. His power seemed to evaporate, as he hit only 5 home runs all year. In 2010 though, Magglio had a .303/.378/.474 slash line, while Manny had a .298/.409/.460 slash line.

So given all that, who would you rather see the A’s go with, Manny or Magglio – or none of the above? Personally, I could live without either of them – but if I had to choose, I think Manny has more potential upside than Magglio at this point, and certainly more potential entertainment value!
