Bonderman hits 99mph

Postby MikeD22 » Tue Jun 21, 2005 9:24 pm

I was just watching live scoring on cbssportsline.com and the pitch by pitch window showed Bonderman hitting 99mph. How accurate is the live scoring? Any Tiger fans or fantasy people know if Bonderman can throw that hard.

I doubt it. I know he generally sits between 92-95 mph so 99 mph does seem a stretch. I'd say he could maybe touch 97 at best.

I dunno, he consistently hits 97mph in MVP Baseball 2005.... ;-7

Yeah that's where he generally sits, but he can hit mid 90's with regularity if he is really on and needs to. I've seen him hit 97-98 quite a few times.

However fast he was throwing, the bottom line is that this was a scintillating effort by Bonderman. I think he threw first pitch strikes to about 24 batters.

Even one of the runs was tainted, as a ground ball by Stewart took a crazy hop and became a double, and he eventually scored.

Bondo is usually in the mid-90s but I have seen him reach 97 or 98. I really liked his performance last night. An obscene amount of first-pitch strikes, a great G/F ratio, a nice pitch selection, and he finished off batters when he was ahead in the count and/or with two outs (something he often has trouble doing).

The dude's barely out of high school and is quietly putting together an elite season on a mediocre AL team that lacks top-tier defense. Ya gotta love that upside. On a team like St. Louis, this guy would be a total fantasy stud.

I agree, I think Bonderman is on his way to "Ace" status soon.

He's my "ace" right now. Thanks to Hudson. :-[

Regardless, Bonderman hasn't disappointed me one bit.

He's actually been better than I expected when I drafted him. I expected 14 wins, an ERA a little under 4, a WHIP a bit under 1.3, and 165 K or so. Anything is possible from here on out, but he's on track to post better numbers that these, and possibly much better. ;-D

Now, about my expectations for RJ, Beltre, and Pavano . . . :,-(

I am sure he is not a day over 40.
