Why does Bonderman get no love???

Detroit has some good young pitching (read: Verlander, Zumaya) it should be interesting to see how they handle Bonderman's young arm next year. He battled injuries and fatigue at the end of last year so maybe they'll be alittle easier on him this year.

He had pain in his elbow near the end of the year, hopefully it was just fatigue. He has good stuff but he has not been able to put it all together.

Last year when I had him, I was pleasantly suprised with his performance through most of the year. Towards the end though, I lost all confidence in him and would refuse to start him even against the best matchups. I will not draft him this year where he will more than likely go b/c what use is there in having a pitcher that you are not confident in.

Bonderman, in my opinion actually gets too much love.

Last season he was less valuable than David Wells, Gustavo Chacin, Jake Westbrook, Brad Penny, Mike Mussina, or Kris Benson.

Sure, he was only 23 and shows promise, but still...temper your enthusiasm.
