Amidst new controversy, is it time to put this guy on our respective benches and "wait-and-see"? For some reason, I have trouble justifying putting Barry on the bench (I feel like as soon as I do, he's going to break out of it). But I have Shannon Stewart wasting away with his nice lines while Barry continues to struggle. So what do we do, fellow Barry owners???

i think this is irrelevant. it doesnt matter if there is proof or substantial evidence, the fact is, he is playing quite poorly. Does this have something to do with him using steriods or not using them now? Possibly but no body can know that. Does it have to do with the media pressure and an aging body and knee? Almost undoubtedly.
I might bench bonds til he does hit that first dinger but he has been hitting long fly balls so who knows, he might hit one tomorrow.
No, we're only a little bit more than a week into the season. If he doesn't get back to being himself by the end of April, that's when I'd probably send him to the bench. The fact is, Barry is a huge HR threat whenever he steps up to the plate, it's tough to replace that on a fantasy team. As for his recent struggles, he seemed to be hitting much better today with a couple of deep fly balls, and an RBI single. I think he'll be fine.
If I owned him, it would only be in a daily transactions league, and at that point, if he's in the starting lineup for the day, he would be active on my team.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
