I agree. In weekly leagues Bonds has absolutely no value. His stats will never be much better than a middle of the road outfielder if he's sitting every second to third game. In daily leagues he's still servicable if you can keep up with when he's sitting or not, but in weekly he just is worthless.

I was wondering if anybody thinks if Bonds still has value in a weekly league. I have a few offers I am pondering, and don't want to get burned. I'm not asking if I should trade or who for....just if you agree or don't agree with me that Bonds weekly league value is pretty much nil (except for walks).

I think you can pretty much expect what he has done thus far for the rest of the season with more homers. He is gonna get plenty of days off. I wouldn't touch him in weekly leagues.

2 things, 1 this is a day game after a night game, which means he usually sits, its not normal rest, its just a thing he does often. Also, when he gets his stroke back and hits 30 homers he's gonna play more and you guys are gonna be thinkin, why didn;t I buy low on this guy

Correct. He's hardly played on Sundays over the past couple seasons. It's part of the cost of SF OF.

I'll take that bet sj2k. No way Bonds hits 30.

I believe it was said going into the season he would sit often...

In the 2 games in this series he hasn't finished a game either.
