Will Bonderman continue his success?

Postby reenum » Thu Jul 27, 2006 9:44 am

How do you fellow Cafe-ers see him doing for the rest of the season?

I know he's been rolling along pretty well for a couple of months now. But, I've also heard that he really doesn't seem to be pitching any differently this season. There's really no explanation I've found for his great season, a la Bedard adding another pitch.

Will he continue being a great pitcher or will he revert to his inconsistent ways of season's past?

The reason I ask is that I have a trade offer where I'd get Peavy for him, and I'm trying to decide. Thanks all.

first, i would definitely take peavy for him anyway, but i think this is the year he's matured and i dont see him cooling off.

Several "experts" had him as a sleeper who would finally breakout this year. So, this isn't a total surprise at all-- meaning it's not necessarily a fluke.

Kind of like they did last year. He was even breaking out last year, for the first half of the season at least.

But anyways, as long as he stays healthy, he should continue to be good. He faded down the stretch last year after a great start, but circumstances weren't good for him last year. He got injured and there were pretty bad clubhouse issues late last year for the Tigers.

I asked this question a couple months back, and I'm now convinced he's the real deal.

he's been rocking ever since the gambler taught him the changeup. I'd still trade him for Peavy straight up. But he's for real.

I agree. I have seen him throw many times this year and his slider is just filthy. His only problem is that he gives up the homerun pretty often. He will be cruising along, then walk a guy, and then give up the HR.

bonderman has always had a ton of potential, it just hasn't been unveiled until this season. There is no way this year is a fluke, it was just a matter of time before he started pitching like this.

He appears to have gotten it together. 27.1 IP vs. KC though... :-?

He's 23... He faded last season because he battled elbow (or was it shoulder?) tendonitis for the last month and a half.

He had given up SIX homers until three starts ago, in which he's given up two in each of his last three. Prior to those three, homers versus Bonderman were rare.
