Does anyone see a drop in Bonds Numbers this season?

With all of the talk of the designer steriod he was taking..he obviously wont be on them anymore. Will his power numbers drop and his body start to breakdown ( I thought that was a side effect of discontinueing steriods).

He was obviously on them since his personal trainer has been indicted because of his involvment.

I dont believe they will drop off alot but a slight decline wouldn't suprise me.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Yeah hopefully I'm not in a position to take him because I think I'm going to let someone else take that risk.

His numbers are going to decline by at least 5 or 7 hrs

who?

Don't you mean San Francisco OF?

I'm not sure about a decline in San Francisco OF numbers, he should still be a safe bet for

330 AVG
40 HR
100 RBI
100 Runs

He is a cafe sleeper and I don't believe that San Francisco OF should slip out of the first round.

I think that if anything can stop Bonds, it's not what he is or isn't taking, but simply his age. Not that Father Time has slowed him down in the past, of course.

In any case, let's just hope that his numbers don't drop to zero if he isn't included in some fantasy games...

Good post Arlo. Yeah age and possibly walks are the only thing that could slow Barry down.

I think he's going to put up "Bonds like" numbers. Expect .330-45-100 at the minimum barring injury

I think if his numbers go down a lot pf other players numbers are going down with him and he would still be head and shoulders above the rest. My only concern is still the existance in fantasy of the player formerly kbow as Bonds or as i like to call him: $

I don't expect Bonds to get enough at bats to do any major damage this year. The Marlins proved how weak the Giants lineup is if you just give Barry the free base. I expect tons and tons of walks, some intentional, some intentional but not so obvious. ;-)

Of course, if he gets enough swings, he will do some serious damage. I just think the bat will be taken out of his hands even more next year. We'll see.

As Arlo pointed out, he might not even be in the game. We'll have to wait and see on that one.
