He's got very good minor league numbers, very similar to Jose Reyes...in 635 minor league games, he stole 233 bases with a BA of .285. So he can hit for a decent average and give you tons of steals but not much more than that. Olster from ESPN wrote a piece on Boni comparing him to J.Reyes - - - that should tell you something!
He likely won't hit another HR this yr but that is not what you expect when you get Boni man, so sit tight and enjoy his SB's while everybody else is about to hop off his wagon!
Stop sniffing the glue right now, it's not good for you and is making you delusional. He's probably about a .265 - .275 hitter in the majors, no power, not really an on base machine either. His minor league K rate is once every 4.8 AB, Reyes once every 6 AB , a difference of 25 every 600 AB, rather significant (25% more). BTW some of the guys on ESPN are idiots, you should know that by now. To compare him to Reyes is blasphamy. Bonifacio has nearly twice as many minor league AB as Reyes, 2574 to 1303, that should give you a big indication Bonifacio is nowhere near Reyes. Forget zip codes, Bonifacio isn't even in the same country. I'm not saying he's useless, but he's not a top 10 rounder in a standard yahoo 12 team roto league either, which means he's not overly valuable. So yes the bubble has burst. You won't be trading him for a top end player unless you trade with an idiot. He's a 2 category player who won't hurt you much in a 3rd and will provide you almost nothing in the other 2. Somewhat useful yes, but not like he's been hyped, i.e burst bubble.
