Should a guy resist the temptation to pickup Bonifacio? He's just a utility man, but I would think the Cubs will keep him in there as long as he's on this Terror...
But, as soon as it's over, is his playing time as well?

I think Bonifacio will be a starter for most of the season... I don't see why he wouldn't be. Not much competition.

Ride him while he's hot but I wouldn't expect this to last long. His speed is for real but once he cools his playing time becomes suspect, especially if the Cubs consider bringing up Baez around midseason. Regardless he should be a decent source of speed if you can plug-and-play when he's active, but I wouldn't expect much more than that.

1- He's taken in all my leagues
2- I would've grabbed him in the last round in my leagues if it hadn't been for other options available like Byrd (seriously), Khris Davis, a closer....He was on my list of guys to grab last though.
3- He can play a ton of positions so he will play a lot even if he doesn't get a steady spot.
4- 40 steals last year despite being a utl guy. All it takes is one guy getting hurt....

Yes. Definitely worth grabbing.
I grabbed him in 2 leagues when he got hot, and just missed him in another :(
I love mock drafts.

don't forget about how he finished 2013 for KC; he was pretty good almost all of the final 2 months

Within minutes of starting this thread, he got picked up in my league... I should've pulled the trigger, have a feeling I'm going to regret.

I picked him up in one of my leagues. 2 more stolen bases today.

His hidden value is the multiple position eligibility. Love the fact that he can play 3rd. I have him in there with Beltre on the shelf.

He always had a pretty decent OBP to utilize that speed.

Only problem I see is scoring runs with the rest of that Cubs offense.

The guy is still sitting on my WW, taunting everyone. I'm considering dumping Granderson's bum ass for him. I should have never violated my no-Met-bats policy.

I picked him up then dropped him. Had better options at my MI/CI/OF spots and a boatload of speed. Needed a pitcher off the waiver wire badly and got Skaggs. Hopefully my gamble pays off.

Bonifacio shouldn't be on anyone's waiver wire right now. I would probably cut ties with Granderson....


And is Bonifacio is still on waivers then who else is out there?
