Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d write this post.  Probably because my wildest dreams don’t usually have to do with where I’d rank Emilio Bonifacio and have more to do with Swedish flight attendants and lingonberries.  But then ESPN ranked him 214th overall (I have him 126th overall in my top 300 for 2012 fantasy baseball).  They say, “Apparently, he needs to change his name to Bona fee-day. Thanks to an increasing walk rate (he drew walks in 9.2 percent of his plate appearances last year, a career high) and a decreasing propensity to swing at bad pitches (his 27.7 percent chase rate on non-strikes, also a personal best) Bonifacio became a legitimate fantasy weapon the final four months of last season, his surge during that period responsible for vaulting him into the top six on the Player Rater at both shortstop and third base. Whether it was a “helium season” or legitimate growth remains to be seen, but the walk rate alone explains his 40-point increase in on-base percentage, and since that’s a critical category for a player whose value is heavily tied to his stolen bases and runs scored, we’ll buy … to a degree. Bonifacio might have to settle for a super-utility role to begin 2012, but he’ll find near-regular at-bats somewhere, and as he qualifies at both third and short again, he’s a worthwhile player to grab in those middle rounds.”  First off, if anyone knows what Bona fee-day means, I’m all ears like Alfred E. Neuman.  Is it a play on bona fide?  Is it a play on V-Day?  Is it a play on VD?  Is a bona fee-day a bidet that charges by the spritz?  What does it all mean?  Someone, please, explain it to me!  Also, while you’re at it, explain this.  How do they tell you all these positives only to rank him crazy low?  It’s like, “You know, y’all, he’s good for steals, he has good eligibility, his walks are increasing, the lineup is better around him, worthwhile grab in the middle rounds… The middle rounds of 20 team drafts, that is.”  Huh?  Is this totally bonkers or am I missing something?  He won’t get near-regular at-bats.  He’ll get 500+ ABs.  Plenty for him to be valuable.  Then, my favoritest of favorite things they do, they tell you a guy is a sleeper after ranking him crazy low.  He’s only a sleeper, because you ranked him too low.  Anyway, why’s Emilio Bonifacio a 2012 fantasy baseball sleeper?

Honestly, I have nothing to add to what ESPN said already, except they have him too low.  That makes him a sleeper.  They have him after… Wait for it… Here it comes… Wait, where did I put it?  It was here a second ago… How’d it end up in my glove compartment?  Anyway, here it is… He’s ranked after Marco Scutaro!  Holy deity of choice, don’t listen to them.  Sure, Scutaro is now in Coors, but he’s also 36 years old and coming off a season of 7 homers and 4 steals in Fenway.  It’s not like Fenway or the Red Sox lineup is terrible.  They project 13 homers for Scutaro.  He’s never hit more than 12 in his major league career!  Huh?  Seriously, huh?!  Okay, I need to go to Woody Harrelson’s oxygen bar and decompress before I get an ulcer.

    Not sure if I should admit this here, but I know what Bona fee-day is…
    Last year during the baseball podcast, they came up with a game “Bonafide or Bona -feeday” to discuss is a player was going to continue producting or if he was going to flame out like Bonifacio…

        @Grey, The only legitimate nickname for Bonifacio is “Emily Boneface.” That’s it. Nothing else compares.

        @Grey,

        Berry and Ravitz have a section on their podcast where they discuss whether a guy who is performing well is a bona fide player. They call it “Bonafide or Bonafacio”, implying Emelio is not Bonafide.

          @Hawk, Yeah, think I got it from a below comment… So they say bona-fee day, which is a mispronounced word… Still not sure why it’s mispronounced other than it being mispronounced but I think I got it.

    I’m finding it near impossible to use your Pitcher Pairings… in a good way. I bought MadBum; cool, I know where I’m going. I get caught pushing up Lincecum, but I’ll take him at $23… slight detour. I get caught pushing up Greinke at $15?! Yes, please, that is a problem I can deal with. So I’m set to take Filthy Sanchez and Peacock to finish up, but Chacin and Cahill are staring at me.

    I think this is now four mock auctions and I’ve followed your PP (eww) but was able to upgrade at least the last pick significantly. And it’s not like I’m laying off the big names so I’m richer than I should be. Just seems to work out that way.

    Oh, and I screwed up a snake mock first thing this morning when someone drafted “Giancarlo Stanton” and I had to spend a few minutes reading up. Dubya tea eff?

      @Awesomus Maximus, If you can’t not draft a worst staff, hey, it’s all good. As long as it doesn’t hurt your hitting, which it doesn’t seem like it has here. I will say I wonder about your competition when Jennings is going for only $9 and Greinke is only $15.

      • Awesomus Maximus

        Awesomus Maximus says:
        (link)

        @Grey, They’re mock competition, obviously, but it was a full draft (no auto-pickers). Two guys were obviously dead set on the “won’t spend more than $20 on a player” strategy, which I’m a big fan of… when my competition uses it. I started tossing out $3-7 SPs early and they bit every time. Greinke hung around longer than he should have, and when he finally hit the block, they were the only two with money to challenge me, but they both needed bats way more than SPs. I love auctions.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          @Awesomus Maximus, Yeah, auctions definitely make it so you can build a team you never would in a snake. No one over $30 I can get behind to certain respect. No one over $20 is crazy talk.

            Awesomus Maximus says:
            (link)

            @Grey, Eh… even with a $30 cap, you’re basically kissing the top 15 players goodbye. And it’s not like you have huge leverage going into that next set of players. You don’t get leverage until the solid-but-unspectacular guys in the middle. That’s a pretty big handicap.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              In shallower mixed leagues, I can see spending, but in deeper leagues more depth works better so not going over $30 has always worked for me…

            i have made no secret of targeting “double o” for this year .
            i have taken him in every mock draft , plugging him in at MI , CI ,
            SS , 3rd B , OF and Util .

            my last ‘real’ draft is scheduled for March 26th ,
            after which i will unveil my 1st true sleeper since the
            invention of the inter-webs .

            only 24 days and 26 minutes away .
            it’s almost like Christmas .

              as far as my “double o” draft target ,
              much of the success depends in crazy ozzie

    Mathew Berry and Nate Ravits play a game on their podcast called “Bonafide or Bonifacio” Where listeners write in and ask if a hot player is worth picking up(bonafide) or just just teasing you with a good spurt only to suck later(bonifacio). To kick off the segment they play a pre-recorded drop featuring a guy with a thick accent mispronouncing bonifide as bona fee-day.

        @Grey,

        here , let me break it down for you :

        bona-fee-day = your blind-date ended in a miserable failure ,
        but you still have this “problem” , so you go home and call

    I would draft Bonifacio, but every time I looked at my team, this song would get stuck in my head, just like it is now:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxvGHQHiY70

    Maybe I’ll use that as my draft strategy- no players can cause songs to get caught in my head – but then if McCutchen was still around in the 3d and I need an outfielder… Black and Yellow!

      • royce! says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Yeah, I like the song, but when it’s in my head I find myself muttering “boneface,” sometimes not so under my breath. But Jesus, it’s so much better than having bad to the bone come into your head every time you read or hear the word (or a word containing) “bone.” Even Catholicism’s god could forgive suicide in that situation.

            @Grey, When you read or hear Bonifacio, or just generally. Like a day in which “bone” does not come into your head would be a happy day (until of course, you realized that it was occurring)?

    assuming I do my job everywhere else and take solid 40HR guys at the corners, what would you say if I were to draft Dee Gordon and Bonifacio? good strategy? bold strategy? or just dumb strategy…standard 12 man yahoo. no MI.

      Who are these solid 40 homer guys you speak of? I’d like some…

          @captainpyper, Yeah, Bonifacio and Gordon could work in tandem if you have enough power, but you have to make sure you have the power.

    Sup, Grey!

    I already have Votto at 1b, but Konerko is still on the board in the 6th round. I still need a 3b (Youkilis, A. Ramirez, M. Reynolds are available), what do you do? 11 team, mixed, 5×5 roto.

    First Spring Training game of the season! Balfour and De Los Santos did Fuentes a favor- 1 IP each, 3 and 1 ER, respectively. Most importantly, Brandon Allen is hitting 1.000. SO STOKED.

      the jet stream was blowing out to right field .

      montero’s shot to straight-away center , was a legit homer .

    12-man 5×5
    5 keepers – 2 pitchers 2 hitters 1 franchise
    Keepers for 3 years, Lose the rd you drafted them

    Franchise – 18th rd Strasburg

    Who do you like for the other 4?
    Kennedy – 15th, Kimbrel – 16th, M. Moore – 10th
    Heyward – 8th, Krispie – 19th, Kendrick – 14th, G. Sanchez – 12th, Bonifacio – 10th

    Thanks

    • mic says:

      @DK, Kennedy, Moore (I don’t believe in keeping closers);
      Krispie in the 19th is very good value, as well as kendrick to balance out the average…

      i don’t get it, are these your only options or did you not include your obvious keepers…

      • DK says:
        (link)

        @mic, The rest of my options were garbage. Thanks for the comment – that was the route I was going to go but kept debating on Kimbrel over the unproven 10th round Matt Moore. The guy does look like the real deal though…time will tell

    To add more fuel to this post, Ozzie Guillen has already said he’s going to make this team run A LOT. Boni really turned it on when McKeon came in and gave him the green light, and it’s been shown that Guillen sends runners more than McKeon.

    Really think Hanley can get to 30 SB, Reyes to 50, Boni to 40 and even guys like LoMo/Gaby/Stanton with 5-10.

    Bonifacio was helped in 2011 by a BABIP of .372. He’s the type of fast, ground ball hitting player who’ll typically have a higher than average BABIP, but I wouldn’t count on it being quite that high in 2012. He’ll probably lose 10-15 points of AVG.

      Losing a little average will be fine… As long he gets the steals…

    1st year in a 16 team keeper league, keep 5.
    my top 6 are SP- David Price, 3B- Ryan Zimmerman, 1B- Paul Konerko, 2B- Dan Uggla, SP- Brandon Beachy, OF- Adam Jones.

    do I trade Dan Uggla for a 3rd round draft pick (after 5 round keepers) and then keep Adam Jones? or do I keep Dan Uggla and do not keep Adam Jones?

    • @Mr Baseball, even though I have 4 closers – the team that was trying to unload Grant Balfour because they who trade with you never pay attention what your team needs are – only their needs must be having a bad day

      Grant Balfour – Balfour took a step back (temporary?) in his bid to be Oakland’s closer Friday, allowing a pair of homers against the Mariners. yes its spring training but I can see this in the regular season too

    What’s your take on Dee Gordon at pick 96 in a 12 team 5×5 keeper league (no MI)?

    Yahoo reranked him, so he no longer seems like a steal. But as a 60 steal guy he’d be Juan Pierre at SS, definitely keeper worthy. Makes me want to take him.

    With fear of a possible demotion since Dee can’t walk, and w/ Bonifacio so cheap, should I lay off the Dee?

  30. :Mets believe 1B Ike Davis has Valley Fever

    • @Mr Baseball, What is Valley Fever?

      Valley Fever is a lung infection. A fungus becomes airborne when dust around construction areas and agricultural areas is transported by the wind. When spores are inhaled, Valley Fever can result. The medical name for Valley Fever is coccidioidomycosis.

      Where is Valley Fever found?

      In the U.S. it is prevalent in the Southwest where temperatures are high and the soils are dry.
