In NL Only, especially in keeper leagues, this is someone to consider adding... and here's why:

Emilio Bonifacio, the guy that the Nats traded Jon Rauch for, will be recalled today after Felipe Lopez was DFA'd. This means a 2B with rediculous speed and decent average is about to be called up not named Velez. If you're sitting there with Ryan Theriot at the MI slot as I am right now, why screw around with that, when you can get .280 average, a bunch of runs and a potential 40 sb next year with Bonifacio? Think Eric Young, but without the annoying commentary.

Some of his stats are here: http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?pl ... osition=OF

Some things to be cautious of... he strikes out a lot and doesn't walk much, but who cares if he gets you 40sb? Over 551 AB in 2007 in AA, he stole 41 bases, hit .285 and had 84 runs. Worst case scenario, he becomes Eugenio Velez and pisses you off. Best case scenario, he gets 35 steals/80 runs/.280, leading off at 2B next year. Pretty good MI production.

I leave you with a map of the former Eastern Bloc nation of Czechoslovakia for no reason at all.

Already grabbed him in the RCL, hoping he runs like crazy. What's he got to lose?

Nice map.

That's a great heads up, Iowa. I grabbed him in a deep league last night. Bonifacio is a burner.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Would either of you guys drop one of the following three catchers (2 catcher league) for him?

Inge
Clement
Mathis

I don't have an immediate need in that league for him, though if he's okay, I still have two weeks left in the trading deadline if he turns out to be lightning in a bottle. I picked him up in my NL Only keeper anyway.

I would've dropped a catcher (maybe two) and Thames. I grabbed him in my NL-Only keeper too. Lambda!

What do you mean by "Lambda?"


It's the Greek symbol for being on the same wavelength.

Cool. It sounds like something from Full House.


I think it might have been.

I think so.
