How 'bout that Willie Bloomquist!
The speedy, versatile player stealing bases and perpetrating a fantasy stud just two years ago was the Florida Marlins' Emilio Bonifacio. You remember Bonifacio, don't you? On Opening Day that season, Bonifacio had four hits, including a homer, scored four runs and stole three bases. It was indeed Tuffy Rhodes-like. Everyone in fantasy wanted Bonifacio, even though there really was no evidence he could sustain a high level of performance. Through seven games, he was hitting .485, with 11 runs scored and four steals. The rest of the season, he hit .234 with no home runs, and while he stole 17 bases, he was also caught stealing nine times. He went from the most-added list to the most-dropped list in a matter of weeks.
