More fun with a small sample size!




My question to everyone, given the hot start that Bonifacio has put together, should the Cubs consider extending over trading him at the deadline?

I know only 12 games so far, but it seems that Boni's skill set are something that not alot of our up and coming prospects possess. He looks to be a competent lead-off hitter (I know small sample size) with speed and defensive versatility. He is also still relatively young at 28 and just starting into his "prime years."

His ability to play all over the field means he won't block anybody coming up, and can spell just about every position for a day or two without a noticeable drop off.

So the question seems to me, isn't this exactly the type of player this FO should want to hold onto? If so then how long do you extend him for and for how much? Is he going to be worth 4yrs and $20mil (5per) or if he keeps producing near what he is now, do they just try to get more prospects?

Me personally, I am leaning to keep for the right price. Eventually this team needs to start keeping some of these guys, and why not start with him?
