• I can't see Bond being much at the MLB level. He smells like a career minor-league guy....a slap hitting Crash Davis.
• Look at the numbers Boggs produced...and at what age...in the minors. Boggs was an eagle eyed "slap-hitter", too...and eventually developed a decent power stroke. I'm NOT saying Bond is the next Wade Boggs, but their minor league profiles certainly are similar. If Bond goes to Fresno and lights it up there...why not?
