Nice to see Richie back in the saddle...

What's the story with him? I seem to recall that he was starting to make some real progress, and then got hurt. Did he lose velocity? If so, how much of it is back? Thanks.

I think he belongs in Louisville. Valaika should be in Chattanooga, along with Bruce. Watson belongs in Sarsota. Votto belongs in Cincinnati, if only we could trade the Hat.

Yeah, you are probably right. He has the highest OPS of anyone his age over the last 6 years in that league. That is destroying the league my friend whether you want to admit it or not.

Aronchis, in all seriousness, I admire youre going against the grain approach, but how can you not acknowledge his utter destruction of the Florida State League?

He doesn't walk enough. Its the only thing you can say about Jay Bruce in any sort of negative way right now. The guy is hitting over .320 and slugging well over .500 in the FSL as a 20 year old. You know how many guys have done that? You can count them on 1 hand.

It is what it is. This isn't destruction. Possibly for future destruction next year? Maybe. But he is still learning. He has holes in his game that need some work. If those holes close, he could destroy AA next year. But he isn't there yet.

Wait, you are telling me a 20 year old has holes in his game? Please find me one that doesn't. Those guys come around about as often as Ken Griffey Jr and Alex Rodriguez types do. Twice in about 30 years.

Wow.

Thanks Doug for posting those FACTS.

I'm I the only one that thinks Bruce could lose some weight? I know that's nit picking, but....

Jay is lighting up Sarasota. He has room for improvment, but all 20 year olds do. He is doing much more then expected.

Watson and Mateo imploded in the 7th, giving up a combined 5 runs. Dragons now down 6-4 in the 9th.

Yet, your talking about Jay like he IS Griffey or Rodrigquez. He isn't. He is a
20 year old youngster that is still developing. Destroying high A would mean he shows complete mastery of the level. He hasn't. He has done well, but not that well.

The terrible Jay Bruce hit a sac fly in his next atbat.

Doug, it's like talking to that wall over there. My suggestion is to just leave it at that and stop wasting your time.

no, I am not doing any such thing. Griffey and Arod were maybe the two best prospects that ever played. At age 20 they were each destroying the major leagues.

You are right, Jay is still developing, just like every other 20 year old baseball player in history. If Jay has done well, then I really would like to know what someone doing very well actually is. Jay is 3rd in AVG, 1st in SLG, 1st in OPS, 4th in runs, 2nd in hits, 4th in doubles, 1st in triples, 4th in HRs, 4th in RBI, 1st in Extra Base Hits and 1st in total bases. Seriously, thats doing well? All while being the 9th youngest player in High A (not the FSL, all of High A).

I don't think Aronchis is saying anyone is terrible especially Bruce, I feel he is preaching patience. The key to good minor league development is patience and the Reds in my opinion have done a good service to many of their prospects by not rushing them. I think many prospects like Watson, Cueto, and Bruce will be evaluated during the All Star break for possible moves to the next level.

Let me echo earlier sentiments: It's GREAT to see Richie Gardner doing well in AA.

24 K in 21 IP with 0 HR in AA. Yum

While it's true that Bruce is no Adam Jones (everything's better in teal), he's pretty nifty and definately on the fast track...
