I'm starting to wonder if we'll see Bruce again. This is looking oddly Mets-like. Over the past few season the Mets have had injuries that they started off "day-to-day" and you never saw the guy again. Church, Reyes, Beltran, Bay.

I hope not, but this seems odd. All signs pointed to Bruce being back in the lineup tonight.

I don't think any signs pointed to that. The fact that he just started with batting practice a day ago should have been a hint it would be probably a few more days (at least) before he was back in the lineup.

RE: Edmonds, to the person that mentioned being 40 years old, I think that 40-year old is the most capable of helping the Reds right now than anyone else. Heck, Edmonds' numbers this year in the time he's got are actually pretty good. He has an 818 OPS with 9 homers in just over 250 plate appearances. I'd take that right now.

Here is the latest on Jay from John Fay:


Jay Bruce (pain in right side) said he is better but not available tonight. Maybe available by Sunday, manager Dusty Baker said. Bruce last played Aug. 30

Cabrera is also still out and will probably miss at least a few more games.

Vintage Homer. 35 pitches of complete dominance, then put one on a tee.

It was a curve ball that broke 14" and ended up on the outside lower corner of the plate, that Snyder reached out and got the sweet spot of the bat on, and it carried just over the left field wall.

It was not on a tee, nor was it that bad of a pitch. He only threw the curve after Snyder fouled off several good fastballs.

Chris Snyder has power. He has 14 HRs in only 278 ABs this year. That would be about 30 HRs in a full time season.
