Re: Bruce headed for AA
ummmm. Bruce has a wonderful swing.
It's possible that he could play center. I would hate say that he couldn't, but the reds have a ton of guys who don't project to hit anything like bruce, but need to stay in center in order to have any shot at a career (Szymanski, Stubbs, Dickerson) None of those guys are going to get to the majors unless they are centerfielders. Bruce is certainly going to hit well enough to handle a corner.
Austin Kearns projected about as well as Bruce does. He was a year older, but he hit with more power and got on base a lot more. I'm as excited about Bruce as anybody, just remember there are no sure things.
