and Jay Bruce isn't their yet and we really have no idea what will happen to him.
If he wasn't a Reds prospect people would be bothered by his high K rate and middling walk rate. I am not bothered by either individually but taken together his BB/K(98/244, 32/85 this year) rate is a yellow flag that everyone around here is just ignoring. A rate below 0.5 is a warning. All the other offensive players in the top 15 are at 0.5 or above.
Anyone want to know what can happen when you hit the majors vs the minors, take a look at Butler's and Saltalamacchia's BB/K ratios.
