I know everyone is jumping down A's throat for his comment, but lets be reasonable about Jay Bruce -- he's jumped from A+ to AA to AAA within the span of a year. I think you'd have to be a loon to think he wouldn't be a little overmatched at this level right now.
Even if he ends the season in AAA hitting .250-.260, the amount of progress he's made forward should really prepare him well for another breakout year next year.
No shame at all in any of this.
