Lets also not forget that Jay Bruce will be playing in Cincinnati, while not Coors in its day, its still a pretty friendly home run park.
Ok...I found his home/road splits on baseballreference.com. Now Doug...I love your insight and posts. But you threw that stat up there as if it shows he is an equally good hitter at home and on the road...that season he was. But over his career he has been significantly, and I mean significantly better at home. Let's just be fair here.
1995 H 1.131
1996 H 1.248 (half season played)
1998 H 1.240
