Re: Jay Bruce, how good will be be?
I am not too concerned with his walk rate. I don't see him chasing many bad pitches for starters. He has power, and guys are going to tend to be careful with him at times because of it, he isn't going to chase it. Next thing is, he is quite young for his level, so using comparisons, even for a walk rate is tough to do because the amount of players spending the time he spent in AAA at 20 is quite limited.
So long as he draws a walk about every 11 plate appearances, I am fine with it. Thats about what he is doing right now.
