Re: Why not Jay Bruce in centerfield?
Just another decision in a long line of them that has had this team as a laughingstock of this league for the better part of a decade now.
The signing of patterson, the fumbling of Bruce, etc. etc. It goes on and on. Arbitration time should have NOTHING to do with this decision. You wanna win ballgames, you play the kid right now, knowing if he's what he's advertised as you're going to sign him long term anyway, so it doesn't matter 'when' he can become a free agent. and you sign him down the road.
