Pitchers/teams have mad adjustments on Bruce after his torrid start. Now it's in Jay's court to respond. I'm confident he will, but it just goes to show he is 21 and still has some learninng to do.
His recent struggles also make me very leary about not re-signing AD. I think it's pretty risky to put the whole burden of the offense on the shoulders of young guys like Bruce, Votto, Frazier, Alonso (plus BP & EE),etc.
If Dunn is allowed to walk, Jocketty MUST find a way to add at least one major experienced bat to this lineup (via trade or FA) before next spring. Too bad Texas wouldn't do Dunn for Volquez last winter.
Chipper Jones is a nice pipe dream.
