While it's a good article that digs into good stats that point out this and that, anyone else tired of waiting already? Bruce is a singles hitter right now with no power and a great glove.
Even Doug has stopped jumping to his defense--a sign that things remain uncertain for our young RF.
If you set realistic expectations for Bruce, you won't be crushingly disappointed by his performance. His age really is
an important factor. If he's still hitting like this in five years, then yeah, his bat would be a disappointment (though keep in mind he'd still be a valuable player because of his superior defense). We're not there yet, though. Not even close.
