Re: So when is Bruce going to start hitting?
I don't really see the reason for jumping on the thread starter here. He's got a legitimate gripe. I don't care if it IS early in the season. Not producing is one thing. Being in a slump is one thing. Having consistently poor ab's and swinging at balls in the dirt consistently is a whole different ballgame. I don't think anybody is under the assumption that he's NOT going to break out of it. It's more along the lines of "at what point do you start to worry?" Why not be pro-active and give him a couple days off. Because at this point, it looks like his head is getting in the way.
And FWIW, I'm one of the bigger Bruce-backers around. I love this kid and think he'll have an absolutely monster year. But as this sort of thing continues...it tends to snowball.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
