Re: So when is Bruce going to start hitting?

I think he would get more than curves in the dirt if his protection wasn't Hanigan every night or Gomes when he is lucky every 5th day.
But if he isn't hitting in the top of the lineup he'll have just over 500 at-bats and that's without sustaining any injury.
Out of Bruce's 27 ABs this year, 18 have come hitting 5th and 9 have come hitting 6th.
In what world is 5th "low" in the lineup?
That would be the middle of the lineup.
