Basically the point I was trying to make is that sometimes on here I feel as if we are forbidden from saying anything that could be remotely taken as negative against the beloved boys when they struggle (Votto, Rolen, Bruce), but other guys get ripped to shreds on a constant basis when they struggle.
The original discussion of the thread was fear due to Bruce's slow start and when/if he would get going and turn the corner. No reason some people cannot have that fear until he does turn the corner.
1. Because not all players on this team are equal in terms of talent, and some would reasonably be expected to play to a true talent level that dwarfs others (Bruce > Gomes) and three weeks is a crazy timeframe to start agitating in the same way that was agitated last year regarding a guy with Bruce's talent level.
