Reds face a lefty on Thursday afternoon, would seem like a better time to rest Bruce. Although Jay is hitting like he needs a month off, not a day.
This relief pitcher Brad Ziegler for DBacks had better be ready. He is a righty sidewinder who is murder on righty hitters. Guy could pitch 15 innings this week against the Rightyreds.
Maybe he was traded with Corcino to the Marlins for Stanton?
Okay, I know ridiculous, but I guy can dream can't he?
