Re: should Bruce be given a long term contract like Votto
I love me some Jay Bruce .... but hell no I wouldn't extend him right now. In another two or three years, sure, I would be open to talking extension. But with five years left? Not interested. Too many things can happen between now and 2017 that would radically change his market value.
Signing players a decade out into the future almost always bites the team in the ass before the contract is up.
