Re: should Bruce be given a long term contract like Votto
Not unless it's very generous on the Reds' terms..
Realistically, he's going to expect a bump from the 13 million he's going to make in the last season of his current deal.
Not sure I want to risk that. We already have Bruce locked down for a long time. Why add risk at this point? Even though position players are less likely to get injured, all it takes is a hamstring injury like Jr had.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
