Re: How inconsistent is Jay Bruce?
Bruce is basically helpless with 2 strikes. When he gets down 2 strikes I always reflexively smirk because I know what's coming next - a strikeout. If that issue could be improved, e.g., maybe make an adjustment with 2 strikes (see Votto), then his "consistency" and numbers would look much better.
Bruce is a good player, and position of strength on the team. But every player has things that could be improved upon. No reason a player can't try to make some adjustments to do that; and I wish Bruce would would work on his 2 strike approach this offseason.
