Re: Jay Bruce willing to play CF
I sure hope they take him up on the offer. And I hope he comes in lighter this year in any event. He doesn't need to get stronger; he should focus on staying lean and healthy. Range matters in RF too.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
