I'm not talking about his stat line or even his career numbers. I'm talking about his ceiling. Jay Bruce is a fantastic TALENT. Now whether he capitalizes on that to the fullest extent remains to be seen. But I don't think anybody disputes his ability. He wasn't the #1 player in the minors as a fluke.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
