Jay Bruce is killing the ball. A 436 foot opposite field home run tonight? Impressive!
Usually, on the rare occasion that Bruce hits a ball opposite field, it's weakly hit. This was quite honestly the best, hardest-hit ball he's had in his career IMHO.
Doing that kind of thing is the only thing stopping him from being an MVP-caliber hitter. Well, that and making more contact.
