Breeeeeeeeews for Bruuuuuuuuuuuce.
That was me, and I stand behind what I said... he had a .780 OPS (ish) at the time. When that conversation was happening, his overall body of work was still, frankly, not real good. I am not sorry for being disappointed by that. I never he wouldn't bring that OPS back up to where it belongs, I merely said that if he continued hitting .750-.780, it was a disappointment. But nice attempt at trying to revise the history of the conversation. There's no person on this board that wouldn't be disappointed if Bruce had finished with a sub-.800 OPS. So really, the condescension is a bit uncalled for; especially since I recall you getting upset at someone just the other day in the game thread for doing exactly what it is you're doing here.
