Re: Bruce a new strikeout machine | Votto & Choo on-base machines
Bruce has altered his approach a bit, going the other way more often. He may be missing more as a result of trying to change , that and he still has troubling laying off low outside breaking stuff. I think he'll eventually benefit and continue to develop as a hitter. He is on pace to once again increase his homer totals. I do hope the contact rate increases a tad (and given career norms it should) but the walk rate will likely not improve significantly. Bruce's value is not OBP but the slugging. I guess what I mean is that Bruce seems to be to still be evolving a bit so while the strikeouts are a bit frustrating, I don't think we're seeing Bruce's best by any means yet.
