Re: Bruce a new strikeout machine | Votto & Choo on-base machines
Wait. Until I read this thread, I had no idea Jay Bruce was streaky. What a revelation to find that he goes through times when he strikes out like he's Dave Kingman and others when he hits like he's a lefty Miguel Cabrera.
Next, I'll find out Votto takes a lot of pitches.
It's easy to get up and down with Jay's streaks. By the end of the season, he will have given the club what he always does. He's a lifetime .260 hitter with good power. At this point, he is what he has always been and always will be. There are a bunch of teams in the league who would love to have a guy who hits like he does and who can defend his position well.
