I like your enthusiasm, but in the case of Bruce that would just be too much too quick if you ask me. He's still 19 and he is still going to need some coddling before the Reds put him on the fast track. Unless he is really mashing the ball by June, leave him in Dayton to work on the finer points of the game (plate discipline being high on that list). The last thing we need is for him to get overpromoted and start pressing because he thinks he HAS to produce at a high level even though he is still young.
