    Bruce has looked better.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Just chiming in to say that Pete Rose is still making money on TV commercials and that if the Reds win this series with essentially no offensive output from Votto and Bruce, it can't be a bad thing.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Bruce is an instinctual hitter, hitting his best when he isn't thinking, only reacting.

    In that last at bat, it sure looked like he was trying to guess on every pitch. He was sitting on breaking ball away that last pitch and could not catch the heat.
    Makes sense.

    And no Ryan Ludwick.

    They need to bring in a personal hitting coach for Bruce to get him right. It's obvious Jacoby isn't doing anything for him.

    I'm wondering if we can get Stubbs back and send the Indians Jay Bruce, instead. I don't think it would be any worse.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    How short of a leash does Mr. Arroyo get here? Simon and Para have yet to appear in a game this season.

    Dear Lord.

    It's the third game.

    The Reds are winning.

    Enough with the Bruce nonsense.
