    If the 18 K's mean nothing, then I guess his .281 OBP means nothing either.

    Let's give him a pat on the back.

    bruce looks (sometimes) bad during an at bat, thatīs the reason lot of fans (twitter) give him a hard time.. if someone else swings the bat on the first pitch and gets a pop up they donīt complain the way they do with a bruce k (although itīs the same result)

    Here's a stat that will blow your mind.

    April 15, 2013

    Reds are second in MLB in walks (hitting, not pitching) with 51, behind Oakland's hitters at 52.

    I would guess that none of these players have the potential to be one of the best players in the game, as was once thought with Bruce. I think that's where some of the frustration is derived.

    yep, thatīs a huge factor aswell... Thatīs a reason why Iīm always sceptical about top prospects (as I am with Billy Hamilton right now)... Votto should teach Bruce how to approach an at bat
