    I'm concerned that he needed an error to drive in a runner in scoring position right there on his base hit.

    No.

    But I'm concerned about Jay Bruce. Can we start a thread about him?

    Only a few posters are enjoying it, most are too embarrassed to do so.

    I don't think anyone needs to be embarrassed except for the ones berating people for making a point they disagree with.

    .328 / .522 / .516. / 1.038

    As soon as this slump ends, he should be fine.

    Yep, his swing was getting downright ugly. The good thing about Votto slumps is, they never last long and he always does other things to pick up the brief slack.
