    Disappointing is a subjective opinion. I disagreed with it. Kinda simple IMO.
    If I thought Bruce was a league average player I wouldn't consider his start to the year disappointing. I think Bruce has the talent to be one of the best in the league.

    So I guess it depends on your opinion of how talented Bruce is, and how naturally gifted he is. To be honest with you I would consider even a .840 OPS somewhat disappointing for Bruce this year.

    I get frustrated with Bruce because I think somewhere in there is a .900 OPS bat.

Bruce is leading the league in doubles, he's hitting right around .270 (well above his career average), he's got 7 dingers after only getting ONE in the entire first month, he's 2nd on the team in RBI's, 3rd on the team in total bases, 2nd on the team in total hits...and that's WITH 2 pretty hefty slumps mixed in. So yeah, it's not a disappointing year at all.
    Good grief, man, make up your mind. You literally just got done telling me you didn't disagree with that comment and argued that you were not disagreeing to that one. Now you are again saying you do.

    You said you disagreed with Bruce having a disappointing year. I replied:

    Above, you acknowledge that he's in a rut "thus far." So you did agree that, to this point in the year, he's been disappointing but you cushion it by adding you think it will even out.

    So I confusingly add that it's clear you do agree he's been disappointing "thus far."

The comment wasn't a prediction, it was an opinion based on what's happened so far. So you do clearly agree with that sentiment. He is having a bit of a disappointing year right now, and no amount of maybes, ifs or laters will change that... to this point.

    Now I pointed out that you did indeed disagree with that original statement, and you're back to telling me you disagree with it even though you acknowledged earlier you did agree.

    You're contradicting yourself.

    This I agree with completely.

    I fully expect him to win an MVP in the very near future.
