    Jay Bruce makes it 2 weeks in a Row for the Reds; BA Hotsheet #1

    1. Jay Bruce, of, Double-A Chattanooga (Reds)

    Fans around the country got to see The Boss show off his power and his wheels with a Futures Game triple--it would have been a home runs in most parks, but the bounce high off the wall gave Bruce a chance to shift into high gear as he rounded second. He's doing much of the same thing in the Southern League where he slugged 1.000 last week and is hitting .328/.406/.672 in 15 games with Chattanooga. You have to be picky to find something wrong with Bruce's game. He leads the minors with 55 extra-base hits, he has above average speed, he plays a solid center or right field with an above average arm and he he's shown the ability to hit for average as well.
    Cueto was #1 last week. He is #5 this week.

    Carlos Fisher makes the not-so-hot list.

    Wow, how good is our OF going to be in a few years. Freel-Hamilton-Bruce (I'm drooling) and that includes Hopper being a quality backup. And if we don't trade Griffey by then he is still at RF and Bruce is our pinch hitter!!

    Jay Bruce will not sit on the bench to pinch hit. If he sits on the bench for Ryan Freel for more than a day of rest the manager should be fired.

    Ryan Freel is not going to be a part of the Reds future starting outfield. Bench player, maybe. Starer? No.
