    Alright, lets wait til he has 50 AAA at bats to even discuss this. I bet he'll be hitting over .300 by then though.

    Call it merely a hunch, but I think this Smit kid is going to end up a steal a la Brandon Phillips or Josh Hamilton. It will probably take a while, lets call it a delayed steal.

    Smit and Pelland are two power lefties who could be dominant at the end of games if they can find any consistency.

    Seriously, how did you come up with this? I've got a guess.

    I know everyone is jumping down A's throat for his comment, but lets be reasonable about Jay Bruce -- he's jumped from A+ to AA to AAA within the span of a year. I think you'd have to be a loon to think he wouldn't be a little overmatched at this level right now.

    Even if he ends the season in AAA hitting .250-.260, the amount of progress he's made forward should really prepare him well for another breakout year next year.

    No shame at all in any of this.

    Bruce looks like he is holding his own at AAA. Couple of strike outs and a couple of walks, solid contact on most of the balls he put into play. I say leave him at AAA the rest of the year. If the Reds trade Jr and Dunn they are going to need him in the outfield next year not in AAA next year.

    Sorry to hijack the Jay Bruce batting average argument but I agree. Everything I have read about the kid sounds very promising. Maybe not on the level of BP or Hamilton but I think this guy will help the Reds sometime down the road.
