1 difference between Bruce and Votto though........................Bruce has a glove.
Where does Bruce's power rank historically among 20 year olds in the minors. He has to up there. Though, power is usually overrated at this point and polished discipline more important, where Jay is still a bit weak.
Bruce is averaging 1 HR/ 11 AB's right now in AAA....that's just frightening.....sorry Upton, you have SERIOUS competition for top prospect honors right now.
Jay Bruce singles following another Aaron Herr homer his 4th this week.
Jorge Cantu now has a 7 game hitting streak , has had a hit in 8 of 9 games since becoming a Bat. Jay Bruce is now hitting .318 Cantu is at .323 as a Bat

Eddie Guardado on for the Bats in bottom of the 6th
Scoreless inning for Guardado allowed a hit. Now Bill Bray on in 7th.
Looping single vs Bray but nothing else, ends inning with a k 4-2 Bats going to 8th Bruce due up 3rd
Bray runs into trouble in 8th after striking out leadoff hitter of inning- Cantu commits and error- Bray walks a hitter. Salmon in a base hit and hit batter later bases loaded , run in 4-3 Bats. Tyler Pelland in one pitch dp inning over. Bats 4-3 after 8
The Reds may be having a train wreck of season, but how awesome is it to have one of the top prospects in all of baseball? pretty good feeling!
Reds fan since 1970
Jorge Cantu gets his 2nd hit tonite , now at .344 as a Bat in his 9 games with them.
