    In 20 years, people will not be asking if Jay Bruce was as great as Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and Ted Williams. Instead, people will be asking if Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, and Ted Williams were as great as Jay Bruce.

    Joe DiMaggio once commented that he wanted to make the world forget about Tris Speaker. Jay Bruce will make the world forget about Joe DiMaggio.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Some people wear Superman pajamas. Superman wears Jay Bruce pajamas.
    The universe is expanding because it is afraid of Jay Bruce.
    Jay Bruce's tears cure cance... too bad he has never cried.

    Every year, to work out his throwing arm from CF, Jay Bruce selects a lucky child to be thrown into the Sun.

    Jay Bruce simply forces baseballs away from the plate while hitting with only a sheer force of will. No baseball bat is required.

    Although Jay Bruce is not a pitcher, the pitching mound will be named Jay Bruce's Pile O' Dirt in his honor. Because he said so.

    It will be Oriole fans who get to see how good he is. The beginning of the last phase of Wayne's tenure begins when he trades Bruce, as I'm figuring he will do in the next 48 hours.

    Jim Carrey will star in a movie portraying a mortal on which Jay's powers have been bestowed.

    It will be called "Bruce, All-Bruce"
