    Bats lead 5-2. Jay Bruce was intentionally walked to load the bases and Andy Phillips hit a GS to take the lead.

    Bats go up 6-2 when Kevin Barker scored on a ground out.

    Question, does Bruce's stock go up when he's intentionally walked??:

    No. Only when he intentionally home runs.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    So, Bruce is good again?'

    It is hard to keep up with all of this. It seems to vary between when he makes outs and when he doesn't. If only he would never make outs, he might always be good.

    Nope, he's back to stinking again. Struck out looking in the 9th.

    What a loser!



    I do think we let our emotions and opinions swing a little too much on the latest thing he's done. Bruce is big time, and he's ready, even if he doesn't walk enough and he was in a mini-slump the last week or whatever.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Bruce probably isn't ready to succeed overly in MLB yet because he doesn't have good enough plate control. I always hoped Votto may have rubbed off on Bruce last year, but obviously Jay is still figuring it out.

    No reason for promotion for the next few weeks.

    Well don't hold your breath then.... I have been hearing some rumors about Bruce to the Reds recently.

    Compared to whose plate control and what the Reds have ?

    I would have to risk it with Bruces Plate Control

    Seems simple to me, somebody go tell Bruce to never make outs. Maybe I'll go post it on his blog.

    And Doug care to share those rumors?
