    If it wasn't for gas prices and me only being 17 on a school night before exams...I would definitely be there.

    School exams come and go, there is only one Jay Bruce.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I am thrilled he is finally getting the call, but expectations need to be reasonable. He is just 21.

    Patterson needs to go to the bench. Bruce for Patterson alone makes this a much better offensive team.

    Is this the biggest call up in Reds history?

    My expectations are reasonable. I remember that when Bruce was 19 he hit a ball so hard that it went through the first baseman's glove and the only person able to catch it was Jim Coombs who had to leap over the wall and do a triple lutz.

    Isn't Bruce in the Reds HOF already? Now you want his # on the outfield wall? Demanding aren't we?
