    Re: Jay Bruce called up!!!!!

    But seriously, I hope we don't get our hopes up too high for him. I'm 100% confident Bruce will out produce Corey Patterson by a large margin, but I do understand that he will struggle at times like all young players do. Evan Longoria of the Rays is a similar prospect to Bruce and while he's had plenty of bright spots, he's also struggled. His overall line is .247/.321/.466/ - .787 OPS though he has belted seven homeruns in 146 atbats. I think Bruce will hit somewhere along .275-.280/.325/.500+ with 15-20 homeruns if he plays everyday, and that is very solid for right now.

    Re: Jay Bruce called up!!!!!

    According to Baseball Digest Daily, the Reds will promote top prospect Jay Bruce tomorrow. The 21 year-old is mashing to the tune of .364/.393/.630 in Triple A. Said Rob Neyer today: "Has there ever been a more obvious call-up in the history of the sport?" Bruce's promotion may signal the end of Corey Patterson in Cincinnati.

    We can only hope that Patterson is gone!!!!

    again I think we need to hold on to Patterson. He is a solid defensive replacement and we could certainly do worse with a left off the bench. Plus why cut a guy and then pay him 2 mil for the rest of the year.


    I think we'd complain a whole lot less about Corey if he wasnt batting lead off

    I look for Bruce to put up Votto type numbers his first partial year.
    .321 .360 .548 908

    I am also looking for some intangibles that I think that might come with Dunn, Phillips, Votto and Bruce together as teammates, I look for them to bring some competitive drive and energy to this team along with Hairston and Freel the rest of the way. As a group I think that they will take over this team and extinguish that old losing low energy cloud that seems to be a part of the present team.

    Now I can't wait to see what moves will correspond with this, and with the movement throughout the system.

    Me too, this was just a good start. I think that Jocketty will start/is moving on what you are talking about.

    Hopefully the next move is replacing Mike Lincoln with Josh Roenicke.

    Roenicke has control issues. He's not ready...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Just a little fwiw, but Adam Dunn went 1-for-3 with a single and intentional walk against Matt Clement in his major league debut. Austin Kearns went 1-for-3 with a RBI single and HBP against Carlos Hernandez in his debut.

    He had a little spurt of wildness early in the season but has only walked two batters in his last 10 appearances (8.2 innings). His power arm is needed in the Reds pen IMO.

    And Josh Hamilton went yard.

    Well in his first start.

    Jay Bruce helps, but this team was in pretty good shape before too. I understand that most, if not all, of RedsZone will disagree with that, but even the worst GM in history could have called up Jay Bruce.
