    Zambrano has a higher BA than anyone in our starting lineup. Ugh.

    Bruce down to .265. This may not be a pretty night for the boys in Red.

    Bruce's struggles continues as he K's swinging on a high 3-2 pitch. Should have been ball four.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Increased exposure to Brook Jacoby has not helped Bruce.

    Bruce looks downright awful lately.

    I hope Baker isn't telling him to "stay aggressive," cuz Bruce is swinging at a ton of bad balls.

    Or he could be a rookie facing a good pitcher. Either way, he's falling fast and needs help.

    In the first six posts we have blame for the hitting coach and manager because a 21 year old is having trouble adjusting the major leagues. Going to be a long night.

    I don't think so. He needs the experience at this level.

    Absolutely not. He's got nothing left to prove in the minors. He's just going through typical rookie struggles.

    Was Kepp running in slow motion or is Soto that good?

    Griffey refuses to take a walk.

    Bruce is fouling off pitches he was hitting a few weeks ago. I'm not impressed with Jacoby in general and couldn't resist taking a shot at him.
