He's just not capable of hitting major league pitching right now. He'll be below .250 soon, if he's not already. I know he's up here to stay but it's depressing to watch the guy whom most of us feel will be the corner of the franchise flail away like this. Hindsight is definitely 20-20 but it sure seems at this point like Bruce's 2008 would have been best spent in AAA learning some plate discipline and how to control the strike zone. While I'm here, please allow me to take a few more whacks at the dead horse that is Brook Jacoby. No one - NO ONE - on this team is hitting better than they were last year or producing at a rate one might expect given his minor league numbers or pedigree (and before someone references Chris Dickerson, I remind you it has only been a couple of weeks - Mr. Bruce was hitting .897 after his first three weeks here). I really, really hope he is not here next season. It seems so obvious to me, the rank amateur.
