    Bruce just messed up his hand on an attempt to catch a ball.

    He walked off the field and looked okay, but it did not look good. If the ESPN rumor is true and we get Rolen from the Jays for prospects, then it could mean EE goes to Left Field and Gomes to Right.

    He shouldn't have been in there in the first place. How do you bench a guy against Jamie Moyer and Fernando Nieve and then bring him back against one of the top pitchers in the game?

    ESPN said that the talk Hal was talking about a Rolen for EE and a prospect was not totally true. It was Rolen for others not including EE. I read it on another thread after Hal was on with Marty last night. ESPN said the Reds have scouts in Tampa watching Rolen this weekend.

    It didn't look as bad as he was walking off, but your wrist isn't supposed to bend that way.

    Because it was a freak thing. Alluding to this being Baker's fault for starting him is unfair, to say the least.

    Someone said it was Dusty's fault that Bruce got injured? Do you mind pointing that post out for me?

    Saying that he shouldn't have been playing in the first place definitely dances around the subject. If that's not what you meant then we can leave it at that.

    1. He shouldn't have been playing, because asking him to break a slump against Santana is stupid.

    2. He got hurt. Maybe. Freak thing. But not the reason to rue his playing.

    Few players could use 15 days more than Bruce just to get his head together. Could be a blessing in disguise.

    Re: Bruce taken out of the game

    As I said earlier, I thought playing him tonight was a bad decision. Sitting him against Jamie Moyer and Fernando Nieve and then asking him to come out of a slump against Johan Santana is a bad move, IMO. That said, the injury is obviously a freak injury that can't be blamed on anyone. I don't think anyone's blaming the injury on Dusty. I know I'm not.
