    Small sample size and one coming off an injury. There is something wrong with Bruces approach/swing but to put Cisco above him because of a week or two of triple A games is very premature.

    True, but Bruce was on a rehab assignment after having not played in 2 months. Franchester has been healthy and playing.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    There's nothing premature about it because it is not projection. Cisco out produced Bruce while they were playing together. That's all I said. Cisco might not maintain the kind of bat he showed at Louisville. But for quite a while, Bruce hasn't shown that he's much better than what we saw here. He should have more power than he showed but his BA and OBP were consistent with his pre-injury big league numbers.
