For some odd reason, I continued to listen to WLW tonight and on came Doc Rogers. I usually avoid Rogers like the plague, but there I was listening and all of a sudden, Rogers is reading from P-Doc's column, I guess from today in which he apparently said Jay Bruce was the only fixture in the 2010 outfield. Then, Doc detonated the bomb.
"Dusty is not going to play Jay Bruce next year if he continues to hit like he has this year," says Doc. His rationale was it's dusty's contract year and he won't put up with .211 hitters starting because he wants to stay here. I know it's poison to mention it around here, but I've been thninking the same thing for some time now. It's telling in that he's not starting so much since his return, and I think we can expect the same next year. So, buckle your seatbelts, RedsZone, we might have a meltdown.
