    Jay Bruce leads MLB in no-doubt home runs

    According to Hittracker.com, Jay Bruce has 7 "no-doubt" home runs, which leads the major leagues. I don't know if this really means anything (Jose Bautista and Vernon Wells both have 6), but I thought it was worth posting.

    How far does a no-doubt home run have to go?

    Jay bruce has absolutely Failed this season.

    Dude looks like a wetawd on the majority of his swings.

    Most recently i remember his 1st AB vs cliff lee. 3 Straight fast balls he swung right through and missed them so badly i cant believe he had his eyes open.

    I would say Adam Dunn leads in this category.

    Still dont understand how people can complain and trash Bruce when he is OPSing 800 with gold glove defense at 23......

    OPS doesn't really matter when he has very little RBI's, his batting average is dropping, and his home runs rarely come at an important time. His defense is great though, but that's the only thing that makes him an above average outfielder.

    Marty said on radio the other night "Jay just can't hit with men on base". Enough said.

    Welcome to whipping boy territory, Jay Bruce. Enjoy the hollow criticisms.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Not too many people know this because he seems a bit of an untouchable from Reds fans. He compares to Dunn because of his inability to hit in the 'clutch" (there's some argument that as well), but at least he plays GG defense. With that said, it's still very fair to criticize his hitting w/ guys no base and RISP. I'd venture to say he's the last guy I want up in a 'pressure' AB out of all of our 8 everyday players.

    I think he is Dunn Jr. on offense. Hopefully he'll be able to get up to 40 homeruns someday.

    A guy with that much talent and his lack 'big AB' is very fair. Name for me one signature AB he's had so far? With his talent, you'd think you could easily think of one.

    I think he is Dunn Jr. on offense. Hopefully he'll be able to get up to 40 homeruns someday.
    That's not fair. Those 2 guys are VERY different players. Did Dunn ever hit abover .250 here? I was very hard on Dunn in the beginning, but he was simply a guy who was too expensive for a small market team like us. With all of his great attributes, his defense, lack of ability to put the ball in play in crucial situations, and lack of MORE timely hitting made me realize he's not worth it here. I'd rather spend it on pitching.

    Unfortunately we're stuck with AH for another year.

    EDIT: Yes, he hit above .250 3 times and a .249 year as well.

    Has Bruce ever hit .260 here? They both strikeout a ton, Bruce isn't great at putting the ball in play either, the only thing he does much better than Dunn at the plate is go the opposite way.
