    I'd trade Bruce for Soria in a heartbeat. I'm sick of Bruce. He's terrible anymore. I could care less about his age. You can tell he just doesn't have it.

    Agreed he is horrible and my patient has run its course.

    BTW thanks Reds fans for running Adam Dunn out of town.

    Re: This author should be punched

    i too would trade Jay for a sure fire closer.....and thats it....I just hate to think what Jay could do if someone could teach him a little patience. He needs some teaching right now, maybe he is getting it, who knows?

    Its not like we could trade him for some top notch guy though....and if he gets worse over the next year or 2, i dont see his value being so low that it would be worse than it is right now....noone is going to give us a stud closer for Jay bruce right now...not happening.

    I am not going to spout out defensive numbers, Bruce is a heck of a defender. But right now Gomes and Stubbs are both out producing Bruce at the dish. How much of a fall off would Heisey be? If Bruce could be traded for a Soria the Reds would be insane not to do it.

    I like the move because we could use a better closer. As long as Cordero's a true team guy and okay with it he could still be a great reliever.

    Hypothetically, who would be play right field if that goes through?

    And that's a problem you have to work out with yourself, not Jay's problem. Most people his age are still in AA. You've got to compare him to other players at that point in their careers to truly see his ceiling. Nothing is a sure thing, of course, but running him out of town like WLW callers...and well....the Sun Deck...same thing... seems to want to do is just short-sighted and slightly retarded.

    I don't know if I would trade Bruce yet. But I sure would play Heisey or Nix more. I'm pretty sure, at the major league level, Bruce is getting all the help/advice he needs. He just isn't producing as consistently as he should, or at least as much as we expect him to. I like Bruce, but I think he has been over valued and over-hyped and can't meet fans' expectations. It's time to give somebody else some playing time.

    Could you please "tell" us how he just doesn't have it?
