    Can Bruce play in center??

    I swear if I knew that Bruce could play center field I would take Stubbs out of the lineup so fast that it would'nt be funny.He is still a young player but im tired of watching him leave runners in scoring position.He goes up to the plate and does'nt have a clue how to have a quality at bat and knock in those runners thats in scoring position.I would put Nix in right Bruce at center and Gomes in left.
    Anyword on Dickerson? man I would even put him out there when he is able to play again.

    At any rate, it wouldn't hurt the Reds at all to pick up another outfield bat at the deadline.

    Scathing article trying to run McClouth out of ATL. Anyone think he could be ressurected?

    Bruce is just as much a problem as Stubbs right now.

    Maybe, but at this point, I don't think the reclamation route's the way to go. Too much at stake. I think the team could find room for Jayson Werth, then let Stubbs and Bruce fight over center.

    He is a problem but not as big of a problem as Stubbs.Atleast he does come threw with some hits that score's from time to time.

    Bruce is a problem right now. Get Werth and play Gomes/Bruce as a platoon having Werth play both left and right field. Stubbs can share more AB's with Heisey.

    Bruce in CF? Are you trying to make Dusty's head explode?

    We West Virginians like to make things explode. Blow it up real good.

    How 'bout prospects to Houston, Oswalt to Philly, and Werth to Cincy, A good old-fashioned three-way deal.

    Stubbs has 10 more RBIs so I can't see how Bruce is doing any better.

    West Virginians don't explode stuff we just burn couchs!!

    It would be great if we could get Werth somehow in a trade.

    As bad as Stubbs has been Bruce has been mre frustrating. They're both really hurting this team on a nightly basis and if we continually get no run production from these two former 1st round picks things are going to continue to deteriorate for our team. Bruce isn't even going to hit 15 HR or drive in 60 runs. He has been a colossal bust thus far. Stubbs just needs to make more frequent contact. When he has done that in spells he has displayed a lot more power and production then Jay Hype.
