Jay Bruce's UZR rating for the season is up to +12.8 with a UZR/150 of +15.7. His 12.8 UZR easily leads all major league right fielders. That, combined with his league average bat this season, gives Bruce a WAR of 2.5.
I miss Adam Dunn.
As '62 said....23 years old. Amazing.
Baseball is like church, many attend, few understand
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
It's been pretty obvious for two years that Bruce is jumpy at the plate. Where's Jacoby been?
Sometimes no matter how much a point is pounded into a guy's head, it doesn't register until it comes from a particular voice, said in a particular way, at a particular time. Maybe, just maybe, Jim Edmonds fits the criteria. I wonder how many of us butted head with our parents over things but struck a chord with an uncle, a teacher, a pastor saying the same thing as our parents...it happens.
Whoda thunkit, Jim tap dancing Edmonds.

If what we are witnessing is truly Jay Bruce beginning to heat up for the stretch run... ooohhh, Have Mercy. The thought of what a hot Jay Bruce could mean to this team's playoff hopes makes my mouth water.
I am so in love with this team.
