    Jay Bruce Thread, Part II

    Let's continue here, the other one's over 1K posts. Can't close the thread due to my lack of physical mod powers, but thought I'd channel my inner mod.

    Whoops. Talk about a discussion killer. Oh well, Brutus--I think we said what we needed to say. So... Jay Bruce. I hear that kid's pretty good!

    Yeah it's all good. We left at a good stopping point.

    Re: Jay Bruce Thread, Part II

    The Cincinnati Enquirer makes my head hurt. On the front page of their website today is a 'Jay Bruce Quiz'.

    This is the first question:
    Four days after making his major league debut, Jay Bruce celebrated which birthday?

    The answers you get to choose from are: 20, 21, 23 and 25.

    The problem is, none of them are correct. Bruce turned 21 on April 3rd, 2008. He didn't debut until May 27th, 2008, almost two full months past his 21st birthday (which was the "correct" answer).

    The key word is "celebrated." Perhaps he was thrown a belated birthday party some 50 days later? heh

    I think they need to send him and Stubbs to AAA. Where is Chris Dickerson?

    Everytime I see Jim Edmonds around Jay Bruce, I can't help but think he's totally relished being a mentor for Bruce. Tonight I saw several more shots where he was counseling Bruce and after the walk-off, he had a moment where he looked like a proud papa congratulating Jay.

    If Bruce can put together a stretch for us even close to that of what Edmonds did in St. Louis from 2000-2005, brother, we're in business.

    That Edmonds trade may turn out to be way, way more valuable than any stat sheet could ever hope to show.

    I love Jay Bruce and always have.

    How can we give Edmonds most of the credit every time Jay does something good but place all the blame on Jay when he makes an out?

    No one is doing that. Just pointing out that it seems Edmonds has been a positive influence on him. I don't think that's deniable, at this point.
