    Yes! I love it. Excellent deal for both sides. Jay Bruce is going to be a great player for a long time and I hope to see him spend his whole career with the Reds. He has stated numerous times he loves playing for the Reds and wants to be here for a long time. Great person, great player. I'm excited to see him locked up long-term.

    Now sign Votto.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    EXCELLENT!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: Reds extend Jay Bruce

    Potential is there for this to be an incredibly good deal for the Reds if the Jay Bruce of August/September is the Jay Bruce we see from this point forward. Even still, it's a great deal for Bruce too since it frees him in time to sign another monster FA contract before he hits the wrong side of 30.

    It's nice to know we'll continue to see at least one of the Votto/Bruce combo in a Reds uni for the long-term future.

    So the full deal could be 7 years, $63 million for a 23 year old, GG caliber, good power hitting RFer.

    32 year old, aging, average at best defending Werth got double that for the same 7 years.

    Walt is good. Real good.

    If Bruce becomes a .900 OPS guy, he would get $20M per season easily as a FA. Crawford got more and he's not a .900 OPS guy and a LF, as opposed to a GG fielding RF.

    So, counting the option year, we got Bruce for $63M for 7 years. Considering his 3 FA years could easily be worth $60M if he develops as stated, I like this contract.
