    Bruce out of lineup-Sheldon thinks something is up

    http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/m...neup-on-friday

    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' Friday evening lineup against the Braves.
    In the estimation of beat writer Mark Sheldon, "something must be up," as Bruce is 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run lifetime against the Braves' scheduled starter Jair Jurrjens. His status should be updated in short order.

    Per Fay http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...n-trade-front/

    A Reds insider told me earlier that club was not close to any deals. “That can change quickly,” he said.

    The Reds have discussed Hunter Pence and Carlos Beltran. But Beltran, in particular, is expensive.

    I would not be surprised if the Reds wait until closer to the deadline before making a deal. With all the talk about James Shields and Ubaldo Jimenez, I’m not sure that a hitter isn’t a bigger priority.

    If they trade Bruce at all anything else they do is inconsequential to me from here on out. But my gut says no way would they do that, must be a Dusty thing or Jay not feeling well etc.

    Unless Jay is sick, Dusty has turned into a little league coach feeling that he needs to play every player.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    There is nothing up other than Bruce is not feeling well (be it sick or sore). They aren't trading him at any point in the near future.

    Don't know on Bruce. He's had success off Jurrgens. Must be hurting, sick. #reds

    Dizzy spells per Fay per Sheldon

    I'm not the park. But Mark Sheldon tweeted that Bruce is having dizzy spells, thus out the lineup. #reds

    Updating an earlier item, Jay Bruce's absence from the Reds lineup on Friday is due to dizzy spells.
    Good news for the Reds and Bruce's fantasy owners, as this doesn't sound like the kind of ailment that will sideline him for long. More than likely, he'll be back in the lineup on Saturday. His status should be updated again later this evening.

    So we traded Bruce for Dizzy Spells.
    "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."

    He is having dizzy spells. I figure that is probably a good enough reason to sit him.

    They can cast the dizzy spells on opposing pitchers causing them to make bad pitches.

    So Bruce is unavailable due to dizzy spells and Rolen is unavailable again due to injury.

    And the Reds are sending the mono-weakened Bronson Arroyo out there against Jair Jurrjens?

    What next?
