I'm about done with Jay Bruce. Did you hear Marty and Brantley when Bruce K'd in the 8th after Votto's gift double? You may not like Marty anymore, but Brantley is topnotch.........and he started it.
Count goes 0-2.....
Brantley: Jay's not even choking up on the bat. Gotta do whatever to get Votto to third when you have no outs.
Marty: I know. Why in the world a guy would be thinking home run here down 0-2 in the count is questionable.
Bruce K's on a bad pitch.
Marty: And Jay Bruce strikes out on an offspeed pitch far out of the strike zone. Jay Bruce cannot hit with men on base. (paraphrasing)
And I agree. I'm about done with Bruce. He is soooo overrated. He'll be 28 years old someday and people on this board will be talking about his "potential" and the overused "he's still young". It gets old. Just frickin' produce. But he can't.
