    Jay Bruce named Player of the Week

    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Does anyone blow as hot or cold as Jay Bruce? I wonder if that is how he will be his entire career. It's crazy how locked in he gets when he is hot.

    By the way, MLB misspelled Cincinnati as "Cincinatti." Nothing like knowing the city name of one of your oldest franchises.

    Congratulations to Jay.

    It's not so much hot and cold. It's home and road. Jay has a huge home/road OPS split over his career. Lifetime .912 home, .710 road.

    He's young, I'm confident he will hit better on the road as time goes on.

    Has been on fire this homestand, certainly deserves the award.

    In recognition of his National League Player of the Week Award, Jay Bruce will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.
    I'm sure he will wear that fine piece all over the place.

    He can now wear one on both wrists and both ankles. It is the 4th time in his career that he has been named NL Player of the Week.

    My wife got me a new watch for my birthday. Jay should be so lucky as to have one that nice.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I wonder if he'll be saying, "What time is it? Let me check my -- Player of the Week -- watch. Anybody else need to know what time it is? Joey? Brandon?"

    Somewhere that "I hate Jay Bruce" kid is losing it. Haven't seen him posting around here in a while.

    Good on Jay Bruce.
