Handedness be (darned). Bruce had 1st and 3rd with one out against a righty who was getting tagged, and he waved at a high fastball out of the zone - first pitch. I could go to the plate without a bat and give us a better outcome.
Bruce will eventually heat up and then cool off again...the end result will be a .248 average, 29 HR and 101 RBI. Ludwick, with equal PT, could produce that. I just think Jay has peaked.
yes to all of the above --- but taking his rear-end out of the line-up would leave us very very short in LH hitting
and nice job Stubbs!
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
