    What are you going to do? Bench him? You work with him and he's got to hit his way out of this slump.

    The Reds have such a weak bench, its really amazing that they've won so many games w/out Votto. Now with Rolen's back acting up, it's even worse.

    Bruce has a great arm. That's about all I can say about his D in right field.

    Can he be worked with.?? Does not look like it to me. This is quintessential jay bruce. He has not changed since being in a reds uniform. He has not evolved...not one iota...
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Well, I'm with The Operator. Outside of that 1 week or so, I'm not seeing how Bruce's D is anything less than stellar.

    Well we have our whipping boy for the stretch run. Nice to have that out of the way.

    Agreed. Everybody will have a bad game here and there, but overall he's a VERY good defender, toss in that arm and he's top notch.

    I wondered when he'd get tossed.

    Clevenger tossed for calling balls and strikes on 1-2.

    Castillo in, and he K's.
