JAY BRUCE HAS STRUGGLED
MIGHTILY AT THE PLATE THIS SEASON.
After Friday's game Jay "The Deal" Bruce is now batting a colossal .158 over
eleven games so far this season. Once a major attribute to the Reds'
offense, Bruce has only had only six hits in his 38 at-bats. He has drove in
one run, struck out ten times, and has
yet to go deep this season. 33% of Bruce's hits so far came in one game,
as he tastelessly rejoiced,
pretending to overcome his tussle. It may be time to worry.
If the Reds are going to win games this season, especially with the way the
starting pitching has struggled (No offense, Godzilla.), Bruce's production

games, he managed to script 22 homeruns, 58 RBI, and post a .773 OBP. If
Bruce can't mend his terrible season soon, it could promptly become too
The Reds lost Friday's game to the Pirates when Lastings Milledge singled
off Nick Masset during the bottom of the ninth scoring Andrew McCutchen.
Mike "Godzilla" Leake provided a quality start for his team going seven

inning without even producing a hit as the Pirates pitching staff politely
let the Reds back in the game with five straight walks. Orlando Cabrera tied
the game with a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth scoring Chris
Dickerson, but the standstill was short lived. The Pirates won walk-off
The Pirates are are really bad team this year. They are an organization
under the influence. Just read this article Whack Reds
wrote about their turmoil prior to the season. A lost series to the Bucs
would be nothing short of devastating.
