Any projections as to when this kid will be called up? Yahoo writers mention him as someone to add given Patterson's recents struggles.

Thought this a one stop shop for Bruce...

j/k

My bad everybody.

I will say that I agree it is intriguing to see what happens if Patterson continues to struggle. Hopefully Dusty comes off the veteran kick, as he seems to be doing by playing Votto over Hatteberg, and rightly so.

Hairston Jr. with 4 hits in his debut as starting CF/leadoff:
CINCINNATI (AP)—Jerry Hairston Jr. had four hits in his debut as Cincinnati’s leadoff hitter, and Adam Dunn and Brandon Phillips each homered Tuesday night, leading the Reds to an 8-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

This will probably slow down Bruce's call-up. :-?

No way. Hairston is not the answer. This is only one game people.

I agree. Hairston is crap, and very soon he'll show his true colors. And soon Baker's nostalgia for the 2003 version of Corey Patterson will wear off. I say Bruce is in the majors by June 1 at the latest, but probably my the middle of May. The real question for me is what kind of stats he'll put up. Are we expecting a Braun like impact or a more traditional .267/20/70 rookie season?

Here's hoping Votto's strong play will knock some sense into Dusty and convince him to call up Bruce. There's no question his bat is big league ready.
