Patterson's 4/5 night delays Bruce's callup for a week at least. :-t

bruce went 4 for 4 in the first game of tonite's 7 inning doubleheader w/2 doubles and a HR and he went 1 for 3 in the nitecap w/no Ks AND he had an OF assist..he is hitting .348 w/an ops close to 1.000

there is not the stigma on Ks like there was in joe dimaggios's day when joe d would only K 35 X all season..the K/BB ratio in bruce's case obviously doesnt affect his productivity..the other guys in the louisville bats lineup tonite were hitting .244, .254, .244, .227, .231, .232 and .320..i wonder what their K/BB ratio is ?

it sure didnt take long for yahoo to spread to word on him. glad i saw that sportsline note yesterday morning and grabbed him. i wouldnt be surprised at all to see a season similar to sizemore's 1st in the bigs, with the SB's depending on where he hits in the order. more realistically would be .270 20hr 10sb, but the kid has the talent to make a big splash

I don't know too much about this kid. Is he worth taking a look at in a Non Keeper at all?

I'd say so. He has the potential to be a lot better than most of the guys you would give your last roster spot to, and if obviously is at a level of production right now (albeit in the minors) where he could potentially come in and contribute in a significant way this season.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I just dropped Jonathan Sanchez for Bruce yesterday in my Yahoo league. I love making moves like this. It's a no-brainer. I just hope the kid gets called up sometime this month. I missed out on Braun his rookie season, so I feel very comfortable burning a bench spot on Bruce until he gets the call.

Yeah, I missed Braun last year too, so I have an itchy trigger finger for prospects. Dropped O-Cab for Bruce, similarly a no-brainer.

just dropped Owie Kendrick's bruised behind for Bruce. (my DL is stuffed with Smoltz and Posada)

I have to say I'm excited to finally get in on a rookie sensation ;-D
