Yeah, but this 1 for 2 crap is going to kill his average.

I'm not going to even try and trade this kid anymore unless a ridiculous, Top 50 Fantasy player is offered in return. This kid might be having the luckiest week of his life, but he's won me over.

My thoughts exactly. I'm offically a fan. It's fun having him on my team. Keeping him unless someone sends me a first of second round player.

He's going to make things a little more interesting in my keeper league where we keep 6.


Pujols, Braun, BJ Upton, Sizemore, Granderson, J. Santana, V-Mart, and now Bruce.. :-?

Poor Gallardo.

I would definitely keep Bruce. Replacing V-mart is probably the best choice here. If you really want to hang on to V-Mart for some reason then replace Sizemore.

The best thing about him.....only 1 K so far. That was an issue earlier this year in the minors. Looks like he corrected it.

Not sure it will last (I hope it does), but one thing is certain: He has only been able to cruise through the minors BECAUSE he adjusts so well. The guy is only 21.
I'll say it again - he is ONLY 21 and mentally is far advanced than most people think. I think he'll have many seasons where he'll hit in the .300s....assuming batting .500 for a season cannot be accomplished.

Definitely above his years and this "splash" is going to keep Reds' fans loving life for many years to come....until he gets dealt to the Nationals for 10 baseball bats. ;-7
