Jay Bruce Called UP

Postby rotoquest » Mon May 26, 2008 5:31 pm

ROTOWORLD
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Jay Bruce will be called up before Tuesday's game.

It was definitely time. The report doesn't indicate what change will be made to open up a roster spot. The Reds might as well release Corey Patterson, who shouldn't have a role with Bruce up. Ryan Freel can continue to get some starts versus lefties, though the Reds probably won't use Bruce as a true platoon player.



I just picked him up and benched justin upton. What spot in the order will he hit?

Wow thats amazing. My arch nemesis was hit with a rash of injuries and had to drop him the other day and I just picked him up yesterday figuring I would just sit on him for a couple weeks. ;-D I guess chrtismas came early.

Depending on where he hits in the lineup (I'm guessing #2) I have him around:
70 R 16 HR 50 RBI 16 SB .295 avg

haha I dropped him on Saturday, hopefully he clears waivers tonight and I'll pick him up tomorrow. I needed a roster spot because Holliday got hurt and I already had someone on the DL.

I think you're expecting too many SB's - far too many in fact. I wouldn't be surprised to see less than 5 attempts the rest of the year.
