That's interesting.

Someone want to start a 'Jay Bruce for President!' thread? Amazing things starting after that thread was started last year.

He's a stud for sure but I'm not so sure how often he'll be in starting lineups from this point forward. I just hope I can cash him in while I still can...

I do remember Braun coming out hot, then fading a bit...but didn't feel like researching the stats. Anyone feel like it?

Also, the Reds don't appear to be a contender this year. It really doesn't make any sense for them not to play Bruce everyday (minus his occasional day off). Even if he does struggle, he won't be hurting their chances in any playoff run, unless there is a dramatic turnaround in the NL Central. Sitting him for any significant portion of the games would hurt his development.

That makes more sense. Ride the hot streaks and sit the cold. Definitely an argument to be made there.

Wow. Thanks, bro.
Now what matters most is what he does from here on out. Come on Jay!

That is Chris Shelton's line for April of 2006. Obviously I don't think Bruce will flame out like he did, but the point is that you can't just take such a small sample size and find another player that became a superstar with the same line and connect the dots.

Sure, but Chris Shelton is an extreme example. Bruce has actually been more impressive than Braun was because of his BB/K ratio. That said, I don't expect the kind of impact we got from Braun last year. That was more of an outlier than Shelton even.
