Jay Bruce's receding hairline

Postby jamesmarsden » Wed Jun 04, 2008 6:03 pm

unfortunately jay bruce has a badly receded hairline despite his young age.

although not a traditional injury, will this potential sign of premature aging affect his long term value in keeper leagues? is bruce going to be able to acquire a legal hgh prescription to combat premature physical deterioration even though the product is banned by mlb? i hold bruce in a ten player keeper league and am concerned about how this injury will affect his future play, and am wondering whether or not i should sell high right now.

Sell high? Once this info hits the national stage he'll be completely worthless. You should drop him immediately before the rest of your team catches this condition..

no comment on the hairline, but regarding selling high: I just turned Bruce and Cueto into Jose Reyes. Likely hard to get that much value, but if you find a guy who's been following Bruce's minor league career, well, you may be surprised at what you can get from them. I was.

i am not actor james marsden, just a fan of his work. i have never seen the tv show buffy and first saw james in 1998's (i think) disturbing behavior which also featured katie holmes and the kid who played edward furlong's former character in terminator 3.

turning bald bruce into reyes is a steal especially positionwise though reyes's inconsistency is somewhat worrisome

Thats pretty ridiculous seeing as Cueto is barely rosterable right now and Reyes is on a tear.

Maybe he's lying about his age like Tejada. :-o :-o Maybe he's actually 44 and not 21!

bwahaha, this is hilarious. I nominate you for a jester icon. :-b You've got Bruce in a ten player keeper league, and of all the legitimate concerns you might have about him or your team in general, you picked his receding hairline to be worried enough to make a post on? Hilarious. But on a more serious note, i don't know that i've ever known of a baseball player that had a receding hairline at such a young age who also produced to expectation level. I mean, with such a malady, you could hardly expect that Bruce would be able to hit 3 homeruns in a game like his teammate Joey Votto did. You should probably sell high. }:-)

Please, please, please tell me the original "receding hairline" post was a joke :-?
