Not only that, bros - but you HAVE TO LOVE people who hold out hope on athletes that are stinking up the joint, then one big play and its, "NOW WHAT!!! TOLD YOU!!! WHAT UP!!!!!! Then, of course, the athlete goes back to sucking the next batch of games...

Watch and see how many home runs are hit by players sitting on the waiver wire - A LOT. There is a reason there 's a reason they are there.

Hilarious.

The jury is still out on Bruce, but talking smack after only one good performance in several weeks is ridiculous. :-B

While I agree it is ridiculous to post a "Told ya so" comment after one good game, it is equally ludicrous that the lot of you have already dismissed his value 130 ABs into his major league career. His overall numbers are, in fact, solid so I'm not processing the criticism here.

If you have room, you really should keep him and bench until he adjusts (or doesn't). If you've dropped him, I would be wary to post "I told ya so" rebuttals to other "I told you so!" comments.
Way to early to tell here.

Totally agree. He is sitting on my bench as I type. I think he will be good. Question is when? Sooner or later?

He's not playing any worse than my current masters of suck, Beltran and Jose Guillen, so he's still active on my roster for now. I'll take the bumps. And FWIW, I think he gets on track (~.270, 15+HR, numerous Ks) after the break.

To all those dismissing Jay Bruce already, you might want to keep tabs on him. He appears to be cutting down on his K's a bit and putting the ball in play (5 K's in his last 24 AB's... not great... but an improvement). Also take a peak at his splits, he has raked against righties (.302/.352/.542 17 runs, 6 HR, 15 RBI's and a respectable 8:22 BB:K ratio), and struggled big time against lefties (.213/.321/.255 5 runs, 0 HR, 4 RBI and 7:16 BB:K in 47 AB's). He also is a better then .300 hitter at home. Just signs he might be able to put it together. In shallow leagues that probably isn't good enough, but in deeper leagues it might mean he's worst rostering on the bench, and spot starting at home against righties. Also, if he rights the ship even a little bit on the road and against lefties he could be a very useful player in the second half, and likely better then the waiver fodder floating around right now. Not really an update, just something to think about.

Average down to .267... decent? sure. but I'll pose the question again like when I started the thread:

Why keep holding on to him instead of looking at somebody else that is producing? At this point what superhuman stats are we expecting from him to justify his spot on a fantasy team?

Is his "potential" still better than all of the stats sitting on the waiver?
