Bruce Back?

Postby jtbarr » Wed Aug 06, 2008 2:08 pm

Today Jay Bruce hit his 4th HR in the last 6 games. I had him earlier this year following all the hype. I dropped him many weeks ago, as he began to decline.

I picked him up two days ago and hope to see his star re-rise. Any thoughts? I think he's definitely worth a look at since he's hitting homers fairly regularly over the past week.

i had him stashed since his cool down and have also been glad to see him get his stroke back...

the HRs are awesome...but the key stat i think is only 2 k's in last 10 games...showing hes seeing the ball better, or at least making more contact (since its not like hes walking more).

I sure hope he is back. He's the kind of guy with the potential to carry a team in the playoffs. I picked him up earlier today for like the third or fourth time this season. :-S :-?

Ive had him all the way from draft in my 10 team mixed keeper - no way would I ever let him go. In looking at his numbers throughout his career (short as it may be) he obviously makes adjustments well. It was just a matter of time before he adjusted to major league pitching. He will still have some dry spots but he will be worth it for the rest of the way this year and certainly next year.

Many thanks to Soty for the Sig
