Bruce started out fast and furious but now seems to be in a funk. Those K's are starting to rack up in his last 8 games:
32 AB, 4 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 0 SB, 13 K, 3 BB

Obviously still very talented and this might be a blip on the radar but he was K'ing at an alarming rate at AAA so definitely keep that in mind.

Of course it's a little disconcerting, but I don't think the Reds will make a move. They've committed to the youth movement and he doesn't have anything to prove in AAA. He's going to be learning on the job most likely since the Reds aren't going anywhere (last place in the Central.)

I've already dropped him in a 12 team mixed league where I was already fairly strong in the OF and picked up someone for help elsewhere.

So glad I dealt him while he was red hot, I held on to Justin Upton because I thought he could keep it up after his hot start...I learned my lesson. These guys are just too young right now.

Would you guys still buy high in a keeper? Like for a Quentin or Giambi? Could be a big loss this year, but huge gains for the future.
