According to Hal McCoy baseball seer and semi-sentient reporter, Jay Bruce will be up with the big club by this weekend. This should spell the end of the Corey Patterson debacle. Jay will play center field and i don't think that the Reds will suffer much defensively from this move. in fact this may be the first time in quite a while that i agree with sMarty. Now would also be a good time to let BP play some SS and get Freel into the game at 2nd base. Although Jannish is showing good plate presence and can definately play SS better than Kepp or Jerry Jr.
Who will be the lead off man. Because we know that Dusty is going to keep BP at 2b. Bruce, I guess - although it would make more sense to put him lower in the order until he gets comfortable.
Jannish SS Dunn LF BP 2b EdE 3b Griffey RF Votto 1b Bruce CF Ross C P
Jannish give a pro AB and works the pitcher into a longer count than CoPat or Freel.. He might be Ok until Kepp gets back.
When Bruce comes up I think he'll be here to stay. And I think this means that most likely Corey will be DFA'd, despite his contract.
What do you think about the coming of the BRUCE.
