Billy Hamilton and Brandon Phillips could be out as the Reds go for their season-high sixth straight victory Thursday against the struggling Chicago Cubs at Great American Ball Park. Even though Votto has...

Jay Bruce is entering one of his customary hot streaks

It’s happening. At least, it may be happening. It’s hard to know for certain, but it sure feels like Mt. Bruce is starting to erupt. And when it happens, there’s nothing that can stop it. You best just get your camera and get the **** out of the way, because there is no pitcher (any handed) that is safe when the Bruce volcano starts to bubble and burst like so. When he was...

With Votto heading to DL, how will Reds approach first base spot?

CINCINNATI -- The decision the Cincinnati hoped they wouldn't have to make was made Tuesday morning -- Joey Votto is resting uncomfortably on the disabled list. "They did a full work-up on Joey yesterday (Monday) and it is the same injury (strained quadriceps) that has exacerbated," said manager Bryan Price.

Baseball is fun, unpredictable, and random

Out of absolutely NOWHERE: Jay Bruce is the Reds new first baseman. I think I know Reds baseball and specifically Jay Bruce about as well as anyone out there.

Sometimes you’re just proud of a player

[Box Score] It’s a funny thing. Jay Bruce is still our favorite player. Other guys might be more exciting, other guys are a more captivating watch, other guys are just plain better; and he’s not the superstar we were certain at points he would be. He’s a good player. But we’ve said it before, Jay Bruce is just our sentimental favorite. There’s no one that can take that...

Bruce breaks out of slump against a lefty, of course

CINCINNATI -- Jay Bruce swears he didn't realize exactly how long it had been since his last hit. It wasn't just that he had lost count at a certain point or that he didn't want to linger on the number 26. His thoughts were elsewhere as he rounded the bases on a two-run home run in the eighth inning Sunday against Milwaukee left-hander Will Smith, a home run that indeed...

Run Billy Run: Hamilton lighting up center field just as well as the basepaths

CINCINNATI -- When it comes to watching Billy Hamilton's defensive pyrotechnics, Cincinnati Reds right fielder Jay Bruce has the best view available.

Before a game against the Padres, I sat down with Reds outfielder Jay Bruce to talk about his frustrating season so far, divorcing process from results, the value of routine, and his hitting approach in general.
