Jay Bruce back to a familiar spot- batting second

CINCINNATI -- In his never-ending quest to find a viable lineup that can score more than three runs a game, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price extracted what he hopes is a gem out of the pouch and not a zircon. When right fielder Jay Bruce walked into the clubhouse Monday afternoon and checked the lineup board he did a double-take. He was batting second against the Arizona Diamondbacks...

The Night the Reds offense Put me to sleep at the Ballpark

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I went down to Cincinnati last night with my buddy Joe to see Bryce Harper take some cuts. I was one of the 38,812 last night in a stadium that seemed packed to the rafters.

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...

"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. "There is more soreness and the issue has continued....

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...

And Bruce is in as much shock and awe as opponents who have home...
