Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and the Back Leg

Last year, Cincinnati’s two middle of the order bats both had back leg injuries that robbed them of much of their power. Because of the complicated nature of swing mechanics, maybe it’s not surprising that both sluggers were affected differently by left leg injuries. But they did suffer. “I saw a lot of ground balls […]

GOODYEAR, AZ. -- Jay Bruce was lacing up his spikes in the Cincinnati Reds spring training clubhouse and chatting with a writer when teammate Jason Marquis asked, "Why does he want to talk to you?"

Could Jay Bruce Be A Viable Trade Target?

The Cincinnati Reds were a very interesting team this year. Finishing with their worst record since 2008, the team failed to make the playoffs after reaching the dance in three of the last four seasons. Looking to rebound from a down year, you have to wonder if the Reds would consider shaking things up. It could start with Jay Bruce. Heading into 2015, there really isn’t much...

The Reds and Cardinals played only the 18th 1-0 game in the history of Great American Ball Park on Thursday afternoon thanks in no small part to Jay Bruce.

Jay Bruce Makes My Bowels Loose

I thought Jay Bruce was a lock for 30/100 not dirty undies. Thirty-hundo not dirty-undies!
