Battle Flex, Week 3: A Injury Of Your Peers

Last week, I got a big fat punch of what's happening in my mouth with my flex picks. I don't think I've ever been as wrong as when that one time I thought it was a good idea to draft Jay Bruce ahead of Giancarlo Stanton. Hey dumba*s, wrong sport! You'll have to excuse me, I'm still stuck in baseball and crossing my sports. To call my calls a train wreck is insulting...

With the season winding down, the leaves changing, and fantasy 'ships on the line, I posted a question over on the Reddit Fantasy Baseball sub last week.  I asked what fantasy baseball topic redditors would most like to hear about on these electronic pages.  There were many great responses and although I only committed initially to writing about the subject that got the most...

We still love you, Jay

We are hoping (and praying) that this is not the case, but it is a very real possible that Jay Bruce is somehow inconceivably entering his last two weeks as a Cincinnati Red. It is sad, and it makes us a little sick to our stomach. This was the player we had hoped that our kids would grow up watching in Cincinnati. There are whispers that the Reds ownership wants to clean house...

Watch Jay Bruce rob a home run against the Cardinals

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. That goes for the numbers on each side of the scoreboard as the Reds' right fielder had an eighth-inning single that put Brandon Phillips in position to score the only run of the game one batter later and robbed Matt Adams...

It’s time for the Cincinnati Reds to play their call ups

The Cincinnati Reds 2014 season is over. While they aren’t eliminated yet, they are eliminated. Last night they lost 14-5 to the New York Mets. The team is 11 games back of first place. They are not making the playoffs. Even if the team were to win out, the odds still aren’t good that they would make the playoffs. Yet in last night’s loss, the lone position player call up that...

The Decline and Fall of the Milwaukee Brewers

It’s taken until September, but the Brewers are who we thought they were… and it’s not pretty. Milwaukee has lost 6 games in a row at just about the worst time possible. With only a month to go, instead of looking in the mirror, Milwaukee is looking up at an NL Central leader for the first time all year. Before the season started, we thought that the Central would be a three...

Jay Bruce on rough 2014 season: “It’s honestly been the most embarrassing year of my life”

Jay Bruce finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Saturday’s loss to the Pirates and is now batting .217/.292/.369 with 130 strikeouts in 114 total games this season. He’s sporting a career-worst .661 OPS and it looks like he’ll finish with fewer than 20 home runs for the first time since breaking into the major leagues in 2008. On a related note, Cincinnati is six games below...

Jay Bruce Makes My Bowels Loose

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

Jay Bruce makes his finest catch of the year

Jay Bruce will be a gold glove outfielder, they said. This is that guy. Giancarlo Stanton sure has been hot lately. He didn’t get out of Cincinnati without wrecking some buildings like the Godzilla that he is, but in his bid to hit his second home run of the day and 30th of the season, Jay Bruce touches the sky and brings it back.

Jay Bruce robs Giancarlo Stanton of 30th homer

After hitting his 29th home run of the season in the first inning against Johnny Cueto, Giancarlo Stanton looked to get his 30th in the eighth inning. However, Jay Bruce had something to say about that, scaling the right field wall to rob Stanton. Sorry Giancarlo – if you want your 30th homer, it’s not going to come in Cincinnati.

Jay Bruce robs Giancarlo Stanton of home run number 30

During a weekend when one of the greatest outfielders of all time is being honored, Ken Griffey Jr., it is only fitting that the Reds turn out at least one fantastic play in the outfield. On Sunday, right fielder Jay Bruce did exactly that. In the eighth inning against the Marlins, Giancarlo Stanton hit what he thought would be his 30 home run of the season, but then Jay Bruce went...

No pity party: Jay Bruce remains positive, despite up-and-down season

CINCINNATI -- There are scores of players who could not endure the mistrials and tribulations of what has transpired this year in the baseball life of Cincinnati Reds right fielder Jay Bruce. They would relapse into deep funks, they couldn't eat, they couldn't say a positive word to their wives, they couldn't sleep, they couldn't look their teammates in the eye. And...
