After an offseason of non-stop trade rumors, Jay Bruce is still here, and he’s here to make the most of it. Jay Bruce’s tenure with the Mets has not gone swimmingly so far.

If he was able to keep up that offensive pace, he would have been exactly what the Mets needed. But he did not keep up that production. In his first six weeks with the team, Bruce hit just .174/.252/.285—just a paltry 43...
