Kansas City Royals interested in Jay Bruce

Per reports, the Royals are the 73rd team to show interest in trading for Bruce. It would be impossible for the calendar to turn to trade season without Jay Bruce's name popping up immediately.  With the Cincinnati Reds in obvious rebuild mode and Bruce rapidly approaching the end of his contract, it's all but certain that we'll see the idea of trading the veteran RF bounced around both in the Cincinnati media and anywhere a sweet swinging lefty bat would improve a lineup. The first such instance leaked on Sunday, when Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe mentioned that the Kansas City Royals...

Bruce Extension Part 2: Payroll

This is an exercise, not a forecast or a prescription. It follows my post from Friday that raised the idea that the Reds consider extending Jay Bruce for three years at $43 million. A common and understandable objection to a new contract for Bruce relates to the payroll implications. It’s an easy point to make. You …

An extension for Jay Bruce?

Ben Franklin said there are two certainties in life, death and taxes. If he were alive today, Franklin would add something about the Reds bullpen and home runs. Here’s another sure thing: Jay Bruce is going to be traded. Right? It’s a lock. In fact, it’s hard to believe a deal hasn’t already happened. Reports last July …

Not even Great American Jay Bruce can save you from the Reds bullpen; Reds lose 8-7

Bruce's big effort goes for naught. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Before the Reds took the field today, Jay Bruce's .565 OBP ranked second in all of Major League Baseball over the last 7 days. All he did in this one was walk, single, and blast two dingers to help propel the Reds to victory. With that type of performance, Bruce's season line is up to .292/.350/.562 and ALL OF A SUDDEN Jay Bruce is on one of those patented May Bruce! hot streaks. Oh, by the way, Jay's funkblast in the 3rd inning crowned him the Great American Home Run King, as his 127th homerun in...

Has Jay Bruce Altered His Trade Value?

Disclaimer: All stats current as of Saturday, May 13th. I will be out of town and won’t be able to update the stats. If Bruce has two really good or really bad games, the numbers may change substantially this early in the season. Jay Bruce struggled through his worst season as a healthy baseball player …

Bullpen Happens, Reds lose 5-4

Stop me if you've heard this one before... The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jay Bruce came into this game on a cold streak. In his past seven games he had hit .150/.150/.350. Hopefully tonight was a step in the right direction as he helped power the Cincinnati offense. Bruce popped a two run opposite field home run in the bottom of the 4th, and it put Cincinnati in the lead...for a time. He also led off the bottom of the 9th with a single. Honorable Mentions: Alfredo Simon's night was a mixed bag, but it was enough to keep Cincinnati in the lead...for a time (6 IP, 3 H, 3...

Red Sox 9, Braves 4: Pedroia homers twice, Wright keeps rolling

The Red Sox made it four straight wins with a laugher against Atlanta Wednesday night. If only the Red Sox could face the Braves every day. It was another one-sided contest Wednesday night behind Dustin Pedroia and Steven Wright, with the Red Sox pulling away early and never looking back. The first inning has been Boston's territory all year, and they again managed to produce a crooked number, and there really wasn't much more to it than Bud Norris not being a very good pitcher. Xander Bogaerts singled and scored on David Ortiz' first double of the night--there would be more to come--and...
