Giants 9, Reds 8 - San Francisco takes series in another offensive show

Lots of offense. Lots of pain. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The last week has seen Jay Bruce begin to hit the ball with more authority than he had for most of the early 2015 season, and he backed up his 2 for 4 evening from Saturday with a 3 for 5 outing Sunday afternoon.  Bruce homered for the second consecutive game, drove in a pair of runs, and continued to center the ball with his bat like the May Bruce of old. If the Cincinnati Reds stalwart RF finally gets in his offensive groove, there's even a slight chance this offense will be able to overcome the continued...

Giants 11, Reds 2 - Regression hits Mike Leake

Just go ahead and forget that one ever happened. Game the of Star Honorary Memorial Nuxhall Joe The Jay Bruce has been stuck in a slump the likes of which would be laughed at by the other numerous slumps in Jay Bruce's notoriously streaky career.  He's had what sounded like a grand slam off the bat fall just shy of the wall, as well as two other hard-hit cracks caught on warning tracks - one of which came Saturday night against the San Francisco Giants.  He has, at least, been hitting the ball hard, and that finally paid off for him when he dingered off Ryan Vogelsong in the midst of the...

The Short View on Jay Bruce

First off, I applaud the argument put forth by Michael Maffie in his post, The Long View on Jay Bruce. Maffie’s statistical analysis likely swayed some of you into thinking Jay Bruce isn’t one of the big problems with this Reds ball club. I’m on the other side of the fence. I believe the Reds …

Reds break out the big bats, beat Braves 8-4

Reds offense supports a solid Marquis start to win their first Saturday game The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jay Bruce is warming up into May Bruce, as he struck two triples on the game tonight, driving in two runs and scoring one of his own. A hot streak from Bruce, which was missing from all of 2014, will likely not be enough on its own to power the Reds to postseason glory. But still, when he’s on, there are few players more fun to watch swing the bat. So here’s hoping for an extended hot streak from the Reds slugging right fielder. Honorable mentions are due to...

The Long View on Jay Bruce

This picture is a standard MLB aging curve (using wRC+, full chart here) and Jay Bruce. Anyone who has been paying attention over the past two years knows which line represents which. Jay Bruce’s MLB career has created two competing stories: Jay Bruce was hitting at an all-star level from during his prime (24-26) and …

Reds 9, Brewers 6: Pitcher Jason Marquis gives slumping hitters a lift

A little wildness helped Jason Marquis stay in the game for eight innings. His RBI single came in handy, too. Marquis ended the Cincinnati Reds’ long streak of clutch-hitting futility with a run-scoring single and slumping Jay Bruce homered and drove in three runs on Monday night in a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Reds 9, Brewers 6 - Cincinnati offense opens up to back Jason Marquis

Finally, a bit of patience and a few hits with runners on base. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jay Bruce's struggles rendered him on the bench against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday (and, in theory at least, out of the starting lineup that never was on Saturday thanks to the rain out), and nobody who had seen him play of late could really question Bryan Price's decision.  Well, if Monday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers was any indication, the Cincinnati Reds RF rested away those demons, as he went 1 for 1 with a 2-run dinger, no strikeouts, and a trio of both walks and...
