Jay Bruce: Don’t Panic!

Jay Bruce

Short and sweet today as I have a point to make, but not a lot of time to make it in. In it is in our nature to make hasty decisions, especially during the first week of fantasy baseball. One guy I was high on is really stumbling out of the gate. Reds’ outfielder Jay Bruce is making me cringe every time I think about putting him in my lineup.

Through four games, he is hitting .067 (1-15) with that one hit being a single. Yes, this is way to early to be thinking about making a rash decision, but hey, it wouldn’t be the first time I judged too quickly.

Last season, I made the intelligent move of writing off Giants’ 3B Pablo Sandoval. Yes, I did this in two leagues, and I have not heard the end of it, even today.

I mad this decision based on a slow start to the beginning of the season and my displeasure with Sandoval’s initial position in the batting order. Now, the lesson I am trying to teach everyone here with Jay Bruce is that if you are a Bruce owner, then please, for the love of God, HOLD ON TO HIM!!! 

Let’s learn from my incredibly stupid past and try to right my wrong. All Jay Bruce owners need to hang in there and wait out this rough stretch. History can repeat itself, so just have some faith, Bruce will come around.
