Jay Bruce Isn't Ready For The Big Stage

Javier Valentin is clearly a better baseball player than Jay Bruce. I mean, how else do you explain Valentin's spot on the big league roster, while Bruce is merely a minor leaguer?

I'll say it again: Jay Bruce is a minor leaguer.

This would also be accurate: Jay Bruce is a minor league baseball player who originates from Beaumont, Texas.

Yet another true statement: Jay Bruce is inarguably the best prospect in baseball, and he's wasting his time at AAA Louisville. He's hitting .611 (.611!) over his last ten games, and .366 overall (an International League best). Along with his 9 homers and 8 doubles, Bruce has 5 triples and 7 stolen bases. Offensively, he can do everything. Check that...offensively, he's doing everything.

And, as stated in the previous post, I believe Bruce to be the best player in the Reds organization, big boys included. I'm not talking about potential and projections...I'm talking about right now.

Fact No. 1: The Cincinnati Reds would be appreciably better with Jay Bruce playing every day.

Fact No. 2: Jay Bruce invented sliced bread.

Can they just call this dude up before I start cutting myself?

I had heard of a guy with the last name bruce about 3 or 4 years ago, but i never really put it together. Down here baseball doesnt get any coverage, its all about high school football.
