Son Of A Bitch, He Stole My Line

Rob Neyer took the words right out of my mouth this morning on his blog:

"Yesterday in the Reds' 18-inning loss, Corey Patterson went 0-for-8, his slash stats dropping to .201/.242/.354. Mind you, we're talking about their leadoff man who's earning $3 million this season. Meanwhile, Louisville Bats center fielder Jay Bruce, widely considered the No. 1 prospect in the minor leagues this spring, is currently batting .364/.393/.630. Has there ever been a more obvious call-up in the history of the sport?"
