*Something must be up with up with Jay Bruce, because he is 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer lifetime vs. Braves starter Jair Jurrjens. And Dusty Baker is very big on maximizing matchups whenever he can. When the clubhouse opens, I will see what the word is.

**Update: Bruce is under the weather and having dizzy spells. He is scheduled to see a doctor today.

*Coming off Wednesday’s victory at Pittsburgh, the Reds are trying again for back-to-back wins. That hasn’t happened since the three-game sweep at LA June 13-15.

*Some game time changes ahead: The Aug. 20 game at PIT has been changed from 7:05 p.m. to 4:11 to accommodate the FOX national broadcast…the Sept. 10 at COL is no longer is on the FOX broadcast schedule…that new starting time is TBA.


I hope it’s nothing more serious than that he is being benched for missing the cutoff man (again) in the last game of the Pittsburgh series.

I am sure Dusty just wanted to give him 2 days off in a row, due to the exhausting inning he played in the All Star Game 10 days ago.

1- no reason to trade him

2- Something really must be going on.. physically… maybe mentally.. who knows.

3- get us some details, will ya? Lol

Probably sick but if you mention “trade” in the biz you know you will peak everyone’s interest.
Got you to respond.

Funny how no one is concerned that Rolen is still out, ha.

I hope he feels better. I understand that kind of feeling and there’s not much you can do for it. I put money on vertigo or blood pressure. Just my two cents. Either way, speedy recovery!

Good point Curt.

“Bruce is under the weather and having dizzy spells”? – results from a wild & crazy day off?

who loves to speculate? I hope he gets better…

I would be Dizzy too, if I had to play for Rusty / Dusty
