Jay Bruce made his major league debut last night. Quick breakdown of what he did is as follows:
3 - 3, 2 singles, a double, 2 walks, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, and a stolen base
While the Reds sent Hatteberg packing (Votto seems to have established himself well enough to lay claim to the first base job), it was Corey Patterson who was not in the lineup. Now for as much hemming and hawing from Reds management as to why Bruce was still murdering the ball in AAA (Griffey), the real problem--as I had stated was Corey Patterson--found himself on the bench last night, and apparently got booed by the fans in Cincy. Go figure.
Welcome to the Bigs, Jay. We're (read: I'm) glad to have you.
