word has it that cincinnati red stud in waiting jay bruce will be called up just before tonight's game. looks like corey patterson will either be cut or sent down. word also has it this decision was made before patterson went zip for 8 during sunday's marathon game in san diego.

alright, all 5 of you reds fans (myself included) (5 might be generous), does the bruce meister help turn things around? or is he just getting us interested for nothing?

It's about dang time. They should have never hired Patterson in the first place. They should have kept Josh Hamilton.

yes, but then we wouldn't have edinson volquez! i admit josh has been playing lights out baseball for the rangers. and i hope he continues to remain healthy and sober!

vince, unfortunately someone already nabbed bruce in my fantasy league. so if you got him, good on you!!

Looks like Patterson stays & Hatteburg is released. Patterson is one of Dusty's boys, so he stays.

I can't recall a AAA player who was called up with as much media attention in recent memory than Bruce. With that said, going 3-3, with two RBIs, two runs, two walks, and a stolen base is quite impressive and he is living up to the hype so far.....

They have actually played better against teams with a .500 record than those that don't.
