Minor matters, Bruce quote
"I just have to let my play on the field do the talking," Jay Bruce told the Louisville Corier-Journal. "It's not going to do any good to sit here and talk about it and wonder. You start wondering, you get your mind off the game and that can't be good."
I'd expect no less from Bruce. He's a very bright kid nad he's not going to make waves. But it's got to be killing him not to be here. The Reds could use him tonight. He's hitting .383 off lefties. Ken Griffey Jr. is hitting .158; Adam Dunn .152.
