They Call Me Bruce

The box score tells the story.  For Jay Bruce, night in and night out, the box score has been telling the same story.  But does it tell the whole story?  Can Jay Bruce play Centerfield in the Majors?  Can Jay Bruce hit left handed pitching?  When will Jay Bruce get the chance?

Chase Headley: Fantasy Baseball profile

Tagged:  •  

There is a lot of speculation about this young kid Chase Headley of the San Diego Padres.  He's a third baseman, although I'm not quite sure he is going to be able to live up to Braun type numbers.  Braun came out last year and basically set the world on fire, but if you had studied his Minor League numbers, you could see that he was a stud...belting 15 HR in 2006 in just 59 games, and then 10 HRs in just 34 games in 2007.  Basically, he is an animal.  However, I'm not seeing the same type of numbers for Headley, despite the fact he is considered one of the top prospects out there.  Let's look at Headley's numbers...
