What are people saying about Jay Bruce after his magnificent debut last night?

A premier premiere, indeed. Nice piece by Bill Koch in the Enquirer, that delves into Bruce’s background with quotes from friends and family. A must-read for this morning.

Justin says that Bruce is the opposite of Corey Patterson.

–Tim at Reds Rocket had the same thought that I did.

–Andrew at Redlegs Rundown says that Jay Bruce mania has arrived.

Bruce said it “was surreal.” Yes, it was.

–Jeff from RR says “Jay is Good!”

–Finally, here is a list of great quotes from various persons about Bruce’s debut. My favorite:

“He’s going to be our superstar for years to come. We’ve got a lot of good young players here and in the minors. It’s great to see Jay here.”

Fun day to be a Reds fan.

  1. Corey Patterson was just optioned to AAA!!

    The Reds today optioned to Class AAA Louisville OF Corey Patterson, selected from Louisville the contract of IF Andy Phillips and transferred to the 60-day disabled list SS Alex Gonzalez.

  2. Dont’ play with me like that Greg. Are you for real? Time to google…

  3. Yay!!! And Phillips helps out with our infield drought as well. Let’s Hairston and Freel do more outfield work. Alright!!! I’m looking forward to the game tonight as well. Post season, here we come!

  4. The only one reporting it so far is the Fay. The 2nd paragraph of my comment was copy/pasted from his blog (sorry, should have linked it, but I can’t go back an edit.)

  5. Phillips was on the fast track in NY. That also answers our 1st base platoon issue. Maybe we can put something together now and get a catcher.

  6. Interesting. I googled “Corey Patterson” and “Optioned”. I received page after page of his career ‘highlights’ with Chicago and Baltimore. Somehow he has spent his whole career being optioned. Amazing.

  7. Also, here’s a good swing analysis of Bruce. Has nothing but positive things to say.
