Jay Bruce has hit in 12 straight games for the second time this season, and a 12-game hitting streak is the most games any rookie has hit in all season. You know what that means? It means he’s the best rookie on the planet, and he should have been up here all year compiling hits. We like compilation. We like packing the stat sheet. Bruce is the only guy on the Reds who does that shit. We like Bruce.
We’re a bit superstitious so we’ve even begun growing a Jay Bruce Hitting Streak Beard. What? You think that is gay? Eat shit. It’s working okay? And you know what else, it’s the first time we’ve ever had facial hair in our life, so we might even keep it IF he ever stops hitting. Pictures to follow.
