Jay Bruce was scratched two hours before game time because of a sore right hand. He was hit on the hand by Yovani Gallardo on Monday at Milwaukee and it’s still swollen. Bruce went for X-rays and we’re awaiting word. Apparently he might have tweaked the hand on a check swing last night. He told the Reds he had been pain free the prior three days.

The curse never fails. Never ever ever fails. We suck. Fuck. This will end in a DL stint that lingers all fucking season.

Update (cue angels singing): Bruce is ok. X-rays negative. Feel like our team dodged a bullet.
