This is what a Franchise Player looks like folks

Now that it’s been made official, I just want to say that major props go out to the Reds for the Jay Bruce deal. They just signed a young guy who is going to have the chance to be the greatest Reds player of this era. They went out and did something like a winning franchise is supposed to do it. Like a championship organization does it.

Over the life of the contract, He’s going to have the chance to break a lot of Reds records and be part of a lot of big victories and special nights in the Queen City. He’s honestly the perfect player for this city and this fan base. As long as he stays healthy, good things are going to go on for what is seemingly forever. Or at least forever in the sports world.

Read more about why Bruce wanted to sign this deal with the Reds. Walt Jocketty says that “Jay Bruce is the perfect example of how the Reds want to build their organization.”

I couldn’t have put it any better, so there’s no sense in trying any longer.
