Throwing it around

Big thursday here on the blog as we celebrate Jay Bruce Day. Reds are a game in first place, that feels damn good. I wish my fantasy team was hitting. Guys like Mauer, Lind, Justin Upton, Prince, Bruce, are yet to get truly hot. If that ever happens I would win my league for the second year running.
