Out of absolutely NOWHERE: Jay Bruce is the Reds new first baseman.
I think I know Reds baseball and specifically Jay Bruce about as well as anyone out there. If they played the game for one hundred years I never could have predicted this. This is awesome!
It's the first time Jay Bruce has played anywhere other than Right Field since August 10, 2008 when he started in Center Field. #Reds

We already have a lunch bet with our boy Nick that Jay Bruce gets through tonight without an error. If he moves to another position at any point during the game the bet is off. If he does not commit an error, free Piada!
