The Louisville Courier Journal had an article on Jay Bruce run in today’s paper. There are lots of good quotes there from Jay on his plans for spring training as well as how he adapted to things last year as he moved up three levels while maintaining his production. Ryan Freel seems like like what he saw in Bruce:

“This kid could probably start right now and play,” Freel said. “He’s one of a kind … and he’s going to be a treat to watch on the field.”

Anyways, give the article a read, its pretty good. also has up two nice things on our prospects. First is an interview with Jay Bruce about the Rookie Development Program. Second is an article on the ‘Big 4′ prospects (Bailey, Bruce, Cueto and Votto) and how they could emerge onto the scene next year and give the Reds a push toward their goal of making the playoffs.
