Is that how it works!?!? I need to start getting a mailing list together...

He's walking more, he's hitting line drives.
His HR/FB ratio is below his career norm, he's hitting less flyballs than in 2009, but he still managed to hit 21 HR in 452 plate appearances in 2008 with 34.2%FB so the 34.7% FB rate of 2010 should not be anything to worry about.
I bought Bruce. I often fantasize about hanging out with him and talking about the game of baseball. I'm not worried.

Bruce is looking good. The power will comes and the average will keep him in the line-up. I think 30 home runs for this year is a reach at this point ... I'd put him closer to 25.

Yeah, I drafted him expecting 30, but 25 is definitely looking like the best he'll do at this point :/ But who knows, he could go on a streak.
