Bruce's down; will Votto follow?
March, 21, 2008
Oh yes, they did: The Reds have sent super-prospect Jay Bruce to the minors. But that might not be the worst of it, as Joey Votto's poor spring probably leaves him behind Scott Hatteberg on the depth chart. From a BTF comments page: Couldn't have said it better myself. It doesn't matter much if the Rays send Evan Longoria down, because they're not a playoff team either way. But the Reds maybe have sort of a legitimate shot ... if Bruce and Votto combine for 1,000 or more plate appearances (and yes, I pulled that figure from thin air).
