•Jay Bruce was brought up on Tuesday from the Reds Triple-A team in Louisville, and is tearing it up. Bruce is now batting .591 (13-for-22) in six games, with six RBIs, two HRs and two steals. The rookie center fielder hit his first career home run on Saturday night, a walk-off solo shot in the 10th inning to give the Reds an 8-7 win. The hype on this guy is proving to be true, and his tear seems to have energized the Reds as well, who swept Atlanta at home over the weekend.

•Great day at Shea on Saturday afternoon for Brooks' last MLB game in NYC before he heads back to the West Coast and their Triple-A Padres club. SL, Brooks, Rubes, Greg, Eric and I saw the Mets rally in the eighth to beat the Dodgers 3-2. Believe it or not, the Mets are finally starting to look like a decent team.

•In WBSL news, A/T goes down in a tough loss to Black Betty, after putting 8 runs on the board in the top of the ninth to lead by two. Costly errors handed the Betty about 7 runs of their runs. grrrr.
