We’ve discussed Bronson Arroyo and Scott Rolen and Jonny Gomes. Now let’s discuss a player who is on the rise, rather than one in a decline.

Jay Bruce. In 2010, Bruce started out brilliantly, played so poorly for a while that some mouth-breathers suggested he be sent to AAA, then returned from injury to excite everyone with his hitting. Defensively, he was the most deserving Gold Glove winner on the Reds roster, in my opinion. Best defensive right fielder in baseball.

What is the Nation’s collective wisdom regarding Jay? Is he overrated, underrated, or just rated? What is his future with the Reds, and what should his future be?
