Jay Bruce struggled at the plate in last night’s 2-1 loss to the Cardinals, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. It’s a struggle that has stretched throughout the first month of the season, with Bruce currently hitting .252 and slugging only .339, with just one homer thus far. Evidently, this has spurred numerous “fans” to hound Bruce via his Twitter handle (@JayABruce) about his lack of production at the dish in 2013, as if Bruce wasn’t already aware of these things himself.
Jay Bruce does not like these negative tweets. Around midnight Tuesday evening, the Reds rightfielder responded to the social-media-borne criticism, requesting that all of his haters go out and get a life and/or life coach.
So to sum up: Bruce appreciates all of the tweets, and you all sound like idiots. Though seriously, the man does get points for going with “Haha” over “LOL.” Really, it’s enough with the LOLs.
Fortunately, the youngster has 134 more games this season to turn things around. The rest of you have 134 games left to “get over whatever you have going on in your life.” Win-win.
