    Jay Bruce? Oh, no!

    From Rotoworld.com:


    "Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM reports that the White Sox "may now be focused on" Carlos Gonzalez and Jay Bruce in their pursuit of left-handed power.The report adds that CarGo's contract and the Rockies' asking price "is the holdup right now" and that Bruce "might be more practical." Levine was told by one general manager who had talks with the Rockies about Gonzalez that they asked for "my top two minor league players, a major league player and to absorb most of the contract." Bruce, meanwhile, was nearly dealt to the Blue Jays last week in a three-team trade before the deal fell apart because of a physical issue involving a prospect. He would come significantly cheaper than CarGo, but of course isn't nearly as good of a player."

    Jay Bruce is an "Adam Dunn lite"... affraid

    CarGo YES! ----- Bruce NO!

    Bruce is one of those guys who started declining at age 26.  Don't think he's done or useless but his age 27-28 lines aren't very impressive.  Depends on what the Sox have to give up.  Not sure Sox have any prospects left that other clubs would want.
