Shhh! There's a Milestone Nearby!

'Hug me, Jay Bruce'We are so on the Jay Bruce bandwagon.

Bruce Almighty, The Boss, The Deal, The Beaumont Bruiser, The Cincinnati Bowtie, The Bruise, call him what you like. This kid is ridiculous right now.

The rookie sensation smashed another longball Monday, an opposite-field liner just clearing the left-field wall in the fourth inning of the Cincinnati Reds' 5-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

In his first 7 big league games, the 21-year-old center fielder is batting .577 (15-for-25) with three homers, seven RBIs and 2 stolen bags.

Will it last? No. Sadly, nothing this good lasts forever. Let's enjoy it while we can, at least until Ken Griffey Jr. re-enters the limelight with career home run #600.

Phenoms are so exciting. Has an rookie ever impacted his team this much, this quickly?
