"The Deal" from
upcoming record (to be released in April 2010) is produced by
and will be Jay Bruce's walk-up song this season at GABP. Using
"I'm On A Boat" last year, "The Deal" will without doubt be an

This will be Bruce's third major league season and so far he's had mixed
results. Showing signs of greatness here and signs of impatience there,
Bruce's performance this season is essential to the Reds'.
Last season, on July 11, Jay Bruce fractured his wrist making a diving catch
during the first inning of a game against the New York Mets. Bruce returned
to the Reds two months later. After a dismal season prior to his injury, he
finished hitting .375 in his last twelve games. Undeterred by his promising
conclusion last year, Bruce described his 2009 season as "embarrassing".
Hopefully, Bruce's 2010 approach at the plate will be distant from Louie
The Reds lost their sixth straight game of the spring to the Padres on
Tuesday by a final score of 7-5. Reds' Opening Day starter Aaron Harang
pitched 4 2/3 innings allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits while
striking out six. It was Harang's final start of the spring. Both teams
committed three errors each.
