A reminder that the Mets are literally paying Jay Bruce to do this to them.
Jay Bruce loves hitting homers. #2 on the day gives us a 7-2 lead!
Jay Bruce hits a 2-run HR to give us a 6-0 lead!

A two-homer game for him and the Phillies extend the lead!

Jay Bruce’s inner Bruce Lee is on full display rn
Most HR before the All-Star break, Mets history:
1-t. Pete Alonso, 30 (2019)
1-t. Dave Kingman, 30 (1976)
3. Carlos Beltran, 25 (2006)*
4. Mike Piazza, 24 (2000)
5-t. Jay Bruce, 23 (2017)
5-t. Todd Hundley, 23 (1996)*
*Went on to set/match the Mets' single-season record of 41.
Jay Bruce with another. His fourth home run and 11th RBI against the Mets in the last two weeks.
It's probably safe at this point to add Bruce to the Daniel Murphy Pantheon of Former Mets Who Just Crush the Mets.
The Phillies season hasn’t gone perfectly, but where would this team be without the acquisition of Jay Bruce?
🔥29 RBI https://t.co/x0BdW29xgS
Jay Bruce is the first player in #MLB history (since 1933) to hit 10+ home runs for two different teams prior to the All-Star break. #BruceAlmighty https://t.co/MP4WIiw7aA
Over his last four starts, Aaron Nola has allowed just two earned runs in 29⅔ innings, a 0.61 ERA.
has more on the the Phillies ace, Jay Bruce and Bryce Harper in his observations from Citi Field.
Jay Bruce hit 2 home runs today, his first multi-homer game vs. Mets. Bruce had 4 multi-homer games as a Met. He is one of 4 active players with a multi-homer game for and against the Mets:
Jay Bruce - 14 HR with Mariners, 10 with Phillies - is the first player in MLB history to hit 10+ HR with 2 different teams before the All-Star Break (the All-Star Game started in 1933)
What were the Mariners smoking, giving Jay Bruce to the #Phillies for no good reason? Criticize Klentak if it makes you feel good, but that was a stone-cold steal. #Phillies
Asked Jay Bruce if he thinks #mets are regetting the big trade: “I have no idea, man, no idea. I feel like they probably worked on it for a long time, and decided that was the move they wanted to make. I totally respect that. You have to ask Brodie, I don’t know.” #mets
Jay Bruce's torment of the Mets continues with a two-run homer in the sixth that knocks out Zack Wheeler. Phillies 6, Mets hitless.
omg just saw what jay bruce did to the mets this weekend 😂
Name 2 worst off season additions team (tandems) than Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano? I'm wait... the #Mets were fleeced twice and gave up Jay Bruce.

What a bunch of BS some of you all are spouting. All I saw online was good riddance when Jay Bruce was shipped out. Not one tear was shed. He hits some HRs against the Mets and suddenly everyone is his biggest supporter knew we should've kept him. Y'all are full of shit. #lgm
That’s how I described Jay Bruce’s recent success vs the Mets today.
Jay Bruce Season WAR: 1.4, good for 181th in MLB. Had they kept him, where would he play? Corner outfielders are McNeil and Dom Smith, two terrific players. 1B? Pete Alonso plays there.
What we give up to get Jay Bruce? He is on an expiring contract. Benson or Gonzales is too high
So throw out the whole season & replace the productive guys bcuz they don’t have experience? Seems weird to me - you have to start somewhere w/getting guys experience. all the OF guys will b significant parts of Tribes future. no glaring hole in OF like 2017 w/ Jay Bruce
Jay Bruce Won't let it happen.Frazier is his friend.
