Jay Bruce melts down on Twitter about fans, hitting woes

It's no secret to Reds fans that Jay Bruce has been struggling at the plate lately. And it appears as if those struggles have caused the Reds outfielder to reach a breaking point on Twitter.

The 26-year-old took to the social media site Tuesday night to vent about the heat he has been taking from fans this year. Here is the gist of what he had to say...

Bruce entered play on Wednesday as the league leader in strike outs with 40. But outside of his high strike out rate, and the fact that he has only hit one home run through 115 at-bats, Bruce is still sporting numbers close to his career averages. His current average of .252 and on-base percentage of .312 isn't too far off from the norm.

However, Bruce seems to be hearing it from Cincinnati fans anyway.
