Jay Bruce clarifies report he did not want to be traded to Mets - NY Daily News

“The Reds came to me very early in the process and asked me where I wanted to go and I gave them three places I wanted to go and New York wasn’t one of them.

“But that has nothing to do with the Mets or New York or anything like that. I had personal ties with places I wanted to go. It ended up not working out.”

What places? “San Francisco, Texas and L.A.,” Bruce said.

So is he upset to be a Met? “Absolutely not. I got a chance to come play in a playoff race and I’m so happy to be here. Things get misconstrued. Yes, New York was not on my list initially, that’s really all there is to it. Definitely wasn’t as comfortable with New York as I was the other places, but I’m happy to be here and we’re doing exactly what I hoped to do when I got here.”

Report: Before trade to the Mets, Jay Bruce asked to be sent ‘anywhere but New York’ | For The Win

Fatherhood has not hurt Bruce. He isn’t losing sleep or wasting energy changing diapers. Actually, he was still in Cincinnati when he became a father and was having a great year. Then they traded him to New York and his numbers declined in a New York minute. I was told when he knew he would be traded he went to the Reds and asked them to trade him anywhere but to New York. Guess they didn’t hear him right and thought he said, “Please trade me to New York.”

Heyman - Bruce Would ‘Very Likely’ Waive NTC For Indians

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jay Bruce has the Cleveland Indians listed as one of eight teams on his no-trade clause, but according to a friend of Bruce, he only added the Indians as the eighth team as a late replacement for the Blue Jays after hearing Toronto was interested (he apparently liked the idea of going to the Jays).

The friend says Bruce has no negative feelings toward Cleveland or the Indians and would be very likely accept a deal there.
