    Reid Brignac

    DFA'd by the Rays today. Man what a fall from grace. I'd take a flyer on him and hope he could pull a Brandon Phillips post-hype resurrection.

    Maybe we can trade Todd Redmond for him.

    Re: Reid Brignac

    He had a fantastic year in 2006 as a 20 year old in high A and spent the next 4 years in the top 100. His 2010 season in Tampa was about what you'd expect from him after his decline leading up to that. Is he a good defender? Send him to Houston. See what he's got.

    He's a very good defender, I'd take him in a second if my team had a roster spot to spare for a defensive replacement type SS.

    This guy was something of a darling here a few years ago. Reds SS of the future talk, just like with Brandon Wood. SS = tough position to fill.

    I remember wanting Brignac, Brandon Wood, and Chris Nelson.

    Ugh.

    Re: Reid Brignac

    I wonder if us folks at Redzone have figured out not to go all gaga over the "Next Great Thing" players like Brignac.

    Nah, probably not.

    Chris Nelson may be turning into a decent player -- but not at SS.

    This guy sounds like a drink.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I remember hoping the Reds would take a flyer on guys like this. Now we don't need to. So much better .
