BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please, please, please tell me that the Rays will remove Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and possibly Sean Rodriguez for better Utility IFers.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Is Geoff Blum still available? And on that note, I must take my leave. (Geoff Young)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Professor - I know the minor league SS ranks are a bit thin, but what about the guys who have already been promoted? Who out of this group do you like to have the best MLB career - Starlin Castro, Elvis Andrus, Alcides Escobar or Reid Brignac?
(bretsayre from nj)
Best career: Overall, I'll say Andrus. I don't think Castro stays at SS or he would be my choice. (Jason Parks)
2010-11-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)DO you see Matt Garza and or Jason Bartlett on the Rays opening day roster?
(Brian from Florida)
Garza, yes. Bartlett, no. I think the latter gets dealt to make room for Reid Brignac, and that Shields will be the odd man out in the rotation. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I being punished or something? My condo floods and makes me miss a flight and next thing I know I go from the everyday 2b to chopped liver over the last 2 weeks.
(Sean-Rod from St Pete)
Between you, Reid Brignac, Jason Bartlett and Ben Zobrist, the Rays certainly have a lot of middle infield options to sort through, and a lot of ways Joe Maddon can try to match them up. So long as you're still on the roster, it's pretty likely your turn will come, though you may be the low man on the totem pole given how much organizational love there is for the other three. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)wher do you see sean rodriguez fitting in tampa?
(mjk415 from elmhurst,ill)
The Rays seem to be bursting at the seams with talent right now. Joe Maddon has some interesting options when it comes to where Ben Zobrist plays, and who that leaves in the mix. If Zobrist is a second baseman, Rodriguez and Reid Brignac probably compete for the final utility spot and the Matt Joyce/Gabe Kapler platoon goes off as planned. If Zobrist is a right fielder, Rodriguez has a shot at winning the second base job.

The fact that he can play the outfield as well as the other infield positions certainly works in his favor if he goes the utility route.

Oh, and an aside to a reader whom I'll leave unidentified: the surest way for me to ignore any question you ever ask in a chat until the end of time is to complain about the pace of things in my chat. I'm not Keith Law firing off two-syllable answers, though I'll gladly give you one: GET BENT. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Reid Brignac -- impact shortstop, ever?
(JB from NY)
Impact? I doubt it. Pretty darn good? I can see it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Rays do, Matt Joyce/Sean Rodriguez/Reid Brignac all have spent more than enough time in AAA and really have nothing to prove. Do the Rays assume that Jason Bartlett's 2009 is nothing more than a "fluke" and shouldn't be expect from here on out?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I assume you think that Zobrist will be a 2B, Jake? I'm loathe to offer the Rays any advice, but like the Angels a couple years back, they're going to need to turn minor league talent into major league talent via trade. There's a point where "best available" stops being so good on a talent level, especially with a real issue of payroll and bullpen. (Will Carroll)
2009-04-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the Rays presently working to restrict the innings pitched of Price, Davis, and Hellickson, and all expected to be major league ready by 2010, which of these can be expected to play for the Rays in 2010. Which will be moved? Any chance that any present starters from the Rays will be moved in order to make room for multiple pitchers? Do the Rays upgrade at SS? Catcher? Or by getting a closer. Seems that their team only lacks a stud closer as Navarro and Bartlett are perfect role players.
(aclaykearney from St. Pete, FL)
I was bowled over by the idea Joe Sheehan floated last week about trading Scott Kazmir, but it makes a good deal of sense, and I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the Rays front office is already one step ahead of that curve, and if it's that trio plus Shields and Garza as their front five in '10.

As to where else they upgrade, the middle infield seems like the place to start, especially if you're like me, unwilling to buy into Reid Brignac even as a bridge to Tim Beckham. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your outlook for Desmond Jennings and Reid Brignac? And say hey to Margaret
(jnewfry from Chicago)
I'm willing to give Jennings a bit of a mulligan for 08 due to the injuries, and while the numbers don't overwhelm, some scouts who saw him in the Arizona Fall League said his tools stuck out like a sore thumb, so I'm still very high on him. Brignac is just weird at this point for me. The bat has not come with him at the upper levels, but at the same time, he's gone from a guy that some wondered would be able to stay at short, to a guy that gets really good defensive reviews. So now he's a plus defender with power but low on-base skills? Khalil Greene? (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you feel the Rays did the right thing by not doing a deal and sticking to their guns of not trading one of their top prospects?
(Tommy from OutPerSwing)
I'd have been inclined to move somebody, since not every solid prospect in their system is going to find a home in the Rays' big-league lineup or rotation, such is their embarrassment of riches. IANOPG (I Am Not Our Prospect Guy) but to me there was enough luster lost off of both Jeff Niemann and Reid Brignac to make that reported deal for a year and two months of Jason Bay to make sense. Now, I wouldn't have shelled out that for a Raul Ibañez, but I'd have like to see them take a stronger shot at upgrading.

This certainly leaves them open to second-guessing if they wind up missing the playoffs, but I've got a pretty strong hunch this won't be their only opportunity. The window is just opening on their future of being a force. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-02-25 12:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of years do you see Reid Brignac, Clayton Kershaw and Adam Jones having? Do you see any of them potentially becoming busts?
(Dusty from Not Chicago)
I just hope that Jones plays everyday for the Orioles, and if he does, I think what I envisioned and what PECOTA sees are right in line. Kershaw should start in Double-A and could be a really interesting bullpen option at the end of the year as they look to integrate him in with the big club. I would like Brignac best if he went back to Double-A, but I think he gets the whole year in the minors and hits well. He's probably the one with the most 'bust potential', if you will. (Bryan Smith)
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Pecota have any insight into Reid Brignac? He seems to have stumped everyone else on what he is and what he'll be.
(userlock from NC)
Tampa was really happy with how his defense progressed last year -- he now looks like a real shortstop -- and the bat didn't show the improvement you'd like but a lot of that can be explained by his having to transition from the Cali League to the Southern. The PECOTA comp I'm find of for him at this point is Kelly Johnson. (Nate Silver)

2008-10-10 13:30:00Friday LCS"jason (tampa): brignac for street offseason deal...fair?"

I'm not the world's biggest Reid Brignac fan, but why do the Rays, who have Bradford signed at a bargain deal, need to trade a good prospect for a sidearming RH-getter?

This, by the way, is the interesting challenge for the Rays--where do you improve? How do you leverage your talent depth to continue making the 25-man roster better? (Joe Sheehan)
