Bartlett activated; Reid Brignac sent down

Joe Dillon has been somewhat hot during his brief stay with the team, but there is no reason to keep him now that Pat Burrell is back. Dillon is obviously out of options, so the only move the Rays could make would be designating him for assignment, but he has no real worth anymore, so losing him to waivers would not be that big of a deal. He doesn't play the field, so he is basically Burrell's back-up right-handed DH. Is that really worth taking up a spot on the active roster?

Brignac was just sent down, according to The Heater Blog of the St. Pete Times, and I disagree with the move. He has demonstrated he is a steady shortstop, and would be a much better insurance plan at any infield spot than Dillon or even Willy Aybar. He has also started to prove he can handle MLB pitching to a certain degree. Therefore, why not keep Brignac up with the big club? Is this another oen of those deals where the Front Office wants a young player to play every day so they send him to AAA?

At this point, I don't think that's what Reid needs, and I don't think Joe Dillon is what the Rays need.
