Yesterday SteveSlow wrote a thread on the accomplishments of Rays young players Sean Rodriguez, Matt Joyce, Reid Brignac and John Jaso . He went on to point out in numbers how they have added to the Rays success this season.
I agreed with him on three of the candidates and as you can guess took exception to Reid Brignac. I do not hate on Brignac, just don't see what others do in him moving forward. Every franchise has a Brignac at either the MLB or AAA level, a middle infielder who can play as a utility or in a match up situation. But that is not why i'm writing this thread.
SteveSlow defended Brignac by pointing out a league average SS has a 658 OPS and Brignac's line reads 261/309/381 ofor a 690 OPS. That is true, but as a SS which i believe is where his fans see him in the future he becomes very Caeser Itsurisesque. Close your eyes for the faint of heart. Brignac's numbers as a SS and which cover one half of his PA are the following 248/298/292 a 590 OPS with 0 HR and 9 RBI
Now i ask you, is this our SS of the future?
