Bradford traded to Tampa Bay for player to be named later

Recommended Posts

PTBNL = Brignac? Fingers Crossed!

If its a waiver dodge, will they have to wait until the season is over?

Is Brignac on the Rays' 40-man roster? If not, he wouldn't have to pass through waivers. I think getting him would be doubtful anyway.

Edit: He is indeed on the 40-man roster, so it is possible.

We just cleared $3.5 million off our payroll for next year. With the additions of ground ball guys like Jim Johnson and Randor Bierd, who can both actually get left-handers out as well (although Bierd has struggled this year in the bigs with lefties), Bradford had become a little redundant. Besides, Bradford had become almost strictly a right-handed specialist and I'm not sure anyone wants him in a tight situation anymore since even right-handers have become to hit him a little more this year.

Highly doubtful that this is Brignac coming back, that just doesn't make sense for a variety of reasons, but the main one being Bradford isn't nearly worth him.

Gomes makes some sense though.

Bradford really was only worth about a organizational 15-20 guy, so there are lots of guys that this would be a decent move for.

Totally agree...However, i would think AM wouldn't have dumped him just for salary reasons...I would think he got something useful in return.

The PTBNL usually means they have a list of players they can choose from. Gomes could be one, I suppose.

Nice to see that MacPhail is not against trading within the division.

Parts of the division at least... :P

Does anyone care to speculate if it's a top 15 player on the Rays?

I'd be surprised if anyone more than a Scott Moore-type prospect. This has salary dump written all over it. Now if someone would just claim Jamie Walker we'd be gold. :D

Agreed...and he wouldn't like the fanbase viewing this as simply a salary dump. I think there's got to be more to this, hopefully something intriguing.
