Just when everyone was starting to forget...

It's unfortunate that he was so mismanaged when he was younger. Doesn't look like he will ever reach his full potential.

You sure about that? 8-o

Looks to me like he's found his level.

He was the third overall pick, Behind Joe Mauer and Mark Prior. 8-o

it's funny(or sad, if you are a D-Rays fan) to read the analysis back then.

Brought to you by John Sickels

on Brazelton

There was pre-draft speculation that the D-Rays would select a "cheaper" player than Brazelton, but in the end they went for talent rather than just signability. Brazelton has as much physical talent as Prior, but isn't quite as polished. He throws 94-96 mph, usually throws strikes, and has a very good changeup. His breaking pitch is somewhere between a curve and a slider, and is the main thing he needs to improve right now. Brazelton won't arrive as quickly as Prior, but has a terrific ceiling and gives the D-Rays system an instant boost.

Tex was a Boras agent and never would of signed with the Rays, he told them that he didn't want to go there. As for Floyd, well it's not like he turned out to be much better at all so far, and Braz was closer to being ready. The fact is that there are dozens of Top 5 picks that end up sucking, not just Brazelton.

Anyways Braz had troubles for some pretty obvious reasons. He never got comfortable with a delivery and also lost velocity of his FB, his make up was awful, and his command never showed up.

Yet another good prospect that went down the tube in the Rays organization. Whatever happened to Delvin James?

in no way was I saying that Teix would become a D-Ray, but as to Floyd, he does have age at his side.

He is younger, but that was a factor in the rays not taking him ... they wanted someone closer. Even with age on his side Floyd has yet to show he can pitch in AAA, let alone the majors.

ok, our old friend Brazelton is at it again :-D

http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/app/ ... &fext=.jsp

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Pacific Coast League today named Portland pitcher Dewon Brazelton its "Pitcher of the Week" for the span inclusive of July 24-30.
During the week, Brazelton posted a 2-0 record with a 0.73 ERA (1 ER, 12 1/3 IP) in two starts. The right-hander worked 5 1/3 scoreless innings and allowed four hits for a victory against Oklahoma on July 25. In his second start, Brazelton gave up one run on four hits over seven innings July 30 against New Orleans for his third win of the season.

Over his last five starts, Brazelton is 3-0 with a 0.36 ERA (1 ER, 25 1/3 IP), working 19 2/3 straight scoreless innings recently before allowing a second-inning run in Sunday's victory over the Zephyrs.

Brazelton, who is 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA in 11 appearances (10 starts) with the Beavers this season, is the first Portland pitcher to garner the award in 2006, and the first since Chris Oxspring, who was so honored, Aug. 8-14, 2005.

The PCL named Sacramento's D'Angelo Jimenez its Player of the Week on Monday. Jimenez batted .542 (13-for-24) in six games.
