we just got a monster trading chip in our upper minors, Reid Brignac. It will be interesting to see how the Front Office handles this as I imagine a flood of GMs would be calling if Brignac is available.

I like Reid but what do the Rays need?
I know a bullpen, but other than that we have depth at starter.
3B is Evan
Aki is in at 2nd
Upton and Crawford have the OF on lock
Pena is here to stay

What would we trade one of our top prospects for?

Needs for the Rays for the 2009 and beyond if Beckham is the real deal and our pick.

Catcher--Navarro might be fine, this year will tell
2nd base--Aki is 29, and we need to see how he is going to hold up defensively.
OF--Power hitting Right fielder, heck we can live with a 260 BA as long as we are getting 35+ homers.
Pitching--We are loaded with pitching, but if 50% of them don't pan out, we could always use a solid arm.
Depth--We are actually limited on our depth right now in the bigs and in the minors. As seen with the Baldelli situation, more depth is always a plus.
