It's all about money. Jason Bartlett would be making more money the next couple of years. The Rays would rather take a chance on Reid Brignac, cheaper option.. I would have much rather seen Upton traded.. JB has been a good player and has played with heart.

Well, with the mass exodus of Rays players that cost money it is easy to understand shipping JB. We only had him for one more year and that was under arbitration. He would have cost us probably 5M, and we need that money to build a bullpen. We already have Reid to fill that spot, and to replace BJ we would have had maybe Perez, who can't hit, or go to the FA market and spend money. What the Rays need this year to contend is some breakout/career years from BJ, Reid, Dan Johnson and consistent production from the catcher spot. In addition to this with 18 games against CC and Ellsbury we gonna have to work on holding or throwing out runners!
