The Tampa Bay Rays are cleaning up this offseason. We don’t mean that the team’s roster has improved significantly. Tampa rarely makes any big splashes during the offseason but always remains in contention, so that isn’t a concern. As far as the players’ social lives are concerned, however, the Rays are dominating the league. Reid Brignac’s girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Lauren Anderson, is reportedly pregnant.
As The Big Lead pointed out, the couple has a baby registry online here if you’re interested in surprising them with a gift. The discovery that Brignac and Anderson are pregnant comes just days after third baseman Evan Longoria confirmed that he is dating former Playmate Jaime Edmondson. Unfortunately for Derek Jeter, A-Rod has lousy taste in women. That leaves Brignac and Longoria as the kings of the left side of the infield in the dating world.
When thieves robbed the home that David Price, Evan Longoria, and Reid Brignac rent on Saturday, they made off with just about everything you would expect. We have no idea how much evidence was left behind or if police will catch the men who broke into their Bradenton home, but from the look of it the process was well-planned.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, the house was broken into in the middle of the day when all three men were at a game next door at Charlotte Sports Park. One would have to assume the culprits knew exactly whose home they were robbing, or they probably would not have attempted it in broad daylight. As of now, they must be satisfied with the results.
The thieves made off with a 60-inch flat screen TV, three iPads, two Xbox systems, headphones, a laptop, and several expensive watches. Price told reporters that his estimated loss alone was around $50,000. Police are exploring the idea that the crime was committed by some people who stopped at the house earlier in the week to ask if it would be available to rent soon.
“The good thing was that nobody was there and nobody got hurt and everything is material that we can replace,” Brignac said. “It’s very unfortunate that people would stoop that low. That’s what we get for being trusting, kind people. These random people came up and we could have been like, ‘No, y’all get out of here.’ “
The Tampa Bay Rays clinched a postseason berth last night and decided to do what any athlete would do when they’re happy about something — the “Dougie Dance.” Braylon Edwards Dougied on Darius Butler after he caught a touchdown pass against the Patriots and did it again on Sunday night against the Dolphins. So what if he was benched for the first quarter of the game because he was arrested for a DUI? The Dougie can’t be controlled.
To this point, I’ve never been truly uncomfortable watching someone do the Dougie. That just changed. Check out the Reid Brignac Dougie video, courtesy of The Big Lead via TampaBay.com:
