Brignac
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. LAUREN ANDERSON PICTURES
