There is hope for all of you scrappy baseball players out there who were never tempted to PED and do baseball the right way. New Phillies infielder (signed to a minor league deal) Reid Brignac is 6’3″ and 190 pounds. He could have juiced until he was 6’3″ and 240 pounds, hit 38 dongs, drive in 101 and sign a 6-year, $48 million (guaranteed) contract.
Instead, Brignac has 11 career MLB home runs in six years and is now engaged to Lauren Anderson, Playboy’s Miss July 2002. According to Anderson’s Facebook account, Brignac popped the question back on October 10, but just got around to making it Facebook official.
Normally this wouldn’t make headlines around here. Anderson is way past her Playboy days and has a son with Brignac. But this isn’t your normal athlete-Playboy relationship. We’re talking about a guy who has only made $2,219,100 during his career getting the Playmate.
This is a victory to all of you baseball players out there who think a Playmate is unattainable. Are you on a 40-man roster? Get on Twitter and find yourself a Playmate who is willing to take a risk on a guy making the league minimum.
