The Rays have released Burt Reynolds. Sad, sad, sad. No really, they did. Reynolds was an outfield prospect that only reached single-A in three seasons. In 164 career games, he hit .248 with 10 home runs and 33 stolen bases.
Damn. We had all sorts of Cannonball Run references just waiting for Reynolds to hit the big time.
