Trade Proposition: Bryan Anderson for Reid Brignac

Would you do this trade?  Would the Rays do this trade?

C Bryan Anderson (DOB: 12/16/86)
6'0, 190 lb, Bats: L Throws: R

2006 (High A)
381 AB, .302 AVG, 42 BB, 66 K, .417 SLG, .794 OPS
2007 (AA)
389 AB, .298 AVG, 32 BB, 77 K, .388 SLG, .738 OPS

Anderson played in the Future's Game (and for those that haven't seen him before, he looked sharp behind the plate.)  Obviously, he is expendable.

SS Reid Brignac (DOB: 1/16/86)
6'3, 170 lb, Bats: L Throws R

2006 (High A)
411 AB, .300 AVG, 35 BB, 82 K, .560 SLG, .944 OPS
2007 (AA)
527 AB, .260 AVG, 55 BB, 94 K, .433 SLG, .761 OPS

As you can see, Brignac dropped off considerable in 2007.  The Rays only hole prospect-wise is at catcher, and everyone anticipates them to take Pedro Alvarez (a 3B) first overall in the 08 draft.  If Alvarez was groomed to be their third baseman, and Evan Longoria moved over to shortstop, Brignac would be the odd man out.  

Does this trade make sense?
