Hard to believe that the Tampa Bay Rays are still hovering at the top of the AL East. With   a real lack of Superstar leadership offensively and defensively, the young Rays continue to make plays, score runs, and beat the odds to still be legitimate contenders in what is arguably the American League’s toughest division. Biggest loss so far is Evan Longoria. Longo has had hamstring issues in the past, but this one seems to be the worst. I’m sure that it hasn’t help the situation any that he is spending his off field time with Playboy Playmate Jaimee Edmondson. I guess if I was a young multi-millionaire sports superstar I may get enticed into that lifestyle. But for Evan, this hamstring problem is becoming a habit and a pure indicator that his illustrious career may not last as long as many of the big names that have played the game before him. In other words, he better get focused on the short time he has left to make his living.  (follow Evan Longoria on Twitter @Evan3Longoria) Next...
