Evan Longoria bundled up before stepping out into the cold, zipping his bright blue winter jacket all the way up, putting on his scarf and pulling his gray stocking cap tight over his ears. This wasn't exactly baseball weather. The Tampa Bay Rays third baseman spent Saturday hanging out with fellow Red Bull athletes and taking in the dizzying sights and loud sounds of the Winter X Games. For a change, Longoria was just a fan - gushing over meeting Mark McMorris, who won the snowboard slopestyle competition. And for once he didn't draw a crowd, because nobody really knew who he was. He wasn't the All-Star who signed a lucrative new contract in the offseason. No, he was simply that guy shivering like everyone else.

With Rays, not as much pressure on Wil Myers

TAMPA, Fla. This dance has only begun. It will be more tango than waltz, more salsa than slow step. It will be a tease that tickles the imagination, seducing hearts and minds of seamheads on both sides of the bay. Lets be frank: Its not a matter of if. Its a question of the juicy when.
