Evan Longoria Is Even Better Than We Think He Is

Evan Longoria is a former Rookie of the Year, a three time All Star, a two time Gold Glove Award winner, and a three time Top 10 MVP finisher. On top of all that, though, he’s under rated.

The David Price Drama Now Features Evan Longoria Too?

Rays must show offensive momentum doesn't end with another win over Astros

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He has lived baseball long enough to form perspective, so Evan Longoria struck an appropriate tone after the Tampa Bay Rays' offense, suddenly hot after a deep freeze for weeks, turned up toasty results again.
