Evan Longoria becomes Rays’ leader in career RBIs

Credit: Jeff Roberson/AP One reason the Tampa Bay Rays are still trying to recover from a 24-42 start is a career-worst season from star third baseman Evan Longoria. Coming into the two-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals, Longoria was hitting .262 with 11 home runs and a shocking .394 slugging percentage. Yet in the ninth inning at Busch Stadium, Longoria homered to left field...

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. While Longoria is a a three time All Star, he hasn’t actually made the team since 2010, despite two seasons with WARs greater than 6.6 and two Top 10 MVP finishes. I’m not exactly sure why...

The David Price Drama Now Features Evan Longoria Too?

Sunday Night baseball is the MLB’s big weekly national showcase. ESPN cherry picks the best series each weekend and puts their considerable production weight (i.e. $$$) behind making a marquee TV show – the bump into a commercial break around the 4th inning featuring Pappy’s was a personal favorite last night. So even though the Dodgers vs Cardinals game selection was made...

Rays maintain momentum, top Twins

It was the first game after the All-Star break, a second Opening Day of sorts, but for the Rays it was a pretty big game. And that made their 6-2 victory against the Twins a pretty big one. The Rays, hoping to chase down either the first-place Orioles or the Mariners, who hold the second AL wild-card spot, kept the momentum going despite the four days off for the All-Star break...

Brittany Svendgard, the Better Half of the Joyce “Clan”

The Tampa Bay Rays may be struggling this year, but they have top-notch WAGS. We previously took a look at Jaime Edmondson, who is attached to Rays’ third baseman Evan Longoria. It’s high time to check in on Brittany Svendgard, who just so happens to represtent WAG status to a T. She’s Matt Joyce’s girlfriend, in case you didn’t notice.  Okay. Maybe we will have to do...

Ex-MLBer implies David Price and Evan Longoria are potheads

Former MLB pitcher turned broadcaster/writer Dirk Hayhurst wrote a column about the popularity of marijuana throughout MLB and, in the article, he implied there are several potheads on the Tampa Bay Rays.

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. The three-time All-Star third baseman was a quicker-than-normal arrival to his locker after the Rays' 5-2 victory over the Houston Astros on...

Woes continue for the Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays’ 2014 season is beginning to look as though it is never going to turn around. Fans and players have hoped that the Rays would figure it out eventually, but it appears that they may be in a hole too deep to dig out of. The Rays have gone from being a playoff team to the worst team in baseball in an extremely short amount of time, which has left the team with very...
