The St. Petersburg Times reports that the Rays have signed Evan Longoria to a long-term deal.
It only took six games and 20 at-bats. The team is expected to announce the signing at a 1 p.m. press conference. Longoria wasn't eligible for free agency until 2014, and the contract likely takes him through then with a club option on his first year or two of free agency. He projects to be one of the league's better third basemen, and the deal should protect the Rays against rapidly inflating salaries come arbitration time.
now i dont think i can bring myself to trade him in my 5 player keeper league if he is thought of this highly by the rays
