I like Longoria. He has a better supporting cast in Tampa which will lessen the pressure on him and also help keep runners on base, leading to better pitches to hit.

I agree. I like Tampa's lineup better, especially with Pena back. I think he has a lot more RBI opps than the other 2 guys.

Longoria>>Bruce>=Votto would be my rankings as well.
I think Longoria in particular has shown his power translates quickly to the major leagues. But as others have noted in previous threads his average could wind up being very suspect as the season progresses- .260-15 wouldn't be a big surprise to me in the second half.

Longoria > Votto > Bruce

Bruce was K'ing at an alarming rate at AAA and it seems that he is really exposed right now.
