No Rays fan should seriously expect Longoria to equal what Braun did in 07. It is pretty much unheard of for a rookie to come in and have that type of offensive numbers from the get go. I will be perfectly happy with Longoria having a Gordon type of rookie season. I do think he will be a bit better though mainly due to having Upton and Crawford around him in the lineup. My main concern for this year regarding Longoria is for him to get comfortable in the big leagues and to be confident enough to produce as the season goes along. Whether he starts in the minors or the majors is not really that big of a deal on what his stats look like, so my opinion is if he earns it in spring training, let him have the job 100% starting in April.
