Daily Fantasy - Evan Longoria vs CC Sabathia

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the Bronx to play a 4 game set with the New York Yankees, and they will not have to face one of Masahiro Tanaka or Michael Pineda.  But tonight it's David Price vs CC Sabathia and that means the Rays bats could come alive!  Sabathia has faced the Rays 14 times in the past 3 seasons, more than any other team.  Over those starts, he is just 3 and 8...

How the Tampa Bay Rays will make the playoffs

Based upon how the Tampa Bay Rays’ roster looks on paper, there appears to be a good chance that they will be playing in October.  However, it has been proven time and time again that the best teams on paper do not always end up performing up to expectations.  Underperformance and injuries are both to be expected over the course of a 162-game season.  The difference between...

Tampa Bay Rays: 3 Up and 3 Down

Tampa Bay Rays: 3 Up and 3 DownThe Tampa Bay Rays had a very successful 2013 season, especially given the fact that they are one of baseball’s lowest budget teams. The Rays finished in second place in the AL East with a record of 92-71, earning one of the two American League Wild Card spots. This would be quite an impressive season for a team in any division, but is especially...

Player Profile #28: Evan Longoria | 3B | TB

Evan Longoria is the king of consistency, but the one area that he’s struggled in is his health. It was all good for 2013 though, as he set career highs with 160 games and 693 PA. With Longoria it’s pretty much “what you see is what you get” as his rate stats have been remarkably consistent. Let’s take a look at his batted ball rates throughout his career why don’t we...

Evan Longoria remains a player of interest at 3B (2014 Third Base Position Primer)

It is Miguel Cabrera‘s position — For 2014 at least — and everyone else is hoping not to get lapped. But, Adrian Beltre, Evan Longoria and David Wright will also be top round selections and offer the offense traditionally associated with the hot corner.

Are missed calls bad for baseball?

As a rule, Mondays suck, but as Mondays go, this is always a good one, as the Red Sox play a frightfully early home baseball game. On 2013′s Patriots’ Day, the Red Sox hosted the Rays, and it was 2-1 Boston in the top of the sixth when Evan Longoria batted with two down and runners on the corners. In a full count against Ryan Dempster, Longoria returned a grounder up the middle...

Evan Longoria - Baseball's most indispensable player?

It is good to be Evan Longoria. He is 27 years old and knows that he will make millions of dollars a season until the year 2023. That has to be a pretty darned good feeling. Not only that, he plays for a team that has been competitive and in the the thick of things for every season he has been in the majors. Then again, there might be a correlation between those two facts in the...
