Evan Almighty

Using Kevin Gengler's nickname for Longoria, but here's Keith Law's thoughts on Longo after seeing him in action for the first time:

Evan Longoria (Devil Rays) can really play. He hit a ball clear out of Phoenix Municipal Stadium on Friday night, his second homer in as many nights, and looks like the new David Wright. His defense at third base is outstanding. He has good range in both directions, great hands, and plus arm strength and accuracy. At the plate, his load is a little deep, but he more than makes up for it with quick wrists and a very short path to the ball. He's going to hit for average and power, get on base and play Gold Glove defense. He's the early leader for AL Rookie of the Year in 2008.

Everybody loves Longoria.
