Everybody Loves Evan Longoria

We should make t-shirts saying that or something, anyhow this from Ken Rosenthal's latest column:

One scout, after watching the Devil Rays' Evan Longoria in the Arizona Fall League, predicts that either Longoria or Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury will be the AL Rookie of the Year in 2008. Another scout says, "He plays the game real easy, and that's one of the finest compliments I can pay a player." Longoria, 22, could open in Triple-A, where he has had only 104 at-bats, but might be next season's Ryan Braun, making a rapid ascent to the majors.

We always figured it would come down to the former Rays' pick Tacoby Bellsbury and everyone's favorite Longoria -- Eva is a Parker now.
