Dickie V & the Rays

Bradenton Herald, hat tip and thanks to Repoz from Baseball Think Factory:

"I think this year (the Rays) are going to turn the corner. I mean, you wait 10 years, you'd like to at least see a .500 season. I think we've been patient enough as people," Vitale said.

"They have three legitimate starters with (Scott) Kazmir, (Matt) Garza and (James) Shields, and I think the bullpen will be better with (Troy) Percival for experience. And (former St. Louis Cardinals general manager) Walt Jocketty, who is now with the (Cincinnati) Reds, told me third baseman Evan Longoria is going to be special."

This just reassures that everyone loves Evan Longoria.
