    He might have a slight bounceback being on the not-Rays but I would have rather gone the cheaper route and had Arroyo/Sandoval at 3B for 2018.

    He's more valuable off of 3rd and at 2nd or SS.

    That's a whole lotta cheese.

    Yeah, I can see him having a year like 2014/2015.

    Longo's a smart hitter who manages to flirt with 40 2B every year playing at the Trop. That number is bound to go up playing at AT&T Park. If he's swinging for gappers instead of the fences his BA will probably go up too. We all know the defence is top notch as well. I think Longo is going to fare well in SF.

    Your just happy he's out of the AL East! That said, you are probably right about most of this.

    Longoria is a pure pro. He's going to have a plus effect on the team just from that point of view.

    He's also only entering his age 32 year. It wouldn't surprise me at all, in fact I expect a couple 4 WAR seasons from him moving forward.

    Good day for the Giants. A few more moves needed but this one helps them get better immediately and isn't just a short term fix.

    Interesting take. Also, Rays fans aren't to happy about this from really any perspective.

    Even worse, why would the Rays front office do this to Evan Longoria? The Giants might already have the worst farm system in baseball, and if they didnít before, they may now. They also might have the most expensive team in baseball, and the toughest division, with no projection toward the playoffs

    Longoria is being sent from a team five games out of the Wild Card in 2017 to a team that might be gunning for the No. 1 draft pick in 2018, while neither saving money in 2018 or making the current squad appreciably better.

    So if my math (and intel) is right, the Giants owe Longoria $73.5MM/5 years, which comes to an AAV of $14.7MM. This makes me like the move quite a bit more. Still far from thrilled but that's a pretty cheap rate for a guy of his pedigree.
