Evan Longoria Part II

Just a follow up on my earlier Evan Longoria post. Longoria spoke to the media today after working out at the Naimoli Complex. Longoria is one of 30 plus early Rays to camp. Longoria sounds pretty confident about his chances:

"I'm feeling pretty good coming into the spring so I was just hoping that they would let me play and ... let them make the decision after the spring,''

"I couldn't come in thinking I wasn't going to get the job,'' Longoria said. "All I can do is stay positive, have a good spring and put the pressure on them to make a decision.''

I love his attitude, especially the last line about putting pressure on the team to make a decision.
