Longoria wins league honor

The Southern League picked Biscuits third baseman Evan Longoria for its weekly hitting award Monday.

Longoria was 10-for-25 with three home runs and seven RBIs over the last seven days. He homered twice Sunday at Mobile. Longoria jumped to Class AA Montgomery on Aug. 4 and has a .378 average, four homers and 12 RBIs in nine games.

He was Tampa Bay's first-round draft pick two months ago and has hit 16 homers in 45 professional games.

What a Dirtbag!
(Reference to his college team, Long Beach State.)

Now we just have to hope that Mako leaves him alone, along with the other 3 newcomers (Breen, Brignac, and Ruggiano, who are hitting .270 between them)!!
