Evan Longoria of our Tampa Bay Rays was named the American League Player of the Month for April. He hit .369 with six home runs and 24 RBI, many coming in big game situations. He also led the league with 11 doubles. He says he wanted to try cutting down on strikeouts and finding better pitches to hit this season, and he has been doing some of that. Now if only about six or seven other guys on this team would follow suit.
Congratulations on the hardware, Evan. Now win this award again in September, then capture the big trophy in the World Series.
