Well, I think we learned a few things from yesterday's game. One, is that you can just go ahead and pencil in Evan Longoria for the 3B Gold Glove right now. I'm certain Manny will be great, but that dude was ridic yesterday. Second, is that Matt Wieters and Adam Jones will obviously be co-AL MVPs this season. My logic is indisputable.

But seriously, with the AL East appearing to be incredibly tight this year every single game vs. an AL East opponent could be critical come the end of the season. So it's great to take a game from the Rays in their park, and doubly so to take one against David Price. Now let's see them wrap up a series win tonight!
