My Baseball Fantasy: Not Eva's Brother

Private League: won, 7-1-2 (74-39-7 overall, 1st place out of 10, 2.5 games ahead)
Public League: 3rd place out of 12
My Player of the Week: Evan Longoria (Third Baseman, Rays) with 4 home runs, 14 RBI, 8 runs and a .370 batting average

Longoria has required some patience this year. He was my first draft pick in the private league and I felt lucky to get him with the fifth pick. He was on the DL with an oblique injury early in the season, then was slow getting on track upon his return. This week, he has justified my faith.

I must confess that I was among those who thought he was actress Eva Longoria's brother. Apparently not. However, as I have also learned from Wikipedia, he was a champion wrestler in college.

  1. When he first came up, Lee and I called him Eva as a joke and still do to this day!
