Readers keep it cool Longoria
John Romano writes about the 'frightening' news that Evan Longoria has a fractured wrist and will join Carl Crawford on the sidelines as the Rays injuries pile up. "Seriously, this is about as bad as it can get for Tampa Bay," the Times columnist writes.
But tampabay.com readers are staying cool, staying away from the panic button.
Tim in Seattle says the Rays still have a solid team. "Keep it real, Rays fans. Playoffs this season is a possible goal, even with Longo and Crawford out. Bringing up the D word is just bad kharma!"
Mike reminds Romano there are other players on the team: "Isn't there a whole bunch of other players on this team? As good as Longo is, he is not the only reason the Rays are in 1st. Stop with the worry wart mentality. If this team is going to win it all, it will take the whole team! Time to step it up!"
And JAE offers a twist on an old adage: " There's no "L" in TEAM."
