Yes, that's Evan Longoria in there somewhere, under that impressive offseason beard: "I started growing it in November. And it just kept growing. And my wife likes it. . . . I think I'll probably keep it until I suckvfor a couple of weeks. And then it will be gone."

With his new beard and newfound plunge into Pilates, Evan Longoria is channeling his inner Jake Arrieta. But one thing he's learned is: "Women are so much better at Pilates than men."

After the Rays traded Logan Forsythe to LA, Evan Longoria tweeted that he was "surprised" & "upset." But he said Saturday: "I actually like where we are. I don't know that I'll ever get over losing Logan, because we got real close, and he became one of the clubhouse leaders. So when you take that away, it feels like there's a much bigger void."
