Evan Longoria feels ‘sorry’ for Rays fans after latest moves

The Tampa Bay Rays are cutting costs again, and for the first time, Evan Longoria is watching from afar and feeling sympathetic.

Longoria, who was traded to the San Francisco Giants earlier on the offseason, said he felt “sorry” for Rays fans after they traded pitcher Jake Odorizzi and designated outfielder Corey Dickerson for assignment, likely with the intent to trade him.

Dickerson was due roughly $6 million in 2018 after hitting .282 with 27 home runs and making the All-Star team last season.

This isn’t the first time Longoria has been critical of the Rays for making moves like this. It must be disheartening to see a team dropping their payroll below $70 million when MLB’s revenues are at an all-time high. Given Longoria’s rich history and attachment to the franchise, you can understand why he’d be sad about it, too.
