That being said, while I like this quote, I just don't see it ever happening, but hey, what the hell do I know, right?
This nugget comes from Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times who was talking with Pete about the Rays and Evan Longoria. And then this happened:
"'He's the type of guy you'd rather see -- maybe I shouldn't say this -- on a really, really good team,' Rose said. 'Guys like Evan should be in the playoffs, in the World Series. You've got the best players in the game, you want them to be in front of the national media, putting their talents on display....
'I don't want to say Tampa's not a great city because I got my start here, but it's a small city compared to the press. So a lot of people don't know about Longoria that should know about him. They don't want to hear that here, that they should lose him. But I'd rather if he was on the Yankees or on the Cubs or someone like that. ... A big market.'"
