I went to bed last night with Evan Longoria having gotten a six-year, $100 million extension from the Tampa Bay Rays, a team not known for being able to keep players around for the long term. At that point, there was no excuse for the Mets to continue to silly around with this process. Whether its truth or perception, it isn't a good look to have the Rays lock up a player who was nowhere near free agency, and at the same time have your organization, money problems or no money problems, dick around with the face of your franchise.
