08:08 AM ET 07.13 | Evan Longoria's health will likely play a factor in whether the Rays are buyers or sellers at the deadline. Executive VP Andrew Friedman said their overall health is "kind of the linchpin" in what they do. ... Knowing Longoria will be back sooner would allow them to try to address other concerns (catcher, shortstop). If he will be out longer, they could either seek another interim replacement or more offense at another spot, such as a low-cost pickup like the Cubs' Alfonso Soriano. In a worst-case scenario -- Longoria delayed, losing most of the 17 games before the deadline -- they could deal potential free agents-to-be such as B.J. Upton, Carlos Pena, Luke Scott and others for talent and/or savings that helps in the future.

We need Harper ... but he gets whacked so quickly now it's hard to get into it good with him.

All he likes to do now is call me names.
