Three years ago on Rays Index we told you that most of the “experts” were projecting the Rays to select pitcher Brad Lincoln, with the 3rd overall pick. Lincoln ended up going to the Pirates with the next pick. Lincoln has finally made it to double-A this season. The Rays drafted some kid named Evan Longoria. We hear he is doing pretty good.

    Wonder if the picks were reversed...who the Rays would have selected??
    Heard they wanted a pitcher!
    Could be the blind squirrel finding that acorn story...

      Don, I think you read that wrong. The Rays picked first, and chose Longo. Lincoln was nabbed the pick after the Rays.
