Evan Longoria trade marks end of remarkable era for Rays

Baseball doesn't work that way these days, and the structure of that extension Longoria signed all but demanded he be moved, given the Rays' customary payroll constraints.
Despite the addition of Longoria, the Giants remain weak in the outfield.
The trade of Span increases the chances that Hunter Pence remains with the Giants next season, however the team has had some discussions with Jay Bruce. At last season's trade deadline, the Giants sent third baseman Matt Duffy to Tampa Bay for lefty starter Matt Moore. He was extremely lucky last season at Triple-A (.427 BABIP) and extremely unlucky in the majors (.231 BABIP), but has the potential to hit a fairly empty.300 in his prime years.
The Giants have been looking to add a slugger to their lineup this offseason, and were considered one of the front-runners in the Giancarlo Stanton trade rumors.
UPDATE, 4:02: It doesn't sound like the Rays and Cardinals will be making a deal today, Derrick Goold writing for the St. Louis Post Dispatch that Cardinals execs "leave the Walt Disney Dolphin resort with good feel for what Tampa Bay would be willin".
Evan Longoria trade marks end of remarkable era for Rays
Unlike other teams that might have gone in the opposite direction, the Giants' response to last season's bottoming-out has been to think big for 2018.
Since he first set foot on a Major League Baseball field back in 2008, Evan Longoria has been the player most closely associated to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The 32-year-old Longoria is the picture of reliability and durability: He's played at least 122 games every year but 2012, when he missed half the season with a hamstring strain, and has posted an OPS of.840 or better every season but two. He is the club's all-time leader with 1,435 games played, 261 home runs and 892 RBIs.
The three time All-Star, Longoria finished 2017 with a 3.6 WAR, 20 home runs, 86 runs batted in. San Francisco may have been better off going cheaper, younger or shorter at the position instead of taking a short-term upgrade that carries significant long-term complications. Now he goes across the country to lock down third base for the San Francisco Giants. The Rays reportedly have agreed to help pay part of that sum.
Longoria is still a plus player, but nowhere near the player, he was a few years ago.
