Rays 3rd baseman Evan Longoria is already making insane defensive plays | Sharapova's Thigh

The Rays and Orioles are currently opening up their seasons at Tropicana Field, and Rays star third baseman Evan Longoria is already making absolutely absurd plays at third base.

After already making a terrific play defensively in the top of the fifth, Longoria ended the inning with what is definitely the top web gem we've seen so far in the first two days of the MLB season.

In GIF form via our buddy Scott Lewis of theScore's Getting Blanked (must-bookmark MLB blog), watch Longoria make a diving play to his left, and then, while sitting down, throw out the Orioles' Adam Jones at first base:

You get a pretty good idea of why the 27-year-old has two Gold Gloves. And at the plate, he's every bit as good, rocking a career .877 OPS.
