The Question: How will Rays fare without Longo?

The Rays, who lead the AL East as the calendar turns to May, just learned they'll be without Evan Longoria for more than a month.

Tampa Bay is first and foremost a team built around its pitching and defense, but even so, Longoria is the key to the Rays' lineup and one of the best players in the game.

With two series each against the Red Sox and Yankees in the next five weeks, Tampa Bay will be tested without its star player.

So, wonders what you think: how will they fare in the interim? Will the Rays still be in first place when Longoria comes back in June or July?
