Signing the youngsters to long term deals

Looks like the Rays are really looking in to the future.  They just signed rookie 3B Evan Longoria to a guaranteed 6 year deal, with options that could make it a 9 years deal.

All this to a rookie who hasn't proven that he'll stick at the ML level.  I find this quite surprising.  Maybe they're looking at what Shapiro and Antonetti have done and just accelerated the program.
