 The Home Team: The Starting Lineup
As he mentioned repeatedly during his shockingly unsuccessful mayoral campaign, Evans has never been one to settle for talking about what could be; for years he’s used his district as a laboratory, sorting out what will help struggling urban communities and what won’t.
Another says Evans is the only House Democrat not seriously hindered by his party’s minority status; he eagerly courts colleagues from across the aisle, something that’s "extraordinarily rare in the Pennsylvania legislature." This combined with his position as ranking Democrat on the powerful Appropriations Committee means Evans’ support for an issue carries real weight.
The closest thing to criticism our experts offered up was noting Evans’ periodic flirtations with executive offices (he ran for governor in 1994 and apparently considered challenging Rendell in the primary in ’95).

Evans was never the best hitter in the majors.
On the other hand, over the course of their careers, Evans was a slightly better player, mostly because he was a much better defensive player.
