This kind of hurts

From Peter Gammons' column:

Rays manager Joe Maddon maintains Ben Zobrist has blossomed into "one of the most valuable players in the game. I have no fear of playing him at seven positions; he's a switch-hitter and he has power. He's an amazing weapon."

Remember Ben Zobrist? He was traded by Tim Purpura for Aubrey Huff in July 2006.

And he's as good of a person as a player. I had the priviledge of having a few conversations with him in AA Corpus (along with several with his wife who is also fantastic), so I have really enjoyed watching him excel.
