    Here is an interesting twist to the Ben Zobrist-Yunel Escobar trade with the Oakland A’s. Escobar has now been traded to the Washington Nationals for Tyler Clippard.

    Bill Chastain spoke with Ben Zobrist about being traded: “Today’s been a little bit harder of a day than yesterday … Yesterday was a little bit of a shock. Didn’t really spend much time thinking about it, though, because I had a birthday party thing going on with a friend […]

    Matt Silverman did a Q&A with MLB.com. The most interesting part of the interview comes at the end where Silverman pretty much concedes what we have been saying around here, that the 2015 season is being sacrificed for the future.

    Yesterday I declared that the expected trade of Ben Zobrist meant the Rays were effectively sacrificing the 2015 season with a look to the future.
