A day after getting traded to the A's, Ben Zobrist noted that he was "sad to be leaving Tampa Bay."
"Today's been a little bit harder of a day than yesterday," said Zobrist in a phone interview Sunday. "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 of mine, so I wasn't thinking about it a whole lot.
"This morning I woke up and kind of realized our time in Tampa Bay is definitely over. It was definitely a little bit emotional."
