Ben Zobrist played in 59 regular-season games for the Royals last season. Add the 16 playoff games, and he was a Royal for a total of 75 games after the team acquired him in a trade last summer.

But because he was a key member of the World Series championship team with the Royals, fans still love Zobrist.
