The 2009 season was a magical one for Ben Zobrist. He hit .297/.405/.543 with 27 home runs in 501 at-bats. That season not only caused Zobrist's value to skyrocket on draft day 2010, but it became a big topic for debate in the months prior to the draft. The Rays seemed to think Zobrist was the real deal, they signed him to a three-year contract extension.
Fast forward to May 11, 2010: Zobrist is hitting .267/.346/.358 with zero home runs in 120 at-bats.
