PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Alex Cobb looked around the clubhouse and observed there were a lot of familiar faces in camp, with limited changes.
Did it feel weird to see a lot of the same people?
"I wouldn't say it feels wierd," Cobb said. "I'd say it almost feels comfortable. With the offseason being as short as it was, with us making the playoffs, it kind of feels like we didn't skip a beat. Kind of feels like Ground Hog Day, just show up at the locker room, and there's your buddies. Let's go play ball again. It's nice to just have that smooth transition from the offseason."
