We still need a shortstop.

We heard you a week ago Dave M. Where were you last year when Furcal was hitting .264 or the year before when he hit .255 for the Cards? Last year he had 15 errors in 120 games, Kozma has 6 in 99 games this year. Granted, Kozma will likely never be what Furcal was in his prime, but his stats are comparable to post-prime Furcal. Kozma’s career batting average is .251. As long as he continues to play solid defense, that should be enough.

It won’t be enough,that’s the problem.Furcal got on base MORE than Kozma AND was a threat on the bases….Kozma certainly isn’t and never will be.Even Furcal,pass his prime was more of a threat.So Kozma is a down grade.

HEY Kristofer……………we still need a shortstop.
