Not based on ST...Furcal has been weak since he arrived in St. Louis. BTW, he only hit one ball well in his last AB. Did you not see the dribbler that Ramirez on 3rd and the SS just WATCHED go through?
He had a good day, and will have others. But in the long run he is still not a good LO hitter.
Beltran, of course lood good, going 2 for 5. I can't wait to see the great Pujols' 1st AL game. BTW, in an interview yesterday he called the Card fans "haters" and said to give his #5 to someone and that he will get his WS ring from Tony whenever he see's him. I'm sure there will be a thread on this today.
