The Time Is Now For Pete Kozma
Right on cue, Pete Kozma hit a homerun today for the Cardinals. A few hours earlier, Kozma inherited the starting shortstop job when the team announced Rafael Furcal would miss the entire season. Kozma also singled and help set up a run in the game against the New York Yankees. It’s just a spring training game, but Kozma’s continued hot hitting in the Grapefruit League has to give his manager, teammates and Cardinals fans more confidence that he can handle the job on a full time basis.
