Hershiser Makes A Good Point In The Radio Booth

After an eventful top of the fifth, the bottom of the fifth and the top of the sixth were quite routine with the mild exception of this play, Rafael Furcal throwing out Elvis Andrus by a step:

On the radio, Orel Hershiser said, "Of all the guys who played shortstop for the Cardinals this year, Rafael Furcal is the only one who makes that play."

For the record, here's who played shortstop for the Cardinals this season:

Ryan Theriot (87 starts)
Rafael Furcal (47)
Daniel Descalso (11)
Nick Punto (6)
Pete Kozma (1)
Tyler Greene (10)

So yeah, I'll buy that. Pete Kozma's supposed to be a pretty good shortstop, but I'll lay odds that Orel Hershiser has never heard of Pete Kozma.

On the McCarver Scale that measure analyst's observations, I'll give Hershiser an 8 out of 10.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are still ahead 4-3 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning. And somehow Colby Lewis is still in there for Texas.
