Rafael Furcal to miss the last two Cardinals games

1 Comment

Rafael Furcal had to leave last night’s Cards-Astros game due to a tight left hamstring. It seems now that he’s going to need a coupe of days to recover.  Since there are only a couple of days in the season that means that the Cardinals will have to win or lose the wild card without him.

In his place: likely Nick Punto, according to Matt Leach of MLB.com. No word on whether Ryan Theriot will play a part. Which is strange because, after all, the Cardinals were in first place back when he was the starting shortstop.

Oh well. It is what it is.
