Jose Tabata celebrated the favorable comments by hitting his 1 billionth ground ball.

In a row.


I don't mind him hitting it on the ground so much. That way he can take advantage of his blazing...uh...never mind. But seriously, he has been hitting a few more line drives lately, and he's not afraid of deep counts.

Did they show a graphic that he's hitting almost .300 in August? Tough crowd.

If this were a Cardinals board, half of the threads would say "KOZMA SUCKS!!!!"

I've been to Cardinals boards... and half of threads basically do say "Kozma Sucks." So, well done.

So what if he's hitting almost .300 in August? He handles the bat well, but as a long term solution, he lacks the speed to play center or left for this team, and lacks the power to play right. Plus he can't stay on the field. Other than that he's great.

Kozma does suck.

Like an industrial vacuum on "high."

We need consistency at the plate more than we need power out of RF, and I'll take Tabata's 20 for 65 this month over Jones's 7 for 58.

His speed is gone from his rookie season, true, but he's got enough to handle PNC's right.
