When the shortstop who played in 143 games for your team hits just .217 on the year, and goes a combined 1-for-25 in the NLCS and World Series, it's pretty clear that upgrading the position is going to be an off-season priority. All apologies to Pete Kozma, but the St. Louis Cardinals will be shopping for a new shortstop this winter.
