"I heard it, but it is what it is," Gyorko said about the booing. "People are going to do whatever they want, so if that's what makes them happy, they can keep booing."

Analysis: If Gyorko, who's best suited for second base but also has experience at shortstop and third, can't cut it, there's also Cuban defector Aledmys Diaz or utilityman Greg Garcia. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny won't show his cards as to whether he favors Gyorko or Diaz to fill in for Peralta, who is out two to three months with a torn thumb ligament.
