Wong feeling better, but won't rush back from calf injury for Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has missed four consecutive games heading into play Friday dealing with an injured calf. Despite his forced time off the field, Wong told's Jennifer Langosch on Thursday that he felt 'optimistic' about returning sometime over the weekend after a successful running test on the calf didn't create any more issues. The Cards aren...

Kolten Wong: A beauty and a beast 

    Speaking in the terms of an “it factor”, Kolten Wong has got it. From when he positions himself in the field to every time he steps in the left-handed batter’s box, Kolten has this sense of swagger lingering around him. Sometimes, the swagger he has is so conspicuous. Spectators of the ballgame eagerly await for his next turn to bat or for the next ball hit to his area...

St Louis Cardinals: Kolten Wong’s Rookie of the Year chances

There is no doubting Kolten Wong’s emergence as the Cardinals’ everyday second baseman. Despite getting sent back to AAA in April and dealing with an injury in June, he has been the obvious choice over Mark Ellis for the Cardinals to start every day. The Cardinals will rely on his bat to spark the bottom of the lineup through the playoff race. However, with his improved place...

This time the Cardinals Kolten Wong appears to be getting it right

In many ways, Kolten Wong was the poster child for the Cardinals offensive struggles at the beginning of the season.  While the team was struggling with a .246 average in March and April, Wong didn't help matters, hitting .225 with a.544 OPS.Never mind that other players were also struggling who were counted on to produce (I'm looking at you Allen Craig), the Cardinals felt the...

More evidence that Kolten Wong is a winner

Ok, that’s definitely just a click-baiting headline, but stick with me here. In doing some research for another post, I was re-introduced to the fantastic site of one David Pinto, Baseball Musings. Amongst the other wonderful things you can find at David’s website is one tool called the “Day-by-Day Database.” It will allow you to input various parameters and dates for a...

What if the Wong plan was actually right?

How about Kolten Wong?! Finally, we’re seeing the version of the young second baseman that we all expected hoped for. Since he rejoined the team (and overcame the ill-timed stomach bug that delayed his first game back), he’s done nothing but collect five hits (including two bunt base hits in one game and a bases-clearing double on Sunday), drive in three runs while scoring three...

Wong Demotion Highlights Changing Cardinal Tides

To say that the Cardinal offense has been stagnant of late would be about as gross of an understatement as possible. Until yesterday’s seven run outburst, the team had not scored more than four runs in a single game since April 17th. In the midst of this dry spell, they leaned as much on pitching as possible, but as is the case when a team is that lopsided, it played close to the...

Cardinals look to shake thing up by demoting Kolten Wong

With their offense continuing to struggle, the Cardinals decided to shake things up by demoting second baseman Kolten Wong to AAA.  Wong has certainly struggled on the season, hitting just .225/.276/.268, but he is not the only one.Shortstop Jhonny Peralta (.195/.290/.476) is not doing much to make Cardinals fans forget about Pete Kozma and his offensive struggles.  "Clutch" hitter...

Rookie Kolten Wong Expected to Be St. Louis Cardinals’ Starting 2nd Baseman

Kolten Wong’s journey has traveled many directions in his short time establishing himself on the St. Louis Cardinals’ roster. He was the prospect who was poised to take the position over late last season. He became the heir apparent during the offseason. He struggled at the start of spring training. Now he appears to be the starting second baseman when the season begins. As...

Cardinals sign Mark Ellis as a $5.25 million insurance policy

The Cardinals announced the signing of second baseman Mark Ellis to a one-year, $5.25 million contract yesterday, which should all but conclude their Hot Stove League moves. Ellis, who will turn 37 next June, will head into the 2014 season as the Cardinals insurance policy for the unproven Kolten Wong. The second base job is Wong's to lose and he will likely be the Cards opening...
