Wong Place, Right Time For Steals

Kolten Wong has received the Grey seal of approval from the BUY column, but I'd like to take a minute to talk about his wheels, considering he's owned in less than 20 percent of ESPN leagues. He's hitting higher in the batting order for the Cardinals now, and has stolen three bases in the past week. He's also hot, riding a six-game hit streak entering today. Wong...

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...

Kolten Wong wins 2b job

It comes as no surprise that Kolten Wong has been named the starting second baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals. To be honest, the big surprise was the $5.25 million they gave to Mark Ellis this off season. We already had projected Wong for over 500 at-bats so his ranking position will not change based on this news. Wong was a career .301 hitter in the minor leagues but there...

The curious case of Kolten Wong

Kolten Wong was unstoppable in the minors. He was like a freight train that couldn’t be stopped. Then he came to the big league club. When he took second base for the St. Louis Cardinals, that freight train ran into a brick wall. The 2011 first round draft pick was getting it done in a big way in the minors, but something stopped him dead in his tracks under the arch.The 23-year...

Wong homers for second straight day as Cards beat Mets 6-4

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer for the second straight day, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 6-4 Wednesday.

Juan Lagares had a two-run single for the Mets. Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez...

Kolten Wong should be the primary starter at second base for the Cardinals

COMMENTARY | On Monday we asked what role Kolten Wong should have in 2014. The choices were to start, come off the bench, or be traded. Wong has been a hot topic this spring as he started slowly at the plate, plus the addition of Aledmys Diaz may put pressure on him. In our poll, starting received 79% of the votes, backup 15%, and traded 6%. I asked this question because it seems...

It's backflip official: Cardinals' Wong is relaxed

JUPITER, Fla. -- After a rough start to spring training, it's pretty much official. Cardinals rookie Kolten Wong has relaxed. You did not need to see him homer, double and make a diving catch against the Mets on Tuesday afternoon to understand this, either. All you needed to see was what he did during the Cardinals' team stretch hours before the game. The feat was impressive...

Monday Poll: What will 2014 look like for Kolten Wong?

Kolten Wong is coming off of a rough end to the 2013 season. Between hitting .154 in the final month of the season and his devastating pick-off in the World Series, Wong has had a lot to think about this off-season. The addition of Mark Ellis probably didn’t help that. Although, it was thought that the addition of Ellis was just insurance for Wong, some wonder how much playing...

What is wrong with Wong?

The St. Louis Cardinals are only three games into the 2014 Spring Training season, but rookie Kolten Wong is not making his case to earn the starting second base spot in the Redbirds lineup this season. Wong, who was the Cardinals first round pick in the 2011 draft, has gone 0-6 so far with four strike outs. In addition, he has yet to hit a ball on the ground, which would seem to...

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...
