KOLTEN WONG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Setting the Cardinals’ table: Matt Carpenter or Kolten Wong?

For a sizable chunk of the previous season, Cardinals’ third baseman Matt Carpenter served as the team’s leadoff hitter. Nonetheless, when he was not there, a significant decline in offensive production was the outcome.  It’s claimed that the decrease was only coincidental, and there are happenings to support that. So, it’s possible that sifting the two-time All-Star a...

Cardinals: Don’t trade Kolten Wong

Temptation is a double edged sword for a baseball team in December. General managers see trees and lights and think it’s a time of giving. A chance to be bold arises.

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

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...
