Card of the Day: 2/21/16

2014 Donruss Signatures Kolten Wong

     Although rumors of a potential trade involving Wong going to Colorado and Carlos Gonzalez coming to St. Louis were abundant this off-season, our guy is still with the team. He'll have some competition at second base, though, since the Cardinals traded for Jedd Gyorko. A true platoon may develop with Wong starting against right-handed pitchers and Gyorko against left-handed pitchers. Both are capable of hitting with power and providing solid defense in the middle infield. A platoon situation may just push both these young players to discover their true potential. If all goes well, Wong and Gyorko could develop into a long-term, middle infield combo after Peralta's contract expires.


  1. I hope Wong can turn into the leadoff hitter he wants to be. I would love to see a .280 average, 10 home runs, and 25 stolen bases from him this season.

  2. Me too. I'm afraid his leash is getting short, though. He better get it figured out this year or he may be gone. Carpenter is too valuable of a hitter to be stuck in the 1 spot.
