11/26/2012 | Rays' signing of Longoria a win all around

There's much to like about St. Louis Cardinals second-base prospect Kolten Wong. Having the ability to consistently put the bat on the ball as well as being able to accept walks help profile Wong as a top of the batting order hitter. He should be able to get on base and score runs.
11/26/2012 | Zack and Josh Show getting ready to roll
