VEB Community Projections 2014: Kolten Wong

EVERYONE LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS JERSEY IS - Ronald Martinez

A note from bgh: This is the fourth in an ongoing series of posts in which we are asking the VEB community for their projections of how Cardinals players will perform in 2014. The more community member projections, the merrier, so please share your 2014 Kolten Wong forecast in the form below.

Kolten Wong was categorically awful last year. That's bad!

Kolten Wong will probably not be categorically awful this year. That's good!

I do not know the level at which Kolten Wong will not be categorically awful next year. That's... neither

Kolten Wong's mediocre year in Springfield (.287/.348/.405) was pretty disappointing in a stadium/league that saw Daniel Descalso hit .323/.396/.531. That's bad!

Kolten Wong very good year in Memphis (.303/.369/.466) was pretty awesome in a stadium/league that saw Daniel Descalso hit .281/.349/420. That's good!

Kolten Wong contains potassium benzoate.

The Cardinals traded David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels this offseason seemingly hoping that 2014 Wong (And Ellis, depending on how they're platooned) + 2014 Carpenter is better than 2013 Carpenter + 2013 Freese. Carpenter and Freese combined for 7.3 WAR last year, so even if you project Carpenter for a pretty decent heapin' of regression (which you absolutely should), the combination could still easily see a net positive. And this is all ignoring the fact that we got Peter Bourjos and Randal Grichuk in trade as well!
