Jung Ho, Jung's off to work we go....

With the Pirates Opening Day SS and 3B both out for 5+ more weeks, it's a great thing that the Pirates acquired Jung-Ho Kang (pronounced Gong) in the offseason.

In only 78 games, he has already produced 2.2 WAR according to his baseball-reference page.  That's incredible!!! In a half season produced enough for his entire contract (4 years/$11M)

The Pirates are continuing to battle the Red Birds for top place in the NL Central and currently have the 3rd best record in baseball.

Hopefully between Kang at SS and recently acquired former Bucco Aramis Ramirez, the Pirates can continue to gain some ground on the Cardinals.


I bought the above Prism Fresh Faces auto the day Prizm went live. With Topps putting Kang's auto in several product releases since then, I should have waited.
