Thanks for the regular updates on Paul. He's doing ISU and himself proud.

DeJong (108 Games):
25 Home Runs and 60 RBI
Slash line - .285/.325/.532

Only negative is 124 K's to 21 Base on Balls...

DeJong could (and should) be 2nd for the NL ROY behind Cody Bellinger. Will be in the runner-up mix with Happ, Rhys Hoskins, Josh Bell, and a few more.

Great season by DeJong! :clap:

His play allowed the Cardinals to finish all the way up to 3rd place in the NL Central! :greetings-waveyellow:

Haha, very funny CP. Now where's my middle finger icon? ;)

Listened to postgame coverage today on Cardinals Radio Network and the organization is very high on DeJong. Not just performance, but lot of remarks about his character and accessibility. Pleased with his defense, too.

Another thing about him that goes largely unnoticed is that when someone in the locker room has a question about biochemistry, they will often go to Paul.

Paul was selected to the All Rookie team yesterday at SS. Great honor and once in a lifetime by a Redbird Baseball player most likely.

"DeJong never played shortstop—not even in college—until 11 games at the very end of last season at Double-A. DeJong took to it quickly, shored up some fine points at Triple-A, and took over the Cardinals everyday shortstop job by the end of June. DeJong's .857 OPS was third highest among big league shortstops, behind only Carlos Correa and Zack Cozart, and he led the Cardinals in homers despite playing only 108 games. Advanced metrics were fond of his defense as well, with Baseball-Reference.com crediting DeJong with the fifth-highest Range Factor per Game mark among NL shortstops."

"The rookie class of 2017 was record-breaking at the top, deep through the bottom and filled with top prospects showing flashes of their excellence. As time wears on, it will be no surprise if this rookie class stands the test of time as one of the best."
