Pirates try to salvage a game in St. Louis

Do we have to talk about yesterday’s game? One of my least favorite 2014 memories was the carbon-copy back-to-back walkoff losses the Pirates had in St. Louis in the early summer, one on a Matt Adams walkoff homer and one on a Kolten Wong walkoff homer. We’re barely into the 2015 season at all and the Pirates have already created a stomach-churning counterpart to that. After...

Matt Adams Not Off To The Ideal Start

It’s fair to say that the Cardinals had questions about Matt Adams. Signing Mark Reynolds served a duel purpose: 1) Let Matt Adams know that he’s going to have to earn his playing time in 2015 and that if he doesn’t perform, the team has viable options to replace him on a regular basis. 2) Actually replace Matt Adams if he isn’t able to get the job done. A $2M insurance policy...

St. Louis Cardinals: Matt Adams Primed For Big Season

If there is a Matt in camp this spring that will have plenty of eyes on him, it’s Matt Adams. Carpenter and Holliday are expected to provide a certain potency, but Adams is a wildcard. Who knows what the big man can produce if he gets another 140 games and 520 at bats this year with the Cardinals? Matt Adams has all the pressure in the world on his shoulders, or at least he talks...

St Louis Cardinals: how will Adams/Reynolds duo perform?

The Cardinals did not sign free agent right-handed slugger Mark Reynolds to be a platoon partner for lefty Matt Adams. Let’s make that clear. The job is Adams’ unless he shows some significant regression this season. However, there were plenty of reasons that a bat like the one Reynolds possesses was needed on a team that was so power-starved last season. While Reynolds may not...

Cardinals search for right fielder compliment to first baseman Matt Adams

Matt Adams struggled to perform against left handed pitchers this year. He  hit just .190 with 23 hits against left handed pitchers compared to his .318 average with 129 hits this year against righties. The Cardinals were on the search for a compliment for Adams against right handers.  With the tragic death of outfielder Oscar Taveras the Cardinals now are in need of an outfielder...

Waiting for the regression of Matt Adams

After the 2013 season, it seemed impossible that Allen Craig would be an afterthought this season as Matt Adams has taken over the darling position as the Cardinals favorite flavor on offense. And rightly so. While Craig has had a hard time getting going this season, Adams has taken the world by storm by batting .325 with .532 slugging percentage and an impressive .376 wOBA....

By the numbers: Matt Adams among MLB Fantasy Sophomore hitters ready to contribute

Matt Adams, 1B, St. Louis Cardinals – Over 319 plate appearances last season all Matt Adams did was mash. He struggled to find playing time (those PAs came at a 2.95 per game clip) but was a strong hitter when in the game for the Cards. With 17 home runs, 46 runs scored and 51 batted in and a .284 batting average Adams had a fine rookie season – enough to earn himself the starting...
