Adams' walk-off blast sinks Pirates

You could call Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams many things, most of them flattering, but one of them would not be light-footed. Yet, as he circled the bases Monday night at Busch Stadium on the first game-ending homer at any level of his baseball career, he fairly flew. “I don’t think I touched the dirt the whole way around,” said the imposing Adams, whose two-run shot off...

Matt Adams Really Loves His Dad

Big City.  Big Country.  Big Mayo. There’s a reason we call Matt Adams Big Fill-In-The-Blank on this blog.  There are so many nicknames floating around for him, all based on the idea that he’s a big guy.  On a weekend where we lost a pop culture legend, though, it seems appropriate to reach back into Casey Kasem’s heyday to pull out another nom de plume.
