Cardinals: Matt Adams or Brandon Moss in postseason?

There’s still work to be done this week but I can’t help but think about playoff roster assignments for the St. Louis Cardinals. More importantly, who doesn’t make it? Who between say, Matt Adams and Brandon Moss, do you take? Before play opens tonight against Milwaukee, the Cards are 97-56, a whopping 41 games over .500. They are only four games ahead of the wild card leading...

Matt Adams Is Back

The baseball season is long. There was a time – during this season – when Cardinal fans were wondering out loud if Matt Adams was the solution at 1B; if he was blowing his shot at cementing his place as an every day, every at bat player. Interesting what 4 months of Mark Reynolds and Brandon Moss can do for one’s reputation. Tonight in Milwaukee Matt Adams will get his first...

Big return of the Big City

   Ha, take that, quadriceps. Just because you had to be surgically repaired didn’t necessarily mean that you were going to keep Cardinal first baseman Matt Adams from playing again this season, though the odds were in your favor. Matt Adams- 1, quad-…I don’t know, but who cares–Matt’s back! The Cardinals activated Mr. Adams off of the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday...

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....

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. The Big Bopper...

For Matt Adams, hitting lefties is serious business

JUPITER, Fla. -- A group of St. Louis Cardinals that included Matt Adams had just finished an agility drill during which much laughter was heard as players shuffled from cone to cone at the quick commands of trainer Rachel Balkovec. Think "Simon Says" for big leaguers. "That looked like a lot of fun," Balkovec was told afterward. She thought so, too, partly because she had been able...

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...
