MATT ADAMS RUMORS & GOSSIP

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Adam Lind edition

With the loss of Matt Adams, the St. Louis Cardinals have been shorthanded at the first base position, relying heavily on Mark Reynolds to carry the load. Reynolds is a solid fielder, but is somewhat struggling at the plate, with a .229 batting average and 86 strikeouts. As the July 31st trade deadline approaches, there is talk of whether the Cardinals will pick up a left-handed...

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: 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....

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...

Cardinals First Baseman Matt Adams Shoves Fan Who Catches Foul Ball; Fan Tells Him He's No. 1

When it comes to foul balls they are fair game as long as a fan does not have to reach beyond the wall to go after one. That's not to say that a player can't go after one that is hit in the stands, and they often do. So when Cardinals first basemen Matt Adams went after a ball in the first row we shouldn't be surprised. His reaction when a fan made the catch instead of him was a...

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...
