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...

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...

How does Matt Adams’ Wednesday blast stack up?

About one thing we can agree. St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams’ three-run home run off Milwaukee’s Matt Garza on Wednesday afternoon was not only a much-needed tonic to his club’s listless offense, the blast was also the longest shot at Busch Stadium this season. Getting into actual home run lengths, however, is murky territory. Adams’ blast was called 439 feet...

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...
