Player Profile #138: Matt Adams | 1B | STL

What a weird year for Matt Adams and his fantasy owners. He wasn’t totally disappointing. He finished as the 19th-best 1B and 142nd overall according to ESPN’s Player Rater. That’s not far from what we predicted for Adams in 2014, but like most prognosticators we predicted more power and a lower average for Adams than what he had. It’s understandable when you consider...

Mike Golic Rips Bill Simmons for Comparing LeBron James To Albert Pujols (Video)

The Cleveland Cavaliers are good for business, so everyone is going to have a comment or opinion about their slow start to the season.

Questioning Albert Pujols’ 2014 season

After a depressing, injury-riddled 2013 season, the Angels got a nice bounceback season from their quarter-billion dollar man, Albert Pujols. He still didn’t exactly play up to his contract though, so perhaps the excitement should be tempered a bit. Did Albert bounceback enough? In 2013, Albert was playing on one leg for all intents and purposes and managed a .329 wOBA and 112...

Angels needs going into the offseason

The Angels are needy. All they do want, want want. They were the best team in baseball in 2014 with 98 wins, yet here they are acting like greedy little brats, demanding more toys for their roster so they can be even better. Ugh, what an insufferable ballclub.

Angels stung by Royals' incredible defensive plays from outfielders

The Angels had two men on base in the fifth inning, and Albert Pujols was up with designs on starting a rally. He hit a shot to center field, and Lorenzo Cain made a diving catch. Howie Kendrick then hit a shot to center field as well, and again, Cain got the Royals and starter James Shields out of a jam with another diving catch. Shields walked off the field holding his hat high...

"He told me to just be myself, and not try to hit that home run when you don't need it," Trout said. "Just keep that same swing...
