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.

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...
