Nice first inning for the offense. Piscotty with an RBI double and Adams with a 2 RBI single. 3-0 Redbirds after 1-1/2.

Piscotty absolutely thriving in the 4-hole tonite.

Who'd have precicted coming into this season that Piscotty would be Babe Ruth & Grichuk would be Minnie Mendoza?

Why did Grichuk get pulled for Hazelbaker in the 4th? Injury or something?

Carpenter with a nice game, 6 rbi's, and Adams has 4. Nice seeing Adams doing well.

Here's something I did not expect to see this morning...

Cardinals Top RBI rate Leaders (min 60 opps):
*** 1. Adams 22% ***
2. Carpenter 22%
3. Piscotty 21%
4. Diaz 17%
5. Molina 17%

Matt Adams is making a lot of people prepare their crow right now. If he could figure out the power, we'd all have to dig in. Personally, I'll have to use the fork I stuck in him last year about this time.

Funny how a little competition and bench time brings out the best in some. Give Adams the PT. The power numbers will come. Moss is strictly a bench player IMO except for the rare spot start.... 8-)

If you had Pham up, you could argue that Holliday and Adams should platoon at first, putting Pham in the lineup. But he's not and Hazelbaker is a lefty too.

Holliday is a difference-making RBI machine. Platoon Holliday to play Pham? Seriously? Is it April 1st today?

Let's not do handstands yet just because Adams has had a handful of decent games vs cherry-picked pitchers.
