Matt Adams started in left field on Thursday.
No, no, you read that correctly. Feel free to read it again to let it truly sink in.
So yeah, Matt Adams starting in left field is a thing that is happening. And bless his heart, he tried really hard. And while Matt Adams is better than the average human at playing in a major league outfield, he is quite a bit worse than an average major league baseball player.
He tried. None of this is his fault. He is doing his best.
