We’ve already been told that Moss is going to get the first crack at the job and for good reason. As to who outplays the other and becomes the team’s starter come Opening Day, I think Moss is going to win out with Adams closely behind him.
Now, I don’t think that Moss is going to run away with the job leaving no room for Adams to be a player for the team in 2016. I simply believe that Moss is going to be given the benefit of the doubt and get the majority of at bats at the position. I believe they are both ready to make this a strong competition in spring training, one that many Cardinals’ fans are going to want to keep their eye on in 2016. They are both going to be keys to the offense getting back on track in 2016.
I think that even if Adams wins the job, Moss’ power will play for the Cardinals somewhere, especially given his versatility and ability to play in the outfield. This adds intrigue to the competition and makes even more sense as to why the Cardinals did not go out and spend a bunch of money this offseason on another outfielder.
With both players healthy, rested, and ready for action in 2016, it is going to make for one exciting campaign, one where plenty of souvenirs are deposited in the outfield seats. Man, I am ready for baseball season already. How about you Cardinals fans? Are you ready?
