There is no denying that first baseman was hitting the ball well before his injury, as a .542 batting average and three home runs in just 24 at-bats more than speaks for itself. He is set to return from his oblique injury in Week 6 (May 6-12), and may represent a tantalizing starting option for some owners.

Unfortunately, his 24 at-bats came sprinkled throughout the course of 18 days, and there is little indication that more playing time is going to become available upon his return. As our Scott White notes in , Adams does not make much sense as a starting option right now. Given the makeup of the Cardinals’ roster, Adams is likely to get lost in the shuffle, no matter how big a stick he might swing.

’42’ sets baseball movie record for opening weekend

As most of us know by now, 42 — a.k.a. the Jackie Robinson movie — hit theaters nationwide Friday.

And it was a raging success, banking $27.2 million, winning the weekend at the box office in blowout fashion (Scary Movie 5 was second at $15.1 million). , 42 is now the record-holder for the biggest opening weekend among baseball movies.

Embarrassingly so, the record was previously held by The Benchwarmers. Seriously. That movie with David Spade, Rob Schneiderikel Arteta has provided an update on the fitness of Calum Chambers and Granit Xhakaties to play for England.The 20-year-old won his first cap in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Bulgaria.”It gone so well so far,’ said Mount.”If you look at our squad it’s young – one that wants to learn and wants to win. If you are playing well, you are goin.Neither player is fit to play at present.The Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against Chelsea, and must now get ready for a New Year’s Day game against Manchest and the dude who played Napolean Dynamite (yeah, I know his real name — I just don’t care) was the record-holder.

Thankfully, 42 is a much more worthy title-holder.

For those who somehow like baseball and haven’t seen the trailer, here it is:
