As excited as I am about Adams I don't see him as a fix/answer right now.His only position is 1B and he hits LH. Right now that is Berkman. And I think moving Berkman to the OF would be a mistake.
Corner OF will be Holliday & Beltran(hopefully any day now!). Berkman is at 1B and Craig/Carpenter back up both positions. I know Craig is on the DL(is that official?) but I can't see bringing up Adams to PH & back up Berkman.
You have a point, but the Cards need some offense to make up for the walking (and not playing) wounded key players on the roster. I would prefer waiting till the end of the season to bring Adams up for a taste, but if the DL list stays populated with most of the Cards offense, something will need to be done to offset the loss of offense (and defense). And I'm not fully comfy with the notion that Puma will not make another visit to the DL list before the season ends.
As for Puma in RF, it might be easier on him than the infield ... one never knows for sure. What's best depends on precisely what is the source of his ailing. At 1B he gets caught having to make a lot of sudden and awkward moves and twists which could be more deleterious to his bod than the occasional running he needs to do to play RF.
If Berkman goes down for a lengthy period you might see Adams.
Otherwise I really don't see Puma in RF. Unless Puma and Beltran go down together then Craig fills the void in RF & 1B with Carpenter helping out.
Adams looks so good I hate to mess with him right now. If Berkman doesn't come back 2013 is his time.
why 60 day dl carp when we already have 2 roster spots open on the 40 man roster from romero and komatsu being outed, and possibly a 3rd one about to open up with kmac
no need really to 60 day dl carp, we can still add whoever we want to 40 man
