Who would you rather have?  I have Segura and thinking about acquiring Adams.  They were ranked side-by-side in Kevin Goldstein's preseason top 101, and both had very good minor league years and poor performances in MLB in limited time.

Given that they are both unknowns on top of the depth at 1B and the lack of depth for MIs, I'd go with Segura.
You're television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. And the daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You're madness, Diana. Virulent madness. And everything you touch dies with you. But not me. Not as long as I can feel pleasure, and pain... and love.

I like Segura's potential, especially if he moves up in the order. Adams looked shaky last year and will have to be traded to get any value. There is just no room for him in St. Louis, while Segura basically has a full time role locked up.
Bring back Ray!

Segura for sure, and I say this as someone who has Matt Adams' rights.  Segura has a job and should get you a pretty good baseline of production you can predict, Adams is more of a mystery.  That said, this is the exact type of situation where they guy will explode for 31 bombs and we all will be eating crow.

love Segura long term.  high average hitter with gap power and some speed.  I can see him moving up to the #2 spot if he'll take some walks.
