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.

"...and woe betide fateful curiosity should it ever succeed in peering through a crack in the chamber of consciousness, out and down into the depths, and thus gain an intimation of the fact that humanity, in the indifference of its ignorance, rests on the pitiless, the greedy, the insatiable, the murderous."

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.

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.
