Still doesnt look like an athlete but he has lost weight. Needs injuries to be considered relevant this season

I would think that they would start him off at AAA just so he can continue to develop and get some regular PT instead of riding the pine. When that injury/etc happens, then bring him up.

He is tearing it up this spring. Expected to come off the bench and be relent in NL Only and deeper formats.

Depending on his playing time, Fat Adams (no longer fat, btw), should smack 20 or so HR's. This isn't his first rodeo.

It's not that, he's on a budget, not going to buffet 7 days a week, just 6 days.

"A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them. " - Leonard Louis Levinson

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Maybe because it is all garbage lol posts about his weight. How about we talk about how he is a huge late round sleeper who could end up being a great source of power if and when injury strikes a brittle cardinals team? Or should I make another lame fat joke?

We get it, you think he's fat, but so is Prince, or panda, and a number of established MLB players, point is, Adams does offer pop and a decent BA, and potential playing time in that potent O has value, and could be very useful for those of us in dynasty and deep bench keeper leagues. I thought this was why we came here, But coming here and reading nothing but fat jokes does a disservice to these forums.
This kid has a ton of potential, and for those who are looking for potential sleepers that use rotoworld forums for information, like I do at times, it would be a shame to turn this thread into the same joke thread it was last year, having to scroll through post after post of nothing but fat jokes, or into another L. Cain thread, filled with nothing but utterly useless drivel. Whats the point? If all you want is to have some fun, I suggest opening a thread for the mere purpose of saying whatever you want about any player you want, but leave the player threads for what they're intended. Thanks.

Ronny Cedeno being cut yesterday essentially ensures Adams is going to make the team.
They've already been saying that Holliday is going to get a day off a week, against his will if that's what it takes. Beltran is going to get a day, and Craig will get a day off here and there.

So if Adams finds his way into the starting lineup 3/7 days, and gets a PH in almost every other game, that's around 16 ABs a week.
That would measure out to around 350-375 ABs this year.

If that all stands up... I'm sure Holliday won't get as much time off as they're saying. He's not going to allow that, unless he's hurt.
But Craig is more comfortable in the OF to begin with, so he goes to OF and Adams at 1B if there's any injury or day off.


Deep leagues, grab him IMO

I am just wondering if he is worth a late round grab for a UTIL or 1B spot to platoon him when he starts and then wait for injury? His power potential is legit.

Depends on the specifics of each individual league. Since baseball has a gamut variations, the answer is, depends on your league.
