(KSDK Sports) -- He is quickly becoming one of the most exciting Cardinals to watch and he is quickly becoming that player, who everytime he walks up to the plate, fans wills stop what they are doing to see if he might just hit one out.

Adams is hitting.  And hitting a lot.  For fun, you should go visit the Cardinals stat page on stlcardinals.com.  Adams is on the top of the list, not because his last name starts with an A, but because he is batting .643 with an on-base-percentage of .667, and a slugging percentage of 1.214. 

In four games, Adams has batted a mere 14 times but has collected 9 hits including two home runs, both in the last two days, and seven run's batted it. 

The big question will come soon.  What do the Cardinals do with Adams?  Admittedly, he is a power hitting first baseman with limited defensive skills.  He doesn't fit in the outfield, nor in any of the other infield positions.  If the National League had the designated hitter, the Cardinals would be set.
