Matt Adams trying his best to make Cardinals fans forget about Allen Craig

With Allen Craig injured, the Cardinals offense has been sputtering.  Well, Matt Adams is trying to change all that.

Adams went 3 for 5 tonight, clubbing his 15th homer and driving in 3 to help lift the Cardinals to victory 7-6 over the Brewers.

He is now hitting .371 over his last 10 games with 5 homers and 12 Rbi's. 

Don't get me wrong, the Cardinals would still love to get a healthy Craig back, and quickly.  But, Adams has allowed the Cardinals to survive his absence.  The team has actually gone 10-5 since Craig's injury and increased their NL Central lead to 2 games.

With 15 homers and 48 rbi's in just 264 at bats, its would be very interesting to see what Adams can do in a full-time role.

I think the Cardinals will do everything in their power to give Adams that chance in 2014.
