Trade targets: who might possibly be on first for the Cardinals?

The St. Louis Cardinals took a big hit to their lineup this week, losing first baseman Matt Adams to a torn quad muscle for most (likely all) of the season. The Cards don’t really have an in-house replacement for him (unless you count Mark Reyonlds, and… you probably shouldn’t count Mark Reynolds), which leaves them with a fairly large hole to fill. The Cardinals currently...
