Re: Why the Love for Frazier?
I went back and looked at some reports on Frazier to confirm that I'm not the only one who things his bat is just average at a corner spot. Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus says Frazier has true middle-of-the-order potential with his bat, no matter where he plays. Baseball America sees him as a 25 homerun guy, which I agree with. He's never going to be a superstar but he does a lot of things well. He reminds me a bit of Kevin Youkilis. I think he'll settle in nicely as a .375+ OBP/.500+ SLG type of player who will draw plenty of walks and hit roughly 25 homers... give or take a couple.
