A similar decision took 5 years to make regarding EE; I'm hoping the current FO has decided that kind of protracted wishful thinking is a thing of the past.
I see the same thing you do about how they have dealt with Todd and normally I'd probably agree. Here's the rub however, isn't it just more plausible that they kept Francisco at 3rd because it would have been more difficult to move him anywhere else than the more athletic Frazier? I mean Todd in my eyes is a victim of circumstances (Not his but someone else's), that just makes more sense than suggesting Todd can't play 3rd. I could certainly be wrong but I think the odds are in favor of this scenario which is where I have pushed all my chips to.
