I'm sure Reynolds said it.
But let's examine this for a minute. Is the idea that Frazier is a future third baseman -- and is already so adept at the position that he goes year after year without playing third?
In other words, is the idea that Frazier has mastered the hot corner to the point that he doesn't ever need to play the position? I would guess that even Brooks Robinson got in some minor league games at third before becoming Brooks Robinson.
I find it very puzzling and suprising that Frazier is going back to the outfield and continue to wonder what they really plan for him. It seems like they see him as a Mark DeRosa type player with no set major league position. You would think that the team's number 1 prospect according to BA would have a position by his AAA year.
