Right. I think they really feel that Francisco has two spots. 3B and 1B. Given what else we have, 3B is going to be the spot he is going to be hoped to figure out and with his offensive potential they are going to give him all the chances in the world to get it.
Frazier is a guy that they feel can play adequately just about anywhere they put him and because of that the Reds put him wherever they had a spot knowing that he can play there.
