I've stated all second half of the season that they will have to platoon Francisco with Rolen next season. Francisco gives you a LHed power bat, so it works for the most part. Francisco's defense isn't as bad as people make it out to be. He was voted best defensive third baseman one year in the minor leagues in their league (can't remember what year). So he's not THAT bad.
I'd be fine with that platoon. I just think it puts Cairo as the odd man out.
Well, Cairo is a bench guy for the most part.
I really would like to see if JF is up to it. Rolen looks stiff as a board in the field and
at the plate. It looks like he can't hit anything low in the zone right now. To be honest, I had no idea. I mean, I knew the power had evaporated, but damn.
Frazier should also be a possibility. I don't know why they've jerked him around playing him everywhere. He always seemed like a future 3B to me.
But, yeah. Let's give Francisco a real shot. Speaking of which, I dunno why he didn't PH tonight.
