Re: Aroldis Chapman and Yonder Alonso make BA's International League Top 20
GC (Newport, KY): Thoughts on Zack Cozart?
John Wagner: Sorry this is in the lightning round ... Both he and Valaika are intriguing. Cozart gets the nod because he is the shortstop. Cozart's hitting was a bit of a surprise, and if he can keep that going he'll be in MLB. Most years, Cozart would have been in the IL's Top 20. This year, 21-29 ...
Donnie (Cincinnati): Juan Francisco as a 3B?
John Wagner: Love the bat. I'd say yes, because he was pretty bad in the OF.
Todd Frazier (Louisville, KY): John, what did people tell you about my season this year?
John Wagner: Your brother Jeff said ... aw, shucks. I can't do it. You probably get enough of that grief at the dinner table. People told me that you struggled the first two months of the season (.194 on June 5) and spent the rest of the year catching up. You've got power, and you (and your brother) are terrific grinders, especially at the plate. They also said they want you to find a defensive position where you're comfortable and really show improvement
