Frazier is playing because Rolen is out, Frazier a .260 AAA hitter that translated into a .236 ML hitter. Why on earth is Juan Francisco still in AAA. He has had a better season than Frazier or Yonder.
Juan Francisco has the best arm in the International League according to Baseball America. Maybe the Reds are afraid Francisco will prove he is better than Rolen even when Rolen is healthy and they do not want the media fallout
I just think it is funny that heisey is no longer a young player because now someone younger is up. Dusty is not anti young players, he is pro his guys whether they be old like Rolen, Cairo or young like Stubbs, Cueto, Bruce, Bailey, Votto, Leake. I am not saying this is right or wrong but, I just think you have to ignore an awful lot of reality to determine he is anti young player. Not to mention he played the only young player, Cozart, he was given before the latest wave of youngsters. While I am not crazy about Dusty, even though I don't blame him for every single loss, I am far more frustrated with Walt this year. The Hernandez thing was the last straw. Outside of Rolen and Cairo, what has walt done. And for those of you who believe dusty is the single worst manager in the history of the world, why doesn't walt see what you all see and fire dusty.
