Frazier looks like he can provided decent production out of the 3B spot as a replacement for Rolen.
I'd put Left Field and the bench way ahead of Frazier in terms of problems for the Reds.
I agree 100%. I'll buy Frazier as a regular third baseman with a decent steady career over the next few seasons. Not every guy has to be a stud to be valuable. If Todd gives the Reds league average play at third until Rodriguez and/or Vidal are ready to compete for the position then he's valuable as heck. Seems every pundit wants to make it a case for every player being either a superstar or else he's a bust.
