Makes perfect sense. Keep the guys that get on base BEHIND Joey Votto. And make sure they get the fewest at-bats.
To be fair, Cozart has a .415 OBP in the last 15 days. I'll be the first to tell you that I was not thrilled about him being moved to the lead-off spot. He really has looked like a very different, more comfortable guy there the last two weeks, though.
Don't know if he's turned a bit of a corner or is just on a hot streak, but I'm not sure I'd drop him in the lineup until we know for sure.
I value OBP a tremendous amount when I watch baseball and put together my fantasy lineups. All the same, I'm not sure I like Frazier and Hanigan at the top of our lineup. If anything, I'd stay let Todd hit cleanup a few times to see how he responds, but know that's a lot of pressure on a rookie. I have to admit, I like a little pop towards the bottom of the lineup with Frazier in there today.
