Sure, anything is possible but if Frazier was a Cardinal, redszoners would have no problem dropping 'roider insinuations.
CE isn't being dogmatic. Frazier is having the best season of his professional carreer (above rookie ball) as a major leager with little service time. CE is being a healthy skeptic based upon past experience.
