Re: Frazier in Game 2?
As great as it'd be to see Frazier starting, I'm in the Rolen camp here. Millions of words are spent arguing whether and how much post season experience matters. Maybe most can agree the answer is: some undetermined amount generally. Likewise on momentum, which maybe more would agree is important. Regrettably, those two work against Frazier here.
I think of him a bit like Bryce Harper here in my town. They both produced big time when needed this year. They're both super talented rookies who, barring injury, should have long productive seasons. The difference is that, as herculean what Frazier did this year, Harper put up bigger numbers and is peaking (or still climbing--we'll know shortly) now.
Do think Frazier will impact this ride, though. Either in a spot start day game like someone upthread speculates or from the bench.
These aren't the 2010 Reds. They will go...All the Way.
