This just isn't so.
The Giants had Brandon Belt, Gregor Blanco, and Brandon Crawford in the starting lineup last year in the playoffs. Championship team.
When David Freese won the World Series MVP in 2011,
he had a .791 regular season OPS.
Frazier is still young, he may sink or swim, but he certainly is capable of being a regular on a championship team.
And while Frazier doesn't have Rolen's credentials, he is far more likely to be available on a consistent basis. And he has Hannahan, a good backup, to round out the position.
Third base is fine.
