I wouldn't be cutting bait. I'd be putting him in a position like he was last year when he was an asset to the team. Use his versatility and power when needed. Lets not kid ourselves. The guy had meh minor league numbers. His D leaves more to be desired no matter how you spin it. He has contact issues versus anything that is above average pitching. Hannahan has a way better glove. Not just marginal, more plate discipline, and averages a higher obp. Lets all get off of the Frazier is the next big thing bandwagon. He's a very nice piece. Probably not an all star. Lets platoon he and hannahan at third and he and Paul/lutz in left. He's get plenty of time and his bat wouldn't be exposed to above average pitching. Until yesterday he was hitting like .088 on the road. It's probably .1something now. Yes I know it was better last year. At the same time everyone is pointing to the toughness if the pitching faced on the road this year. This proves my point. Against above average pitching he is lost. I know it's early but you have to do better than that. I don't get why guys get do up in arms when I question why hannahan doesn't get more time but say that hanigan needs to play over Mez. I think if Mez got half the chance as Frazier he'd be a far more valuable player than Frazier.
