Francisco is playing third fine for the Braves.
Must admit that Frazier's defense has far exceeded my expectations, at least so far this season.
It's a tough call, I don't think the Reds made a big mistake.
But some of the adverse comments about Francisco on this site have been over the top IMO. He is a very tough hitter against RHP. Against Arroyo at GABP? I'm glad he's not playing tonight.
