Once you eliminate Paul, the normal alternative is Cozart because Dusty wants Frazier hitting lower down for power production.
The SS hits second thing is funny, but certainly Dusty intended BP to hit second this year.
an you imagine if DD was still here and was the starting SS?
Dusty would be forced to bat 3 LH or he would have to move Votto up to 2nd or basically go insane and write over and over.... SS bats 2nd, C bats 8th. All work and no play make Dusty go crazy.
