Re: Response to Rolen over Frazier
I think people expect Frazier to be average at the plate and pretty good defensively. His defense has improved a lot and they praised him on the broadcasts a lot during the Mets series, and deservedly so.
Todd wasn't even that great a hitter in the minors. He was average, which is why many were surprised he has done this well in the majors. Late bloomer? call it what you want.........but he is not horrible or great. He's average.
