I guess because Frazier had a day off yesterday, and Frasier is not a butcher, Dusty is just giving Todd a little bit of respect.
Same for not DHing Choo.
Dusty is big on having confidence in his players. It kind of sends the wrong message to DH a guy to slightly optimize the defense (in Dusty's mind).
Not saying this is the right way or wrong way, but I'm guessing that's the reasoning.
Plus, you got to figure that Frazier and Choo are going to be playing the field in the playoffs. Might as well give them all the reps possible.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
