The offense is dysfunctional because the parts aren't well meshed - out of balance - but Cozart is not the problem. Frazier really isn't either. And neither is defensively.
Frazier is above league average? What are you smoking, Jake? Out of 29 listed 3rd basemen, Frazier is listed 21 in BA. Out of 10 who qualify for awards etc., he is 9th out of 10 National leaguers. Above average? Come on. Let's call things as they are. Cozart and Frazier are a huge part of the problem.
