    Todd Frazier appreciation thread

    I just thought I would make this because ever since he came up last year he's been absolutely fantastic for this team. I know his numbers right now are not sustainable, but he is just a nice story for this team because he's such a hard-working likeable player that cares more about the crest on his jersey than the name on his back (or so it seems).

    Also, he can absolutely crush baseballs.

    Not to brag (mainly to brag), I did not predict regression from Todd this season. You're all free to ask Todd's forgiveness and join me.

    That homerun last night to the upper deck was CRUSHED. I couldn't believe that when I saw it.

    Isn't the NL third baseman pool pretty weak? All Star is a possibility.

    Me either. I recognized the possibility, but he just seems like the hard-working type that makes it work.

    I will repost this tweet in this thread :

    Spoke to some Angels today who were really impressed by the Reds' Todd Frazier; he's 11-for-22 so far this season.

    Re: Todd Frazier appreciation thread

    Anyone want to be brave and venture a guess at what his season could look like?

    Going all Nostradamus here:

    HR: 31
    Runs: 75
    RBI: 87
    SB: 9

    AVG: .286
    OBP: .372
    SLG: .521

    WAR: 5.6

    Yeah, one week shouldn't skew our expectations too much.

    I have two fantasy teams this year. Frazier is on both. I had faith.

    I agree and don't think that's so bad from a second year player. I like him a lot. He can mash the ball when he's hot. My hope is he doesn't cool off ever, but I think Doug is right.

    Those would've been my numbers for him this year before it started. And I think that is still a pretty good 3rd baseman.

    But, he's been so white hot that even if he hits that way the rest of the year his overall numbers will be a little higher.

    Considering he has good power, is playing in GABP, and it hasn't heated up yet, I think he might have more power than I thought, so I would alter it a little.

    .265/.335/.490

    He's hot and he hasn't even started throwing his bat at the ball yet.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
