    Re: Frazier

    This board never passes on an opportunity to bash on Brandon Phillips.

    Actually this thread apparently is about bashing Votto. Not a single flipping post of profusive praise of him up to this point. What the heck?

    The age difference is a factor, which is why I stated "at this point in their careers". Frazier's 5 years of maturity should translate into a quicker adjustment to the "sophomore slump" than it would for Robinson, in theory. But, Frazier isn't showing any signs of coming out of the slump and seems determined to go through the rest of the season without making the adjustments, similar to what a 23 or 24 year old might do. It still wouldn't be a bad idea to send him down for two weeks and let Hanahan play 3rd Base. Don't care who takes his place for two weeks. Looks like Ludwick will be here anyway shortly, pushing Frazier's spot in the batting order down, also.

    The best remedy for Todd is to play him at home and sit him on the road. Similar to a lot of Reds.

    Someone brings up his OPS along with Cozart and Frazier, as being bad, which it is and he is being bashed?

    Man you are one whiny paranoid Phillips defender.

    Phillips was hit more than a month ago.....it might have been an issue for a little time...I think he is just concentrating on driving people in, which is good....but seems to have lost his way any other time (No runners on, leading off an inning)

    Re: Frazier

    Because Frazier's defense has been very much above average, he's still been an above average player despite his offensive struggles. He has a good chance of still being 3 wins or better by the end of the season. That's certainly not going to kill the team.

    Phillips was hit 2 full months ago. He missed 5 days.

    Which doesn't really add-up because he's an awful hitter and part of the problem, not the answer.

    Re: Frazier

    If Todd Frazier did this, Redszone would forever have the hugest man crush on him:

    http://wapc.mlb.com/play?content_id=29337531

    As it is, redzoners can only admire and pine for Seager from afar...

    And no this post should not be interpreted as somehow bashing Phillips.

    Re: Frazier

    his numbers arenīt that bad (little bit below league avg.) => his defence is above average => heīs average on 3rd

    the problem with frazier is that heīs also very "streaky" and he looks like someone that got a bat in the hand and tries his first swing...

    he swings at the worst pitches sometimes and canīt see or judge the pitches right... he got the same problems last year (for example his homeron while he lost his bat)

    at the moment he needs to sit some games (because itīs a mental issue) or see some time in aaa

    No different than what we have seen from time to time in Heisey, although not this bad. Cozart, Stubbs. If there is anything that clearly needs to be done is examining who is developing these hitters in the minors.

    Remembering Phillips and the HBP that sidelined him multiple games...I still want revenge. That whole series was bushleague BS. Pirate batters should have been bleeding that game.
