    Well, we know the Pirates have a higher TWTW, so I am assuming they also have a very high FR (Fire Rating).

    The Reds have not had this low of a TWTW since 2011, so I am guessing their FR is also rapidly declining.

    I definitely think hitting a human being with a hard object at 90+ mph that can injure will increase both of these stats.

    Frazier has been known to swoon for 2+ months in the minors. I'm not seeing anything different from him than what could have been expected. We're still lucky to have him. Perhaps get Hannahan some more starts and take the pressure off Frazier.

    When looking at his offense and defense, he's pretty much a league average starter. That's a check off of the list, not a problem.

    Yeah, I just don't get the "Frazier is a problem" camp. All players have off streaks. Overall his defense has been very solid ( I feel better with him on third than Hannahan, or the ghost of Rolen) and his offensive numbers overall are okay. I'll take him over any but a half dozen third baseman in the game right now. Third is a pretty weak position across the game.

    Frazier is turning into another Bruce on here. When he's slumping somebody makes a thread ripping him, and when he's on a hot streak somebody makes a thread praising him. Quality discussion.

    I don't know if I'd call a career .769 bat "awful." He has his warts and he's not perfect, but who right now do the Reds have that would be better?

    He's had a good week:

    .316/.350/.842/1.192

    Attacking that first pitch worked well last night.

    And he's looked so much less uncomfortable at the plate. He seems to have cut back on those awkward swings at balls way outside of the zone. Hopefully this continues.

    I think it was the simple thing of breaking that horrific slump. After a while it gets in a players head. That certainly seemed to be the case with Todd.

    Since August 13: .292/.346/.708/1.054 with 3 HRs and 7 ribs

    He hadn't hit a bomb since July 1...now he's hit three in less than a week. Good time to get on a hot streak.

    I'd love to know what Pete Rose told him. It's been since he chatted with Rose that he's come out of his funk.
