You're right, as usualThat's ridiculous. I've seen all the stats, bring 'em on. Nothing you've posted refutes Frazier's splits. The stats back up what my eyes see and that is that his power drops significantly against RHP. Frazier isn't an on base guy, if he's not hitting for power, he's really not helping that much. If his slugging drops off against RHP, that's a big problem for a player with his profile. He needs less exposure to the types of pitchers who give him trouble. It's not the worst thing in the world. He will still be a valuable player. I'd rather have him for 400 PAs at .825 OPS and let a lefty in there against the RHP that give him trouble, than have him for 700 PAs at .725 OPS for the sake of saying he's an every day player.
Good teams have guys like him and good teams that win don't let them flounder unnecessarily. The problem isn't Frazier as much as Hannahan is a poor choice to pair with him. The Reds need a better LH bat to play 3B some of the time. Eric Chavez would be my choice but he probably wouldn't want to stray too far from the west coast. Get some one of that caliber who can play 75 games or so and let Frazier get starts in RF and 1B and some LF as well as 50% to 60% the starts at 3B.

vs RHP 300 PAs .253/.320/.385/.705
Wish all you want about Frazier, but he's been splitty since he's been in the organization. What we're seeing is no different than what he's always been. Hope he changes at age 28. I'd plan differently.
