    You may be right about Costanzo, but LF is by far Frazier's best position and the only one I've seen him play where I'd be comfortable with him every day.

    This team needs another bat that can hit RHP. Costanzo is the best bet on the roster. If Heisey gets going he may help, but he's not going to get going with this Crazy platoon of 2 RH Hitters. Two weeks in AAA to get his stroke and then back to LF every day in the big leagues for an extended audition. Ludwick may be the odd man out.

    I think a player who is below average defensively hurts a team far worse than a player who is below average offensively. Ignoring that leads to losing seasons.

    We may not have seen it in Cincy, but Todd is a VERY solid 3rd baseman. He never got a constant shot there because of them wanting to try out other guys there, but they were very comfortable with his defense at third. It was Francisco's inability to move elsewhere that caused Todd to get moved everywhere.

    That walk by Jay is why I'm very encouraged by him this year.

    Well that was interesting. Pop out to what should've been second, Harper calls him off and has to dive.

    They need to hit Bruce behind Bruce so that he gets pitched to

    Nice play by Joey to get Harper. He made sure he got in front of that ball instead of reaching like the one he made the E on.

    I didn't know we were discussing players who are below average defensively. Is Frazier going to be below average defensively in LF? I simply don't know that. Will the CF we should make it our first priority to acquire also be below average defensively? Again, I'm not sure how anyone knows that.

    Not from what I've read and heard, and certainly not from what I've watched. Agree to disagree I guess.
