    Todd Frazier

    Now up to (according to ESPN) .295/.355/.555 for the year. That's an All-Star year for anyone let alone a rookie.

    Just what do we have in this guy? Obviously, assuming Rolen does retire as expected, he's the regular 3B next year. Is he a perrenial all-star? Maybe something more? Or maybe less?

    It's just a shame he won't be an everyday player when Votto is back.

    He will. Dusty will find a way. Either at third or in right. At least I hope so.

    Re: Todd Frazier

    I want to believe he's always going to be this good, but it's unlikely to be the case. No matter what, he is definitely in the starting lineup come Opening Day 2013. Can only guess beyond that.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    It's going to be really frustrating if Rolen is playing over him in the playoffs, and all indications are that he will be.

    If Rolen stays healthy and continues doing as well as he is then you can't very well take him out of there either.

    Since coming back from the disabled list, Rolen has OPS'd .879. Throw in his defense, and he's my starter for the playoffs.

    I agree with this 100%. Frazier will get his at-bats for the rest of the regular season. Votto will need rest, Rolen only plays 4 days a week and Luddy needs a day or two a week. Frazier will be in the lineup most days. If Rolen can keep up what hes done in the second half I want him starting 3rd in the playoffs. If we face a tough righty Frazier can get the nod. Dusty will find ways. Isnt it good though to have a guy that is having a tremendous year yet we have to find at-bats for him. A very good problem to have Id say.

    Re: Todd Frazier

    IIRC, he was talked about as a possible future super utility guy when he was still in the minors. And now he is one. But, even if he is the starting 3rd baseman for the next 5+ years I think he'll be underrated (ESPECIALLY nationally).

    Re: Todd Frazier

    I have a grand idea...let Rolen have another stint on the 15 day DL once Votto is back and playing every day. Let Rolen get about a week or so of AB's in right before the playoffs start, ensuring he is fresh. I am afraid if Rolen plays out the rest of the season we will see a beat up a sore Scotty.

    Re: Todd Frazier

    Is Frazier this good? I don't really think so. In 2012 his BABIP is .339. His BABIP hasn't matched that in the minor leagues at any level he has reached 190 PA's. So Frazier is probably experiencing a bit of luck.

    With that said, his power is absolutely real. If he settles in as a .270/.335/.500 guy, that is pretty darn good still.

    Re: Todd Frazier

    I'm really impressed with Frazier. But I'd rather have Rolen playing third defensively than Frazier. And Rolen's bat has been solid since the AS Break. I'm really happy for Scott.

    Stick Frazier in the OF and let Stubbs sit. Obviously, move Bruce to CF.

    Re: Todd Frazier

    If Ludwick walks, the Reds sign a LH LF to platoon with Frazier and Rolen plays 3b next year. It's one scenario.

    I think Ludwick will be our starting LF next year.

    That depends on Ludwick. He might just insist on a new deal or he'll go somewhere else.
