you wanna bring up a 22 year old to sit on the bench and get 3 ABs per week instead of playing every day and gaining valuable experience in the minors?
my vote would be NO!
you DO NOT use 22-23 year olds as bench jockeys
Switch hitter, excelent contact, decent pop and glove (2b-3b). I love Cairo. But I'd rather see Henry up at this stage of Miggys career.=======================================
he's NOT gonna see any action at 2nd, and people are already screaming about Frazier not starting often enough at 3rd.
Frazier is beyond the age where he can be considered a prospect. You can argue that he has earned the starting third base job and maybe he has, but at his age he needs to be in the bigs even if he sits.
If he can prove he can come off the bench cold and play well, he will have a spot on the 25 man roster secured for next year even if we acquire another starting third baseman.
HRod, though, needs to play every day.
While I am in favor o doing something with Cairo, I don't see Rodriguez as the answer.
I'd rather trade for Mark Kotsay, who would give us veteran presence on the bench and is a LH bat. Plus he can play first.
"his glove is his downfall. The kids defense is horrible."================
Are you thinking of Hamilton? Rodriguez is okay at 2b and 3b. He's better than Frazier defensively.
