When is Frank going to get a start at 1B? Usually he gets a start or two by this point in the season. Unless Konerko goes on a real tear in the next two weeks, Frank is the obvious choice to start in NL parks.

Is Manuel just going to wait until we hit Phoenix to finally put him out there? I'd like to see him on the field once or twice before then.

There is an article in the Daily Herald today addressing this subject. According to Jerry "The Tinkerer" Manuel, Frank will begin playing in the field soon. From the looks of things, the plan is for Frank to get the majority of the playing time during National League games. If you would like to know more, you can look on the Daily Herald's web-site, under the article dealing with Paul Konerko's alleged health concerns.

If he hits better while playing first base, then by all means do it!

Get Frank in there and put Konerko on the DL. When he recovers, have him do a rehab stint with AAA Charlotte. At the All Star Break, make a decision based on Konerko's health and/or potential trade value. Frank hits better as a 1B anyway. If Frank tears his triceps again, then put Daubach at 1B. Konerko is killing us at the plate right now.

Agreed. Frank should start at first base. He has said he wants to play out there more, so why isn't Manuel giving him playing time? Frank hits better when he plays the field. Manuel should be aware of this. It has been well-documented ever since Frank started DH'ing full time. Jerry Manuel, WAKE UP!
