Whence comes the "Frankie is lazy" accusations?

Comment after comment on various boards / blogs make the accusation / insinuation ..... "Frankie is lazy"

Some say Frankie's had long enough to get back in form.  Others say the Twins brought Frankie to the big club rather than leave him in Rochester because he's lazy & Gardy, et al. wanted him close so they could keep after him.  He's been accused of being "fat". 

Basically, every explanation has been given for his suckage other than "that was a bad injury, he hasn't played for 18 months & he's trying to pitch and change his mechanics at the same time."

What's the deal here?  How big is the group in the fan base that believes Frankie's some sort of malingerer??? Do they have some sort of factual basis for believing it - something Frankie's said or done, something Gardy, et al. have said or done?  What is it?
