Another long, eventful day in Mets Land ended with … Todd Frazier verbally destroyed by an ex-teammate?
You can not predict the chaos of Mets together for the 2016 White Sox, had to be separated in the middle of the third inning Monday night in the Mets 5-3 victory over the Nationals. As Frazier refused to discuss details, he said, "It was nothing," Eaton said much more than anything that devastated Frazier.
"He is very childish," said Eaton. The game is over, I'm leaving, I hear him a couple of times, I'm a 30-year-old man with two kids, I have a mortgage and everything and he wants to talk loud while he's away from home I have to be a man for this, I've tried to be patient with childishness, and as I said, that's what it is ̵
" The Piece "was Eatons 4-6-3 double, which took third place. As Eaton made his way to the right and a trainer took his glove, he and Frazier crossed paths as Frazier jogged from his third position to the Mets shelter behind the first base.
"He chirps all the way across the infield," Eaton said. "He really needs to like me because he wants to grab my attention, it seems like we come here every time to the city. He really cares what I think about him, I think. I do not know what his business is. I do not know if he wants to talk to me personally or visit me or what it is.
"… He is one of those who always say it so loud that you hear it but do not understand it. As I said, he makes himself a habit. I ignored him a couple of times when he was chirping and I got it to the point where … you have to be a man someday. So I turned around and had a few good words with him.
"It's funny, I approached him, he did not really want to approach me, but as soon as anyone stopped him, he was suddenly really impatient and tried to approach me, as I said, just to be Todd Frazier. What's new? "
Eaton said it was similar after a less intense local exchange last year, albeit less expansively. Asked Monday night if he was surprised that this feud was still going on, Eaton said, "Yes, absolutely."
