Todd Frazier seems to tick a lot of people off. And the latest is NOT a dude you want to be ticking off.
Jake Arrieta and the Phillies were taking on Frazier and the Mets last night, and Arrieta did not have it. His command was terrible, as it sometimes is, and he couldn’t locate his pitches. Which means sometimes, he’s gonna spin one that misses inside. But instead of just taking the offspeed pitch off the arm and heading to first base, Frazier seemed to be ticked that the umpire wasn’t doing anything about it:
Tension rising in New York.

Whatever it was, Frazier sufficiently annoyed the home plate umpire that he got tossed.
After the game, Arrieta did not hold back in letting Frazier know that he, too, was annoyed:
"Frazier's not happy about it he can come see me. I'll put a dent in his skull."
