Adam Eaton calls Todd Frazier ‘childish’ for chirping at him
Adam Eaton called out Todd Frazier for being “childish” during Monday’s game between their teams.
Eaton and Frazier had to be separated between innings during the New York Mets’ 5-3 win over the Washington Nationals. Frazier apparently had been chirping at Eaton, leading Eaton to confront the infielder between innings:

After the game, both players were asked what happened. Frazier declined to get into it, saying it was nothing. Eaton said that Frazier was chirping at him all game so he finally said something.

The two used to be teammates on the Chicago White Sox. Their feud dates back to last season when Frazier said stuff to Eaton over a slide by the Nationals outfielder that left Phillip Evans injured. Eaton said then that Frazier was doing the tough guy act.
“When he usually talks or chirps, usually he says it just loud enough that you can hear him but you can’t understand him. So I’ll just leave it at that,” Eaton said last year, via MASN Sports.
It sounds like Frazier was doing more of the same Monday and then nothing happened when Eaton confronted him. Much ado about nothing.
