So what happened?
"Ah, that was nothing," Frazier said after the game. Nothing at all."
Pressed more on what began, Frazier remained firm.
"I said it was nothing, it really was nothing."
However, it was nothing for Eaton.
"Gosh knows what's going on in that guy's mind, but he's singing all the way to the infield and, I do not know, he really should like it because he seems to want to get my attention," Eaton said after the game. "It seems that every time we come to the city and he really cares about what I think of him, I guess I do not know what the deal is, I do not know if he wants to talk to me in person or a visit or what it is. As you said, he's always shouting me across the field, he's made a habit of doing it. "
Eaton begins to differ:
"I do not know what the deal is"
"He's always yelling at me through the infield, he's making a habit of that."

Eaton followed with Frazier in a response that lasted approximately two minutes, apparently saying that once he confronted him, Frazier started backing away.
"He's one of those guys who always says it out loud so you can hear it, but you can not understand it," Eaton said. "It's becoming a habit, I ignored it a couple of times when I said I was going to scream, and I had it to the point that, I'm not going to say the saying I want to say, you have to be a man. He turned around, I had some words of choice with him, it's funny, I was walking towards him and he really did not want to walk towards me, but as soon as someone held him back, he did, as suddenly he was really impatient to try to get close to me. Like I said, just being Todd Frazier, what's new?
When asked why Frazier was chipring, Eaton said the Mets' infielder was "Just being himself, it's the most basic thing I can say."
Eaton added that he was "absolutely" surprised by that, and that Frazier was "very childish".
"I'm walking with my head down, the play is over, I'm leaving … I'm a 30-year-old man with two children, I have a mortgage and everything and he wants to talk out loud." since he is coming out of the field. At the end of the day, I have to be a man about it, and I tried to be patient with childhood. It is what it is. I have to face it with time. "
While fireworks on the field between Frazier and Eaton failed on Monday night, the Mets and Nats have three games this week. Seat belt.
