Toms River’s Todd Frazier Has Had It With Umpires
Toms River native and New York Mets third baseman Todd Frazier has had just about all he can take from umpires this season.
Historically, Todd Frazier is not a complainer. He's a guy who's great in the clubhouse and is always ready to play hard and flash a smile, which makes him a favorite of teammates from all the teams he's played on.
But lately the balls and strikes calls have been steadily creating frustration for him, and he is now talking publicly about it. And he wants to go right to the top, saying he wants to meet with the baseball commissioner, according to The Score.
If you watched last night's game, you saw Todd voicing his displeasure with the home plate umpire and making no secret about it. He also met with umps after the weekend series in San Diego to let them know how he felt.
There has certainly been a level of frustration for all the Mets lately, since they recently haven't been living up to their great start this season, but Todd is certainly not one to complain or point fingers.
With all that in mind, I think baseball's brass should hear what a well respected veteran has to say about what he clearly thinks is a big problem with the work of certain umpires this year.
