The Mets stumbled into the All-Star Game with a 40-50 overall record, and unless the team comes out of the break in a sprint, trade rumors will continue to swirl. Mets third baseman Todd Frazier knows that drill all too well.
At the 2017 trade deadline, Frazier landed in the Bronx with the Yankees from the Chicago White Sox. Frazier didn't go far as a free agent, landing with the Mets on a two-year deal. Now, that deal is expiring, the 33-year-old infielder will continue to see his named linked to trades out of Queens.
But he doesn't seem to mind.
"I like hearing the rumor mill to be honest with you," Frazier told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM. "Because all my buddies hit me up all the time, 'I heard this on ESPN, I heard this on Sports Illustrated,' and I'm like, 'yeah, I heard it.' And he'll be like, 'so are you going?,'
'I'm like bro, I tell you guys this all the time, listen... until your agent comes and tells you something is in the works, or the GM, or the president, or coach, people are just writing stuff to get your riled up and guess what? They did their jobs.' So it makes for fun times."
Earlier this month, Frazier told the New York Post that he would be 'OK' with the Mets' trading him, if the team made the decision to do so.
