Even after a win, the New York Mets don’t seem happy. More specifically, Todd Frazier is firing back at a beat reporter on Twitter.
Following Thursday’s matinee victory over the San Diego Padres, Frazier took to Twitter to call out MLB.com beat reporter Anthony DiComo.
Another useless stat by you. What else is new. I actually did strikeout too. So get your calculator out and give the fans the percentages that they really don’t care about. Keep up the good work though.

This isn’t the first time a Met has been—unhappy with a reporter. Recently, Noah Syndergaard went at DiComo after a brutal extra-innings loss in San Francisco.
This is what you go with after a tough 16 inning marathon loss? Anthony, I have been nothing but respectful and professional with you over the years. If you had issue w me, talk to me in person like a man. This is below you, you’ve changed our relationship in 1 tweet. Congrats

Do Syndergaard and Frazier have a legitimate gripe with DiComo? Eh. Maybe a little bit, but it feels like they’re nitpicking. If anything, Syndergaard has a much better reason to be angry.
With all that said, these Twitter spats are moments that we will focus on now, but will likely forget as the season progresses.
Following a tough loss in Chicago, Callaway erupted on Britton and Vargas followed that up by physically challenging the reporter in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.
The aftermath of the incident was even more embarrassing than the altercation itself. Callaway refused to apologize for his actions. But then after he “got some feedback” he came back out to reporters, with his tail tucked between his legs, and apologized. Vargas still hasn’t apologized for his role in the ordeal.
The Mets have underachieved on the field and aren’t doing themselves any favors off the field. With the trade deadline approaching and the playoffs out of reach, tensions seem to be running high in the locker room.
It’s a tough year to be on the Mets beat, huh?
