Sometimes, players are traded while they’re sleeping, or working out, or eating…but rarely are they traded while they’re in the john.
Clint Frazier was the “mystery caller” on MLB Network’s “Hot Stove” on Monday, and told Harold Reynolds and Matt Vasgersian that he was notified of his trade to New York when he got back from using the restroom one morning.
“Honestly, man, I just got up to go to the bathroom one morning,” Frazier said, “and when I got back I checked my phone and I had a text from my friend within the agency that said ‘Call me.'”
It’s around the 1:50 mark below.
I wonder if they also told him he’d be heading to the Yankees with Justflush Sheffield.
