Phillies pitcher Jake Arrieta hit Mets third baseman Todd Frazier with a pitch on Saturday night. It didn’t sit well with Frazier and he had some words for Arrieta.
Frazier would eventually be ejected for his continued chirping about being hit with the off speed pitch.
Tension rising in New York.

Arrieta, who hit three batters during the 6-5 loss to the Mets, was asked about Frazier’s temper tantrum. He calmly threatened to put a dent in Frazier’s skull.
"Frazier's not happy about it he can come see me. I'll put a dent in his skull."

That’s probably going to cost him a few dollars, but it’s a great line and well worth it. The Phillies-Mets rivalry just got turned up a couple of notches.
