“‘I like it here,’’ Frazier said when asked about his first year in the Windy City, via the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘‘Certainly don’t miss some of the things over there. And I’m really enjoying the way that this clubhouse has maneuvered. It seems like there’s a lot of guys in here that are just accepting of everyone. And it’s been really good for me.’’
‘‘And you had to be a cookie-cutter version to be on that team. If not, then you were, like, a really bad distraction, it seemed like. So I don’t miss being told how I had to look for the last five years.’’
Prior to Friday night’s game between the Cubs and Yankees, manager Aaron Boone was asked about his former player’s harsh comments. He decided to take the high road with his response.
“I think the injury bug got him. Obviously, the concussion got him a couple years ago – and he had to battle through some things that wouldn’t let him get on the field as much as we or he would’ve liked,” Boone said. “When you’re a young player, that can certainly stifle your development or hurt your development, so I think that was probably the biggest factor.”
