A very good Twitter exchange with Clint Frazier

Red Thunder struck out trying to get a new Twitter handle.

Remember Clint Frazier? The Yankees outfielder appeared in just 15 big league games last year. He suffered a concussion during Grapefruit League play, and the symptoms persisted throughout the entire summer. It was such a bummer, as a healthy Frazier would have received ample playing time down the stretch in the wake of Aaron Judge’s injury. The important thing, however, is to get the 24-year-old healthy and ready to go for next season.

When not preparing for spring training, Frazier has found other ways to keep himself busy. On Thursday night, he took to working on his personal brand. Red Thunder worked diligently to obtain the @Clint Twitter handle.

The incumbent wasn’t interested in bargaining.

That reply didn’t leave much room for negotiation, but Frazier remained undeterred. Unfortunately, @Clint wouldn’t budge. The user pointed to his long history on Twitter, essentially arguing that he got there first.

Frazier persisted, and called on his followers for advice. Red Thunder’s pursuit came up just short, however, as @Clint walked away with the last laugh.

That’s okay, Red Thunder. It’s not always about the end result, but about the friends you make along the way, right?
