There is no almost. Upton had them take down all of his marketing swag they had all over chase field. He made it known through his agent that he would not be available to do any events of any kind, from media to charity and community. He was not going to wear a D-Backs uniform again. Still, you can probably blame the D-Backs for that. Sounds like he was just a bad fit and the relationship had broken off, with both sides being completely tired of the other. Apparently, it was basically the same with Trevor Bauer. They apparently only want a certain kind of player in the clubhouse and that does not include primmadonna or weirdos.

All of it is Dave Tippett's fault. He's the worst.
