Putz said something to the effect of: "Bauer was humbled last year, and he probably deserves to be humbled a bit more"
No one on the Dbacks was interested in Trashing Upton on his way out, however.
Yeah, he seems like a jackass.
The opposite of Bauer might be Matt Harvey. He is a tough, no-nonsense guy and his teammates like him. He doesn't think it is funny that the Mets stink. He is there to win. He also said he likes pitching in front of big crowds. He will probably have to endure a poor team record and spotty crowds for at least one more year.
So for those in keeper leagues and you want a young pitcher, grab the guy with his head on straight.
