Maalox would have a sign in Chase Field or maybe even naming rights if he was the general manager of the Diamondbacks and was responsible for trading Justin Upton.

The discarded Diamondbacks superstar is putting the wraps on a fantastic spring. While that doesn’t always translate to the regular season, expect Upton to keep it going for the Braves.

He was never fully appreciated here by management and Upton will do his best to make sure they regret it.

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers has said many a time he doesn’t think twice about moves once they are finished.

Then he is a better man than me.

I am the worst when it comes to buyer’s remorse. If we make a big purchase as a family I spend the next three days breaking down whether it was the right decision. I don’t just second guess; I 27 guess.

Maybe Towers can let his decisions go soon after they are made, but this one just might be different. In other words, if it was me the ulcer would be burning a hole in my gut.
