The Upton Question
Justin Upton made his return to Chase Field over the weekend. How did the crowd react? For every preconceived opinion, we have a supporting Tweet from the objective members of the press!
Justin Upton getting booed by the #Dbacks fans. Didn't really expect that.— Dave Zorn (@davezorn72) June 7, 2014
Fans give ex-#Dbacks Upton a mixed reaction---more cheers---when introduced before his first plate appearance— Craig Grialou (@CraigAZSports) June 7, 2014
But at the end of the series, the reaction was clear. Near-total apathy.
By the 3rd game of the series 1 fan cheered and 1 fan booed when Justin Upton came to the plate— Jeff Summers (@azjazzyj) June 8, 2014

Premonitory Tweet of the Week
I know hash tags are for topics and not opinions, but #LeaveCahillinColorado— Derek Montilla (@Cap_Kaveman) June 6, 2014
Diamondbacks 2, Braves 5
It was Beach Night at Chase. A little awkward this happened to coincide with the whole "70th anniversary of D-Day" thing. But let's, er, soldier on regardless, shall we?
As one of the replies put it, "And THAT"s what you guys notice?"
Diamondbacks 4, Braves 3
Guy next to me at the @dbacks games is wearing a George Washington wig and passed out drunk. His friends are starting to mess with him.— Allie Mandel (@AllieMandel) June 8, 2014
