Is Dan Uggla Worse This Year Than He Was The First Half Of Last Year?

What's Uggla's contract status? Is he in line to replace Jones at 3rd next year?

Uggla signed a huge deal when the Braves traded for him before last season. And no. He won't be moving to 3rd next season. Not nearly good enough defensively for that.

Martin Prado is in line to start at 3B next season with the Braves finding someone else to play LF.

yep, and if he were a centerfielder it would be a huge problem. He is not the best fielding 2nd basemen in the league or anything but he is alot better here than he was in Fla.

How many errors has Freeman saved him on bad throws? How many errors has Freeman saved everyone. Freeman makes everyone look better than they really are. Uggla is better than he has been given credit for but he's still a liability defensively.

He's not hitting homers or batting well which is what we paid him for. But he is 4th in OBP. 2nd in runs and 2nd in RBIs

Actually Uggla is 5th in OBP and 3rd in RBIs and Heyward is only 1 behind him. Uggla is also 7th in OPS out of the regulars. So where is Uggla once was 1st in all that stuff that's how far he's fallen.

Hes 4th unless you count Ross. Even being 3rd in RBIs and 2nd in slruns scored....there's no argument that isn't good

That's the job of a first baseman.

Were stuck with this scrub for 3 more years...UGGGGHHHH!!!

Well I can't believe we have Nate McLouth 2.0 on the team. Who saw this coming? All this dude ever did for the Marlins was absolutely crush the Braves, especially at Turner Field, and now he can't even make contact half the time and the other half it's weak foul pop outs.
