Dan Uggla has been intolerably bad
He’s hitless again today, with the requisite strikeout. In his past 29 games he’s hit .113 with 39 strikeouts. Uggs is on a pace for 189 K’s, which would break his Braves-franchise record set a year ago by 33.
I’m not sure I want FW signing any more expensive free agents. Every one he’s acquired has been a bust, including Uggla, who’s due $39 million over the next three years.
Uggla was acquired in a trade, but then Wren quickly signed him to a long-term contract. So while not a free agent signing, it was the signing of a new player to a major contract. And so far, the results have been less than stellar.
