Uggly #Braves Uggla has 15 strikeouts (in 39 at-bats) and five errors this spring, with one extra-base hit — David O’Brien (@ajcbraves) March 13, 2013 Advertisements Share this:TumblrEmailFacebookRedditTwitterGoogleLike this:Like Loading... Related 5 thoughts on “Uggly” Add yours The scary thing is, that although he dipped back below the Mendoza line last night, he’s actually played better the last week. FW has been a good GM but signing Uggla, now 33, to that five-year extension was an epic fail. THREE more years. How many months of .175 hitting and porous defense will it take before he gets benched? I suspect it will be July at the earliest. At this point, do you consider Pastornicky as the starting 2nd baseman? Offensively, I don’t think he would provide better results, but I think he could be a lot better defensively. With our lineup, I think we could afford to put Uggla’s bat on the bench; with a defensive wildcard at 3rd base, I’d feel much better knowing the rest of our infield was solid defensively. Uggla’s contract means we’re stuck with him. Hard to sit a guy making $13 mil but they may not have a choice. Will be a long while before that happens.
