As the Atlanta Braves head into the offseason, it looks as though one of their primary goals is going to be finding a team to take on Dan Uggla and some of his $26 million contract over the next few years. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Braves GM Frank Wren is going to explore the possibility of offloading Uggla during the GM meetings next week, as well as finding a starting pitcher, which may well be necessary to replace Tim Hudson. Whether Wren’s two goals will be possible remains to be seen: Uggla is certainly a difficult sell, with the 33-year-old coming off the worst season of his career by pretty much any measure: his  83 OPS+ was comfortably a career low, as was his .303 wOBA, which ranked in the bottom 20 qualifying players in all of baseball – not what the Braves wanted for $13 million. Uggla has never really hit for average, with a career .246 mark and .287 his career high, but 2013′s .179 was still shockingly low. All the second baseman really did well was continue...

  • Pleeze unload Uggla any way at all, P.U. etc.
