Get in there Uggla. My butt hurts after drafting you last year.
Despite what you've read Dan Uggla is not dead. Do not inhale the white smoke. Put away the black ensemble. Do not shed a tear. Fake experts across the world have buried a man alive. Much like Dianne Feinstein these so-called experts fear returning veterans. But we fantasy gods love Dan Uggla. Technically we love cheap bounce back campaigns, and Uggla fits the bill. If you're a million dollar manager, this if for you. Cheers.
Howie Kendrick? Dustin Ackley? Danny Espinosa and his broken shoulder? Why are these scrubs selected before Uggla? Apparently the fantasy community has proclaimed they have no need for 30 HR in their middle infield. Uggs is the 15th Second Baseman off the board at MockDraftCentral (ADP 206). That is shameful. "One man's trash..." as they say.
Post-Hate Sleeper Alert (mine, but you can use it)
Sure Uggla struck out more often than usua...
BEST OF MAXIM
It's a business; a hard, unforgiving business.
It was a business last season, when Braves catcher Brian McCann played hurt and, according to several former teammates, grew frustrated when management did not sufficiently acknowledge his condition or sacrifice.
And it will be a business this offseason, when McCann becomes a free agent and, if healthy, likely draws interest from...
A few days and a couple spring training games back, lodged in a hallway between George M. Steinbrenner Field's visitor's dugout and its accompanying clubhouse, Fredi Gonzalez voiced his displeasure with Joey Terdoslavich.
"We happen to have a day off tomorrow," Gonzalez said, straight-faced, "and we're gonna sit him down."
Terdoslavich had just completed...
ATLANTA This is the Julio Teheran everyone has been waiting for.
Though his nine spring innings are but a small sample size, Teheran, the 22-year-old Colombian product and top Braves prospect, looks to have his confidence back. He's one of seven Braves pitchers below a 3.00 ERA this spring (2.00) and his 12 strikeouts are tied for second among all Grapefruit League participants...
Spring has not gone as Tim Hudson had hoped. The veteran pitcher had another rough outing on Sunday allowing six runs in five innings to the Marlins.
There is still time for a turn around as Hudson has three starts left this spring. The 37-year-old has allowed 10 runs in 14 innings thus far.
Hudson told David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he feels...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Brian McCann took some light swings with a bat, chatting up a member of the Braves medical staff and his teenage son about their golf games as the catcher bided his time, waited to take batting practice at Champions Stadium.
In the distance the team charter bus transporting McCanns teammates to another spring training game pulled off, leaving the rehabbing...
BRAVE NEW WORLD
The Yankees reportedly intend to gauge the interest of recently retired Braves star Chipper Jones, among others, in possibly filling in for the injured Mark Teixeira.
The Braves wrapped up their second week of exhibition play on Saturday with a “W”, bringing their Grapefruit League record to 5 of 8.
This week’s scores (3/2-3/9, SS is split squad):
Blue Jays (SS)
Slowly the roster picture...

After being selected seventh overall in the 2009 Amateur Draft, Mike Minor has seen more bad days than good ones in Atlanta. Even though his strikeout numbers have been more than respectable, his career 4.37 ERA and 1.30 WHIP leave much to be desired. Minor started 30 games for the Braves last year, his first full season in the majors, and posted career-bests...
