Braves Dan Uggla: Baseball’s Sibyl

Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla can make you shake your head and slam your fist down on the table.  If it wasn’t for maturity and not wanting to injure yourself, that fist could just as easily be put through a wall, or maybe even a window. Sometimes when you see Uggla strike out on three pitches, while looking ridiculous, it makes you wonder if he is suffering from severe...

Could Braves Trade Dan Uggla?

Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla has had some great moments since he came to Atlanta, but he’s also been a major enigma.  Uggla is the second highest paid Braves player behind B.J. Upton, but his production hasn’t been top ten. Uggla has not only struggled at the plate, he is currently 20th in the major leagues in second base fielding percentage at .965, and is tied for...

Cincinnati (37-26) will try to get back on track after missing...

The Joey Votto Technicality

Joey Votto didn’t pop up on Monday. Of course he didn’t. It’s not because he didn’t play — he did play, and he batted four times. The first time, he grounded out. He’s human. The second time, he singled on a liner. He’s a talented human. The third time, he flew out. He’s still human. The fourth time, he walked. He’s human, but less so than us. I remember, back in...
