Dan Uggla, Of All People, Saved The Day

This had to feel so good. Riding a six-game losing streak, mired in last place, reeling from Anthony Rendon’s continually balky knee, missing Max Scherzer for a start and getting pounded 9-1 in Atlanta, the Nats came back to win 13-12 with Dan Uggla, who’s so bad that the Braves are still paying him just to be rid of him, hitting the game-winning homer in the ninth. Whew.

Report: Braves suspend Dan Uggla after he's late to game

getty images The Atlanta Braves have suspended second baseman Dan Uggla for one game without pay. That is just over $80,000 for those doing the math at home.

Dan Uggla: Atlanta Braves’ hottest mistake

Atlanta Braves’ second baseman, Dan Uggla, may look great in his tight-fitting uniform, but most would argue that he doesn’t fit so well on the baseball diamond. Uggla stands on a five-year contract and has two seasons remaining.  While the Braves tried their best to hand him off to another team this offseason, they had no takers.
