Braves Release Dan Uggla
After weeks of speculation, the Atlanta Braves have reportedly made the move that fans have been begging for, and have decided to release struggling 2B Dan Uggla.
As a Braves fan, I’m thrilled. As someone who understands business, I’m irate – the Braves still owe this pile of shit $13 million in salary for NEXT SEASON.
But, at the end of the day, I’m sure this will be a relief to all parties involved. Uggla hit a putrid .179 last year and was somehow doing even worse this year, hitting just .162 before being demoted to a bench role. He never even got a hit as a pinch hitter.
Good luck, Dan – it’s been real fun watching you miss sliders by 18 inches over the last few years.
