The Braves finally own up to a multi-million dollar mistake and release Dan Uggla.
Jul 13, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez refused to get into specific in his chat with the media before Sunday afternoon’s series finale at Wrigley Field, but second baseman Dan Uggla has officially been suspended one game without pay and David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution hears that it was for tardiness.

He’s a catcher. And Evan Gattis’ bat is essential. So that would make Gattis an outfielder. At least in name.

Not that that’s too tough a trick.

Uggla kills the Braves. But that’s not the kind of killing we’re talking about here.
May 28, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT
In the strongest sign yet that the Braves might finally be ready to bench Dan Uggla or perhaps even cut bait on the struggling second baseman, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that they’re calling up Triple-A second baseman Tommy La Stella.

A bridge is about to go one-half of an Uggla over budget, and that could really mess up the parking situation.
May 10, 2014, 12:30 AM EDT
Dan Uggla was not in Friday’s lineup and is slashing an ugly .184/.241/.272 on the season. Manager Fredi Gonzalez plans to discuss Uggla’s role on the team soon.

And, if these plans or something like them come to fruition, it’ll represent a better use of the land than that to which the Braves are currently putting it.
May 8, 2014, 10:50 PM EDT
With Dan Uggla struggling, the Braves are expected to look to Ramiro Pena, Tyler Pastornicky, and possibly Tommy La Stella at second base.

At what point will the Braves decide enough is enough with Dan Uggla?

The rest of the day’s posts will be from Gleeman, as I will be sitting by the fire, sharing glasses of wine and cutesy talk with this video all day long.

Craig Kimbrel didn’t pitch Monday due to a sore shoulder, but the Braves are hoping he’ll only have to miss a few days.
Apr 13, 2014, 1:43 PM EDT
It sounds like Denard Span’s concussion is fairly minor (if a brain injury can ever be considered minor).
Apr 12, 2014, 5:41 PM EDT
Nationals outfielder Denard Span suffered a concussion when he collided with Braves second baseman Dan Uggla last night.

Outfielder B.J. Upton and second baseman Dan Uggla had miserable 2013 campaigns for the Braves, finishing with a .557 and .671 OPS, respectively. Both players finished with batting averages well under the Mendoza Line with 150-plus strikeouts. It was ugly. As the Braves flipped the calendar over to 2014, there was a sense of optimism…

Yesterday the Braves agreed to an eight-year, $135 million deal with Freddie Freeman. They separately agreed to a two-year, $13.3 million deal with Jason Heyward, buying out his last two years of arbitration. Today Jon Morosi draws a conclusion from that: You could have described this as the Braves committing multiyear contracts to a pair…

The Rule 5 draft took place this morning. It’s traditionally the last thing that happens at the Winter Meetings, so there’s a bittersweet element to it I suppose. We all have to go home today.
