Who gets picked up first: Uggla, Soriano, Pena?
Secondary Average of .311
and an OPS+ of 73...
Yowza, how is that possible? .175/.295/.332
Uggla has that one second half hitting streak where he just tore the #### out of the ball in Atlanta. Outside of those two months, he's just walking meat with rot set in. He and BJ Upton's career paths do not bode well for Greg Walker's continued employment as a Major League hitting instructor.
I wonder how much impact a hitting coach actually has?
I think Uggla just hit his wall early-ish. Meanwhile, some other guys are 40 years old and still going apace.
Even Rob Deer couldn't manage a league average OPS+ when he hit under .200, save for his one fun cup of coffee in his 1984 call-up
Uggla, whom the Braves signed to a five-year, $62-million deal just prior to the 2011 season, is still owed the remainder of his $13-million salary for this season and another $13 million for the 2015 season.
Jason's more athletic than Chipper, and may have a better sense of the zone
Don't forget his 1996 swan song with San Diego. Deer hit .180 and had an OPS+ of 125. He went 9 for 50 with 4 home runs, 3 doubles, and 14 walks.
Chipper had more BB than K, never struck out more than 100 times -
Why the hell is Fredi batting BJ Upton leadoff?????
