BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)More likely scenario: Dan Uggla hits 30+ HR's or you see a unicorn in your back yard tonight?
(Chase from Pittsfield, MA)
Better a unicorn than the rougarou. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)How many daily hits does BP get?
(Alex from Kansas City)
More than Dan Uggla, almost as many as Miguel Cabrera. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts about why Dan Uggla and BJ Upton had such a terrible season batting in 2013. What are the chances they might / could improve. What is is going to take?
(1738679 from Northern Cali..)
Sometimes the league just figures guys out. Uggla doesn't have much of a plan up there, so pitchers know exactly how to attack him. What separates him from other bad hitters is how far he hits the mistakes. With Upton, it just looked like he was trying way too hard all year. The big contract, the red-hot start by his brother, it just looked like the whole thing snowballed on him. By the time he took a step back, it was too late. He's a flawed hitter, but he's not as bad as he was in 2013. Uggla may be at this point. (Jeff Moore)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)How concerned are you about Heyward's big-league performance to date? What are your expectations for him in 2012?
(GBSimons from Boise, ID)
Baseball is a really tough game. I know I was so bad at playing baseball I got cut from my high school team. Jason Heyward is incredibly talented and having a tough year. Look across the locker room and you see Dan Uggla who was hitting .173 on July 4th before catching fire. People forget Heyward is 22 years old and he's playing an incredibly difficult game. My expectations are that his talent will shine through and he will be a huge part of the Braves present and future. (John Coppolella)
2011-06-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)With all the hitting coaches being fired, when will Larry Parrish be shown the door by the Braves? He's taken one of the best offenses from last season, had Melky Cabrera withdrawn and Dan Uggla added, and has turned them into one of the worst this season.
(Nick Carter from London)
It's never clear how much impact a hitting or pitching coach can have on a team, so it's very tough to lay their problems at the feet of one, not that they don't as a means of scapegoating somebody when things get rough. Did Parrish tell Uggla to start swinging with his eyes closed? Did he trade Yunel Escobar for the hacktastic Alex Gonzalez? Did he drive Nate McLouth's career off a cliff? Cause Jason Heyward's injury woes? Force anyone to play Jordan Schafer?

The bottom line is that I'm very skeptical the Braves' offensive woes owe much to Parrish, though I suspect they'll make an example of him anyway if their fortunes don't turn. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the deal with the Braves lately? 7 of their last 10 games have been one run affairs. The offense sucks, and the pitching's been good. Is this kind of high-wire act what we should expect going forward until one of those two things changes?
(Matt A from Raleigh)
They weren't set up to be a great offense in the first place, and with the injury to Jason Heyward and that utter catastrophe we call Dan Uggla, that's two pieces of the offense that were expected to contribute that haven't been able to. No wonder Chipper Jones is pushing Heyward to return. In an ideal world, they could get Martin Prado (also dinged up) back to the infield to sit Uggla, but they just don't have the depth of outfielders to do that. ...Not sure if it's so good that three Braves are among the leaders in games pitched, including Kimbrel at #3. (Steven Goldman)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm just going to guess that it's too early to panic on Dan Uggla, right? Right!?!
(Rob from Alaska)
No, not time to panic. I'm buying where I can. (Derek Carty)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks again for all the answers. What's the over/under for star-level fantasy seasons left in Dan Uggla at 2B?
(Rob from Alaska)
Thanks for the questions! I give him two more star seasons and then one really good one before things start to come undone. (Marc Normandin)
2010-11-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Victor Martinez, Dan Uggla, Manny Ramirez, etc have all been linked to Toronto. What sort of delightful alternate reality have I slipped into unknowingly? Not since the days of Cone, Morris, Winfield, and Stewart have I been able to feel something other than dread or stark fear of the winter meetings as a Blue Jays fan. I could get used to this.
(Will from Mactaquac)
Exciting, isn't it? All of those guys would be in line for a power boost at Rogers Centre (who wouldn't, really), and if a couple of them end up there, the Jays would have some serious third-place buzz going, at the very least.

You know when you boil eggs for too long, lose track of time, and end up with milky egg white all over everything? That just happened to me. And yes, despite how this may sound, I'm actually talking about boiling eggs. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)For the A's to get that outfield bat or third baseman, which of their starting pitchers do you think they'll center a deal around?
(Dave from Chicago)
Well, here again, if the MLBPA is going to be more militant about making sure that teams aren't just cashing their revenue-sharing checks, maybe the A's low payroll provides the asset you really need to swing a deal: the A's can afford to take on a big paycheck. Why not see if the Marlins will talk about Dan Uggla? Or surprise people and seriously get in on Beltre?

The question you're asking, though, is really whether or not they'd part with one of their front four starters (with apologies to Vin Mazzaro). I'd see dealing Gonzalez or Anderson as a bad idea, and dealing Braden as very unpopular. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think is a fair contract extension for Dan Uggla, and/or what do you think he can get on the open market in 2011/12? Terrific production at the plate, bad defense, and on the wrong side of thirty -- what's he worth?
(Jimmy from South Florida)
I'd go 3/33, giving a little extra money for him accepting one less year but word has it that his agent is looking for 5/50. Good luck with that. (John Perrotto)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Chris Coghlan going to play most of his games in the Majors? Think he moves to the infield when the Marlins inevitably fall out of the race and deal Dan Uggla?
(Trey from San Diego)
While an Uggla deal which restores him to second base is an intriguing and legitimate possibility, nobody loved Coghlan's D at the keystone before, and it's only going to get tougher for him to move back the more time passes. I suspect his long-term future is in the outfield, and hope for his sake he can maintain last year's breakout level. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've noticed several Rule 5 returns over the last several days, and one trade in lieu of a return. Are Rule 5 picks and roster spots chosen to prevent players from being selected in the Rule 5 draft overhyped at the time? For example, I've seen criticism of Mac Phail's roster construction because he "lost" Steve Johnson in the Rule 5 draft, and now he's back.
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Hi Tom, good to see you here. The fascination with the Rule 5 draft is definitely overstated, because the vast majority of the selections mean very little, and it means even less under the terms of the current CBA. It's still interesting as a matter of possibility--Dan Uggla wasn't so very long ago, after all--but mostly, it's about kicking the tires with a few arms, and deciding to "buy back" the roster slot for any one of innumerable NRIs inevitably in camp with every ballclub. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Although not nearly the defeneder Emilio Bonifacio is at 2B, wouldn't the Marlins be best suited putting Chris Coghlan at 2B should they deal Dan Uggla based on the value of his bat in the infield?
(Goose from Chicago)
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-12-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Best player traded this offseason in the non-Halladay division will be ___?
(paulbellows from Calgary)
Dan Uggla. (John Perrotto)
2009-11-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)True or False - Dan Uggla is the Marlins Opening Day 2B.
(Paul from Miami)
False. Bad trade coming, I suspect. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the sudden emergence of Chris Coghlan, do you think Dan Uggla's days in Miami are numbered?
(Gray from Chicago)
In that Uggla is older and more expensive than Coghlan, sure, thatís possible. But money aside, letís not let one smokiní hot month from Coghlan confuse which of them is the better player. (Ken Funck)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John. Do you hear anything from scouts about Chris Coghlan? Is his future at 2nd base or in the outfield?
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
He's certainly a better defensive second baseman than Dan Uggla, but, long-term, most scouts like him better in the outfield. (John Perrotto)
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any chance that Daniel Murphy would be able to play second base if the Mets gave him a chance there? The kid's got an incredible work ethic and although he doesn't have too much athleticism, he does have a lot of minor league infield experience. He wouldn't be that much worse than Dan Uggla... would he?
(dtrainmets from NYC)
The people who saw him in limited time in Arizona said that he can't play the position. I might run him out there occasionally, say when Johan Santana or Oliver Perez is pitching and the opponent starts a righty, but he can't stay out there every day. The Mets have some tradition of doing this--Kevin Mitchell played some shortstop behind Sid Fernandez back in the day to get an extra bat in the lineup. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)If you were the Marlins, would you field offers for Dan Uggla this offseason and give the 2B job to Chris Coghlan?
(Tom from Miami)
I would do half of that. Uggla has peaked, and trading him now would be a good idea. That said, the Marlins are in position to trade offense for defense a bit, and maybe instead of Coghlan, they could look for someone with more glove than bat. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dan Uggla. Josh Hamilton. Who's the next Rule V stud?
(Dan H from Manhattan)
Too early. We need to know who's protected before we can make any bold predictions there. (Derek Jacques)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven, Always enjoy historical analysis with comparables for yester-year and today. Historically, do you have a good 2B comparison for Dan Uggla? This guy kinda came out of nowhere and has quietly established himself as a top producing 2B, what are your thoughts?
(Shane from Miami)
It doesn't really encompass his current hot streak, but the historic comp I always have in mind for Uggla is Woody Held. Good power for a middle infielder, struck out a lot for his day, got a late start because no one believed in him (no one happens to equal the Yankees, sorry), not a great glove. Held never dialed it up to .330 with a .600 slugging percentage, but his era didn't lend itself to that and I'm not so sure that Uggla is going to stay up there anyway. (Steven Goldman)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)what's the harm in starting Bocock? the giants aren't going to be good anyway, its not like he's taking them out of contention... maybe the giants think they see something that nobody else does (a la Dan Uggla two years ago).
(dave from DC)
He was one of the worst players in the California League, completely overmatched. He's probably not one of the 2000 best players in professional baseball. It's a ridiculous decision. Dan Uggla circa 2005 was Joe Morgan compared to Brian Bocock in 2007. (Joe Sheehan)
