Marlins Trade Dan Uggla -- And You Say.....?

 

             Dan Uggla is gone, dealt to the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday for Omar Infante and Mike Dunn, after he and the Marlins reached an impasse on a contract extension. It'll be interesting to see if Uggla regrets the four year, $48 million offer he rejected -- leaving money on the table is always a dangerous thing -- or if he cashes in with the Braves. But that's a story for another day.

             For now, the Marlins are dealing with the loss of a consistent 30-home run hitter, their greatest home run hitter in terms of the total, and a blue collar workhorse who seldom missed a game. It's the reason why Braves manager, and former Marlins skipper, Fredi Gonzalez was ecstatic when he heard the news.

             "This is a big bat in our lineup and he's a tremendous clubhouse guy, as blue collar as they come," Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "He plays the game one way. He tries to beat you. I spoke to him an hour ago and he's all excited."

             So let's hear it from you. What do you think about Tuesday's trade?
