Uggla extended

Let's be honest. This is the only part of the press conference that made me feel better about giving Uggla a 5-year-deal before he plays a single game with a tomahawk across his chest. From braves.com:

"We had Dan under control for one year," Wren said. "If we had waited until the end of this year, he's going to get at least a four-year deal [as a free agent]. So it behooved us to go ahead and do a five-year deal now and make sure he was going to be an Atlanta Brave ... at the end of the day, it was somewhat of a simple decision for us."
That does make sense, but as I said on the FB and on Twitter, I only feel about 10% better about this whole deal. Change my mind, Uggla. I'm not a fan yet. (And still smarting over losing a couple of lovvies.)

Agreed. I have never really been an Uggla fan. And I hate that we got rid of good people for him.
