I'm doing this to get another starter to add to my depleted staff. Nolasco isn't exactly an Ace by any measure, but he's serviceable, will get 10-15 Wins strike out 150ish. Uggla wouldn't be playing much this year for me. He supposedly has a 'new swing', but I think he loses his starting job before the ASB. Good deal, NY.
Baseball may be a religion full of magic, cosmic truth, and the fundamental ontological riddles of our time, but it's also a job.
i have a load of average SPs and I think I can afford to part with one, especially now it seems I will hopefully be getting some unexpected production from Pineda. I have a big hole at MI in general and 2B in particular, and i'm sure I can't bank on much from Brian Roberts. As a Braves fan I am well aware of Uggla's shortcomings but he should contribute pretty well in HRs and TBs at least (until he gets ditched for La Stella!) and, if he has somehow refound his swing, he has the upside of a top 10 2B.
