I love baseball, but baseball is a job. If I showed up for work and did a bad job for 2 years I would be fired. I wouldn’t be paid $19 million after being fired.
I’m sure it Dan Uggla is upset, but even if he never hits another HR in his career he will make more money the next 3 months than most of us will make in our lifetime.
The Braves made a horrendous mistake trading and then signing Uggla. The team also has a bad contract with B.J. Upton and perhaps with Chris Johnson. The team can’t afford these kind of mistakes.
This screaming liner didn’t stand a chance with Jason Heyward in right field.

Deion Sanders is the only person to hit a MAJOR LEAGUE HOME RUN and score an NFL TOUCHDOWN in the same week.
Some awesome photos of the Braves game yesterday by Wayne Ward. Be sure to check out his blog.
