    Uggla is the better defensive 2B by every metric listed at BR and fangraphs.

    Braves have said they only want whoever takes Uggla to pay $6M of his remaining contract...so he's a 2yr/$6M contract and Schumaker is a 2yr/$5M contract.

    As 2B, I don't really see the difference. There's no platoon, though, Uggla has a reverse split.
    I don't remember Uggla being much of a prize defensively, but Schumaker is a fire plug. He'll catch almost everything hit right at him but almost nothing else. We're getting Skip for his bat and the intangibles. He's a great clubhouse guy. His team tends to win, wherever he goes.

    You're right about Uggla. There's no platoon option there...and the Braves aren't giving him away for nuttin'.

    You can steal a base without getting a hit, ask Lloyd McClendon.
