I think he bounces back a little gets HR back into the 25+ range.  Its the average thats just a killer, if he could get that to like .240-260 he would be gold.  I will be watching him in our auction, I still need a guy in the MI spot, I dont really want him but if the price is right and he is totally written off going like sub $5, I will take a shot.
Seems everybody's jogging or heavy into health s?&t, don't tell me that I otta get rolfed, cause I love Cajun martinis and playing afternoon golf-JB from we are the people are parents warned us about

Even with an extreme career low at 19 HR's he finished 7th among 2B in my league. If he even bounces back a LITTLE bit and hits 24-26 HR he should be a top 5 2B again

If you play in a league with AVG he will hurt you in that category though, but the run production should make up for it

I owned him in 2011 and he carried me to a championship with his phenomenal second half run and fell in love.  Then last year I cussed, ranted, grew gray hairs, waited and waiting, and then said never again with this guy. With that said, if he is ends up hanging around on the board anywhere close to ESPN's T. Cockcrafts current draft position at 196  I think you have to take him.  That is a huge drop from a player who has always been drafted 40 ish.  Classic low risk/high reward pick at that draft position. It will also be so much easier to drop your 17-20th pick then your 4th is he remains in his coma at the plate.  Greg Walker still being the Braves hitting coach again is somewhat concerning to me though.  He coached Dunn during his season long 2011 disaster and Dunn was never able to shake the funk the whole year.  With Walker gone to Atlanta in 2012 Dunn was back to his usual self but that same type of slump Dunn had carried over to Uggla.  But, if he can get back to his normal 30 hr season with a 250 ave he will be a steal at 2B.

I would love to get him around 200 just because you can't find 2b that can hit 20 homers that late. I have a feeling he will go higher then that especially in casual leagues just because he is a familiar name at 2b

Stay away. He's been in a decline for 2 straight years, and he's not getting any younger. Sure he will give you 20-25 bombs, but at what cost? I predict yet another terrible batting average with overall declining power stats.

Any updates on how he looks in spring training? I'm hoping he turns it around - he has a great chance to put up some numbers with the lineup around him, but not if he's hitting .200 again.

Dan is still in a coma.  He is batting 200 with 1HR in 30 at bats this spring.

He's is VERY draftable and even desirable in OBP leagues.  NL leader in BB's.

I'm passing in all other formats.

I agree - I understand why he's hated in avg leagues, but last year (and it's hard to imagine him struggling more than he did last year), he posted something like 82/19/78/.342 in an OBP league - not too bad.

From yesterdays game: Braves win 17-10. Nine braves get hits, six have multiple hits (four three-hit games), 36 total hits between the Braves and Phillies.

Uggla: 0-4, 2Ks. (.184 on the spring).

Sounds about right!

After that unbelievably prolonged suck streak last season, I just can't handle the guy anymore.  Usually I'm tolerant of players through rough patches because that's the nature of the game, but this clown was hitting .150 with a .500 OPS for 3 months.  It's tough to forgive that level of ineptitude.

He fell to I think the 18th round in my Yahoo mock last night. Pretty good value for a guy capable of putting up good numbers.

We count walks in my league so I drafted him. If he hits 20 homers I'm fine as long as he keeps up that tasty walk rate. His OBP will also keep his run totals decent.
