Freddie being Freddie!!!
Yummy Fresh Doo Doo
Harry = Funny Drunkard
Skip = Quirky SmartAss
Chip = Lame Douchebag
to bad that Wren is not as smart as the indians GM.They are getting Jimenez they are not worry about trading a top prospect to get a great player who could put them on top
Tribe made a deal, huh?! Well, THIS tribe aint making no deal!
that Constanza shur do ground out a lot……
July 30th, 20117:49 pm
who says the 6 untouchables are ALL pitchers?????? we have a couple of TOP-NOTCH position players in the pipeline that are awesome and we need to play ASAP. (i.e. SS for Gonzo etc)
were rolling now……hell ya
HOME RUN UGGLA
I saw Alex White, if he can stay healthy, he could be a great pitcher.
His NAME is Dan Uggla
Once again………..His name……………………IS DAN UGGLA!!!!!!
Uggla en fuego!
Dam he’s hot..just like making a trade lol
UGGLA! Another 3-run DOUBLE PITS TO CHESTY blast from our main man, ugs!
The A Bomb
OK Frank, I’m happy for you.
God, I love Dan Uggla!!!!!!!
McFann O O Get Well Soon, BMac!!!

BOOM SHOT CLOCK BOOM LOCK A LOT
Brave4life-1995 all over again??
6:31pm: A deal featuring Span and Storen continues to look close, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter).
Dan Uggla… wow.
I’ve been one of his harshest critics but this guy Uggla has been something lately…wow.
They calL him………….DAN UGGLA!
Billy the kid
Thats why we got Ugglas………
His Name is………..Dan Uggla and he is hotter than a dancin bobcat!
that is all we needed was him to catch fire…..carry the team baby…..who was talking about only solo shot with uggla.
The Ghost of Trenidad Hubbard.

Uggla just made Bobby Cox smile somewhere: 3 run homer.
I take back everything I said about Uggla. I’m eating a lot of crow right now
mlbbowman Mark Bowman
Martin Prado, who was never considered “untouchable”, just singled to give the #Braves a 1-0 lead.
WE ALREADY HAVE OUR RIGHT-HANDED BAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! goooooooo UGGLA!
DAN THE MAN MORE THAN USUAL!!!
my my how the sentiments about Uggly have changed.
July 30th, 20117:51 pm
I was reading last night,Boon got it all wrong. Braves were not all that interested in Pence,and ESPN tried to make it look that way.
That pitch to Uggla was Right. Down. The. Middle… and he didn’t miss it!
6 ribbies in the last 2 games. 21 game hitting streak. Good god!
Wow, really happy for Uggs. Not just because it helps the team, but he just seems like a great guy and one that is really easy to root for. Go Dan!
Uggla gives me a chubby!!!
At least Ubaldo did not go to the Yankees did the Indians trade Rodger Dorn and Rick Vaughn .
How do you like me now Atlanta?
BMac at the top of the railing.
Dan Uggla performing like Dan Uggla for us in the second half is BIGGER than a Pence trade for the Phils. Get Bourn to lead off and a RH RP to give some help to O’Ventbrel and take your chances.
hard not to be optimistic with Freeman and Uggla hot…..
Hey A Bomb cali is a cool place but i am down south living till the day I die.
can we all just say that FRANK WREN GOT THIS ONE RIGHT?! uggla is back to a an fav
July 30th, 20117:52 pm
LOL, that’s funny, groundfog.
I hope the Marlins really enjoyed Omar Infante’s 1 homerun!
That’s my boy! Uggla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alex White (Former UNC TARHEEL) pitched in the ML with Cleveland this year and beat the Reds plus Drew Pomeranz….WOW…That’s Cleveland’s last 2 1st round picks
WHAT A COUP for the COLORADO ROCKIES!!!
Seriously, we get someone that can get on base and create havoc like Bourn with Freddie and Uggs hitting like they are…Martin is going to heat up…Mac and Chipper coming back. We can compete with anyone. Get Bourn, FW!
I was just thinking Annibal wasn’t looking too sharp, then WHAMM!!
JC from DR! (You gotta tip your cap to ____)
SI_JonHeyman Jon Heyman
ubaldo was scratched. looks like a deal. #rockies, #indians
Does anyone know if Freddie is related to Morgan Freeman or former Braves reliever Marvin Freeman???
July 30th, 20117:53 pm
wren doesn’t want to win, that’s why he signed ‘meaningless home runs’ uggla
On Wren standing pat at the trade deadline:
“We look at our team and you get McCann, Chipper, Nate and Moylan back and you feel good about moving forward. Another key element in our decision is Constanza. We really feel this guy can bridge the gap until either Nate or Schafer get back. Plus, we have six ‘untouchables’ and it’s difficult to proceed with negotiations that way. All in all, we feel very confident in our ballclub moving forward”.
Tim Hudson –
139 – 2 with a three run lead.
Uggla, McCann, Freeman. What a trio.

Funny how that happens when the guy finally starts doing something!

“Dan Uggla performing like Dan Uggla for us in the second half is BIGGER than a Pence trade for the Phils. Get Bourn to lead off and a RH RP to give some help to O’Ventbrel and take your chances.”
You may be right Heath
We just made a major deal. We’ve traded in years of mediocrity from our 1B and 2B positions for a kid named Fredi Freeman and….THE REAL…DAN…UGGGGLLAAAAA!!!!!!!
Man, saying Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman are on fire is an understatement right now.
HIS NAME IS DAN UGGLA! Put us on your back Dan. We need to ride to the finish line.
Been thinking about getting another shirt at the 8/12 game. I’ve been debating about who’s shirt to get. I think Dan just made the decision for me. I’m sure I’ll have a F5F shirt before the season’s end, too.
geeze you folks spent the entire first half convincing me that Uggly was worthless and now you are telling me that maybe not so much after all.
I’m old and I get confused easily. I wish y’all would stick to one story that i can remember.
July 30th, 20117:55 pm
Who was I talking too a few months ago about Uggla not hitting…..I said he was going hit and someone said that was no guarantee..
There has been speculation that Jiminez may be hurt as he has not been throwing the gas that he did last year.
I love it when Pitchers field their position and don’t fall off the mound like some do on their follow through
Ubaldo should fetch better prospects than someone like Bourn. He is an ace pitcher. He is under team control with very team friendly terms through 2014.
“I hate the word untouchable!!! No one should be untouchable!”
The ONLY guys who should be considered NEARLY untouchable are young players who are all-star caliber starters who havent played long enough to be getting the big bucks yet
Even them – I mean, if someone offered you a similar player AND something – you think about it.
We look at our team and you get McCann, Chipper, Nate and Moylan…
Nate??? Is Wren serious? If anything, he makes the Braves worse.
July 30th, 20117:56 pm
Uggla as hot as he’s been this month, still has an average under 210, andan OPS under 700 even with 20 homers.
According to my fiancee… that’d be a first
I don’t get any bright ideas to comment on that lol
Serious question: How does Uggla turn on a dime from so cold to so hot? I haven’t heard anything like a secret injury, or an eyeball transplant or new glasses or anything. Not even mechanical adjustments. It just started working for him. I know he’s been working hard all along, and I love him for it, but was there a “something” involved?
have you all thought MAYBE frank wren is using a negotiating tactic to classify 6 “untouchables” so that other teams THINK they got one in a trade? it’s called strategy let him handle it….he’s a pro and will do what’s best for the team.
If Uggla, Freeman, and McCann keep hitting like they’ve been ,and we get Bourn, i think we are the best team in the NL.
Uggla extends hitting streak to 20 games with three-run homer to snap scoreless tie last night, and three at-bats later he extends streak to 21 games with another three-run homer against his old team. Wow. Dude is venting a lot of early season frustration with these swings now.
Noliee, you didn’t listen to Lou Vales did ya?
Yummy Fresh Doo Doo-
You know he made that quote up, right?
July 30th, 20117:57 pm
Go for it FW. We got the team. Get us true leadoff hitter that plays CF and a bullpen arm. That’s all we need!
I agree with the Uggla playing up to his potential is huge. The biggest thing for the Phils is the return to form of Utley. With his injury I really doubted wether we would ever see this Utley again
Uggla will cool off soon enough but will hopefully be decent from here on….maybe.
I am so proud of Uggs.
July 30th, 20117:58 pm
Freddie has his OPS up to .847. Impressive.
Uggla has got his pimp stroll back and he is putting them tricks in their place.
You mean like thinking that your lady is probably correct? I would never think such things
I wanted to murder Dan Uggla a month ago…
Wow…..Colorodo dealt Ubaldo Jimenez….that as about as stupid as you can make.
That was a beauty of a DP!
Went to the Cinderella concert at Wild Bill’s last night. Guitar player came out for the last 3 songs wearing a Jason Heyward T-shirt. The concert was great and that just made it better. What’s even cooler is my husband noticed that it was a Braves shirt and pointed it out to me! May be hope for him yet
July 30th, 20117:59 pm
All we need is Bourn now and the team is complete. Bourn is our ticket to win the WS. What are we waiting for ?
Put us on your back Dan
or one of his giant biceps
Bourn or Schafer
that’s a pretty damn good line-up no matter what…..
in my opinion, even with our holes, this is the best braves line-up in YEARS—-FAR better than last year and we STILL almost pulled it off with the Giants
not not Lou (I mean does anybody listen to Lou) , just dozens of Braves fans who assured me that Uggla was a POC who would never be worth a damn….
July 30th, 20118:00 pm
If the braves don’t go get bourne they are straight up blanks. His speed at the top of the lineup would give the braves a huge jolt. Don’t be fooled by the last two nights. The marlins are garbage enough though they have played a little better since the manager change.
