>Okay, maybe that’s a little harsh, but word came down not too long ago that the Florida Marlins have agreed to trade Dan Uggla to the Atlanta Braves for infielder Omar Infante and and reliever Mike Dunn.  I think the Braves got the better end of this deal.  Infante had a nice season, but he’s no Uggla.  And, Dunn? Well, honestly, I have no idea who he is in the first place.

So, why are the Marlins idiots?  You don’t trade one of your best players to a team in the division… you know, one of the first teams that you have to beat over the course of the season.  Okay… maybe it worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles, who traded Donovan McNabb to the Redskins… but the Redskins didn’t just make the playoffs like the Braves did.

But perhaps the greatest part in all of this is Mark Bowman’s tweet on the situation.

 appear to very close to nearing deal for Dan Uggla.

That’s right, the Braves were indeed “very close to nearing a deal.”  This guy’s a writer?  Geez!
