Marlins, Braves working on a deal for Dan Uggla

July 29, 2010: San Francisco,CA. Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla  in action, during the game between the Florida Marlins and the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco,California. The Marlins shutout the Giants 5-0. Jeff Trouette/CSM.

The haunting images of Brooks Conrad turning this year’s postseason into his own personal error fest may soon vanish for Braves fans. That’s because Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that Atlanta may be on the verge of acquiring second baseman Dan Uggla.

Wait a tick, wasn’t Uggla the only player to make three errors in a single All-Star Game? Uh…yeah. Moving on…

Rosenthal writes that the Marlins would send Uggla to the Braves in exchange for Omar Infante and left-hander Mike Dunn. Not that Infante and Dunn are Neifi Perez and Armando Benitez, but really? That’s it, Marlins? That’s all you want for Dan Uggla? There’s reason to believe that Uggla won’t match his numbers from 2010 but the compensation here seems awfully light.

That said, this is just what Rosenthal is reporting. He’s a respected baseball reporter, but who knows what clubs are actually discussing at this point in the offseason. It’s early and Rosenthal may be way off in his report.

But if this were the deal that eventually goes down, the Marlins would be getting a steal.
