Dan Uggla Is Heating Up!!!

To put it bluntly, these are words that Florida Marlins fans have been waiting 12+ months to hear.

Since the 2008 All-star break, Dan Uggla has been in an offensive funk.  And while his numbers are still respectable compared to other second basemen around the league, they have not been close to the offensively dominant numbers we were used to seeing.

Over the course of the last 10 games that feeling has changed considerably!!  With ‘The Fish’ going 7-3 over that period, Uggla has finally been a key cog in the wheel that has led to their winning ways.  In the last 10 games, he has raised his batting average 14 points by going 14-for-36 while collecting at least 1 hit in 9 of the ten 10 contests.  In that span, Uggla has belted 3 home runs while collecting 9 RBI and scoring 5 runs.

It’s times like these that make me remember why Dan Uggla is a fan favorite.  Hopefully his success at the plate continues as we get deeper and deeper into the chase for the National League East pennant!!
