I am thrilled to learn that my favorite second baseman will play at least one more season for the ‘home’ team this year.
Hearing the news on Monday afternoon that the Marlins re-signed Dan Uggla to a 1-year contract solidifies the Marlins’ offense and ensures that players like Hanley Ramirez, Cody Ross, and Jorge Cantu will continue to get opportunities to shine in 2010.
The best home run hitting second baseman in the game today, Uggla has crushed 121 homers while driving in 360 RBI in his first 4 years in the majors.
I look for 2010 to be another power-full year for the slugger, and I hope to see that he is rewarded with a long-term contract offer after this upcoming season is complete.
Congratulations on the contract Dan. Now get ready to ‘Go Get ‘Em!!!!’
