Uggla deal done: 5 years, $65 million

Dan Uggla
Dan Uggla's anticipated extension with the Braves is done, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, and it makes him the highest-paid second baseman in history.

At $13 million per season, Uggla's five-year, $65 million deal eclipses Chase Utley's deal (seven years, $85 million) in annual value. Uggla had been offered a four-year, $48 million extension by the Marlins, who traded him to Atlanta in November after he rejected it. Uggla was in his final year of arbitration eligibility, so this buys out four years of potential free agency.

In 2010, Uggla batted .287 with 105 RBI and 33 home runs, becoming the first second baseman ever to reach the 30-homer mark four times.

 I sleep about 10 hours a day

So do the bums I give change to in Center City Philadelphia every morning.  Do you sleep those 10 hours a day on a steam vent as well?

Sarcasm isn't your strong point.

Maybe not, but owning you in threads and making you look like a fool seem to be.....



Whatever you want to tell yourself. I sleep about 10 hours a day. A fat kid from PA is certainly not going to disrupt me nor have an effect on whether i get rest at night. I can assure you that.

If you sleep 10 hours a DAY, I would suggest you go get an education so you don't continue getting owned.  The other option is to get a job so the U.S. taxpayers don't have to support your lazy butt anymore.

And the most comical thing is you calling me a fat kid from PA.  I'm 6'2" and 175 lbs......so if anything, I'd be considered a little too skinny, Johnny Reb.

Furthermore, are an 8, D, 0, :, ;, and a bunch of = signs what you think represents stats? LMAO!  That's probably why you continue getting owned in this thread and why you're making Southerners look as dumb as everyone already thought they were.

 I'm in your head so bad now that you can't even sleep at night

You have to remember as you reside in PA, No one is taking you seriously. I doubt you would even know how to change an IP Address. Fat kids like you make me laugh trying to act hardcore with a keyboard. You claim i never post stats, well take a look at these stats:


8============D    O:


My ****.

;     Your mouth.


GG, I don't need to know how to change an IP address, especially because CBS doesn't ban IP addresses.....they ban user ID's.  And it usually takes a lot more than what I said to have your ID banned, so think again.

Furthermore, are an 8, D, 0, :, ;, and a bunch of = signs what you think represents stats? LMAO!  That's probably why you continue getting owned in this thread and why you're making Southerners look as dumb as everyone already thought they were.  Thanks for making this so easy, GG, it's fun making you look like a fool and getting you angry enough to continue replying about absolutely nothing.  Just a few posts ago, you were saying you wouldn't reply to my posts anymore, yet you can't help yourself.  I'm in your head so bad now that you can't even sleep at night.  That's the only explanation for writing one post, then another angrier post an hour later, without any response from me in between.  If this keeps up, that vein in your forehead is going to pop.  Call that psychiatrist, dude, you need some serious help.....or a better education.

GG, I'm just going to create another "IP" if this one gets banned, so it won't really matter.  Furthermore, what did my post say that was bad enough to get banned?  LMAO....you're such a fool and a crybaby.  You make assinine statements, get owned, then you cry to CBS for whatever reason.  I'd love to be the guy working for CBS, reading whatever you could possibly report my post for, because he's probably cracking up after reading this thread.  You probably made his day, Numbnuts.

Good Job, exactly what i wanted you to say. Now after cbs takes a look at this, I'm going to enjoy seeing you IP banned.

Next time you spew out a complete and utter lie, or run your mouth of any sort then you've lost all credibility with me. That means i no longer reply to your posts nor have any sort of conversation with you. For a guy that thrives on attention, it should be devastating.

GG, how many keys are missing from your keybooard after typing this response?  I must've really struck a nerve for you to write a post an hour after writing your other post without any responses from me in between.  Am I really in your head that bad?  Were you laying in bed, fuming, as you thought about how bad you got pounded in this thread?  Dude, go call your psychiatrist and have him fill up that xanax prescription so you don't pop a vein in your forehead.  I can understand you being angry after I made you look like a fool in this thread, but there's no reason to be this angry.  I get it...you're not too bright, so maybe it's unfair of me to pick on you so bad.  You make it too easy though, GG, especially when you make assinine statements but can't provide any proof/stats to back up your argument.  

Finally, I would love it if you stopped replying to my posts, it would save me the time of having to look up and post stats to refute your continously assinine statements.

Then your memory isn't that good, so I'll rehash for you.  You were stating the Braves were better than the Phillies and that they had the division locked up in late June 2010.  I told you the Phillies historically played VERY well in the second half of the season and you didn't want to hear it.  Then, after the Phillies won the division by 6 games, you started using the very excuse (injuries) that you said wasn't an excuse on June 29.  Hence the fact.....you got OWNED all season.

I'm sure 2011 will be the same because you have the logic and baseball knowledge of a 3 yr old.  You make statements, never back them up with facts/stats, then you start making excuses and dancing around the topic at hand.  It's almost no fun owning you, GG, because you're either a little slow or you don't understand baseball at all.



I NEVER stated that the division was locked up. Throwing out numbers isn't at all what this board is all about scrub. This is the part where you create your own lies and believe anything you hear. Go get a link then you can run your mouth about what i said. Until then Put up or Shut up.
