I don't even see Zobrist to Uggla as an upgrade.

I understand what you are saying. I consider Zobrist almost as good as Uggla, but I trust Uggs more. Just thought I would see where others valued each of them.

Just wondering why you trust Uggla more?
His OPS last year was a career low.
I prefer Zobrist over him myself.

Just a gut feeling that that epic slump he suffered was an anomaly. I passed on Uggs at $26 and drafted Zobrist at $24 in our auction because I thought they were about equal. Maybe I'm just having a crisis of confidence.

Thanks for the input.

From this post and your other one about trades, I think you suffer from the grass is always greener complex.

Perhaps, but I think it is more that I'm just trying to take advantage of a new guy in our league who totally mangled the draft. To me, it looks like he doesn't know what he is doing (but thinks he does), and I'm trying to profit from that.

I'd take Zobrist over Uggla, and I have a huge man crush on Bumgarner.
