Pass, you have plenty of power, so there's no real need for Uggla and that awful average. Stick with the speed and youth of the guys you've got. Any thoughts as to why you would consider the trade?

Basically, only reason I considered is that Altuve is a backup - and I would probably play Bonifacio at 2B before him due to speed -- and I don't trust Hanson anymore. So it would be to solify my rotation and take a flier on the chance that Uggla goes on one of his monster streaks.

Ah, I see. Well, by not trusting Hanson you are going to have to trust Hudson's back. If you can stomach that then I guess it's worth a shot. I don't think you'd be 'winning' the trade on paper, but it could be a good lottery ticket with Uggla if that's what interests you.
