nah, wouldn't do it- 2B is pretty thin w. Utley and Roberts recovering and with unknown status. I think you've a pretty solid P-staff with some P from the WW during the season, there is no need for that kind of upgrade.

Stay put, your rotation is already solid as is. Plus it never hurts to have 2 top tier guys at a thin position

I think it's fairly even in terms of value, but I'd hang onto Uggla as well.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Deal is off the table and seeing what he got for Carpenter I am glad I didn't get rid of Uggla for it. :-°

DONT DO IT! whatever you do. But if i was getting Uggla i would say go for it ;-D


but seriously dont give up that much for Carpenter. He was already hurt once during spring training. Hes like 36 years old. Hes not prime.



Hang on to him and wait out another offer. Dont rush it :-)
