I guess you could drop Posey if he is just on your bench, I don't see how you could possibly keep him. Not that he might not have the talent but only keeping 5 or 6 I would rather have someone else than a catcher who has been out of the game for nearly an entire season who has not really proven anything but that he is good not great in not even a total of one full MLB season. I don't love Dunn/Polanco/Desmond but picking up Uggla doesn't really help you with that. What year is this team? You have a tough year ahead of you, and with that way things are going I would be looking towards next season.
I would pick up Uggla and drop someone you don't think you would keep, then try to make 2:1 trades where you upgrade your team and end up with 5-6 awesome keepers because if you are in last now, I don't love your chances of winning a league. However, you have some good talent here and with a couple of savvy moves, you could position yourself to be a top team next season. I would move: Phillips/Berkman/Ortiz/Haren/Cahill/Nolasco and see if out of those 6 you can find 2-3 really good keepers to add to Holliday/Zimmerman/Lincecum. Then you can wait around and see what happens with guys like Heyward and Desmond and Werth, and weigh your options with Strasburg and Posey.
None of this relates to the topic but the point I am making is that Uggla is really a non-factor in all of this because you can't trade him, and he isn't going to be a keeper. Unless you think you can pull this one out of your a$$, then I would start making moves now to position myself for a monster 2012.
