Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has a chat transcript from Dan Uggla’s Wednesday afternoon appearance on ESPN Radio 760 in West Palm Beach. During the interview Uggla hinted that he’d like the Marlins to offer him a long-term deal, even if it’s "crappy."
"People would argue that I deserve a long term deal, along with some other guys on our team that probably deserve a long term deal. But by no means are we saying, ’Oh we are worth just as much as Hanley [Ramirez],’ or anything like that. It would be nice to have them [the Marlins] — to even throw out even a crappy deal just to show us they are interested in keeping some of us around."
Uggla, 28, hit .260/.360/.514 last season with 32 home runs and 92 RBI. He also stole five bases.
