08:02 AM ET 09.05 | The Marlins and Dan Uggla's representation met again recently, but the sides remain extremely far apart on a multiyear deal; talks were tabled until October. Uggla, who could make $12 million in arbitration, would be a free agent after 2011.

I think he should get that neck injury addressed. Look at him in this picture. Poor guy can 't even look straight ahead anymore.

It's cool Florida, fleece the tax-payers on a stadium and then refuse to re-sign one of your few bright spots. They wonder why they have no fans, joke of a team.

That pretty well covers it. Except you left out the part where they fleeced the other owners in MLB with that revenue sharing BS.

Uggla would look good in black and orange.

Hell thats probably half the amount they get from the revenue sharing, maybe MLB should be telling them from here on out, all revenue money must be put into salaries

Also Florida is exactly why I say MLB needs a minimum cap

Looking into the crystal ball... Dan Uggla is traded for prospects and Jeffrey Loria hails the deal as a 'cornerstone' for the franchise's future... and introduces his new, first-time manager (working for a bottom-five in MLB salary). Loria is a thief, a tool, and an insult to baseball... he should be fined personally or outright denied any revenue-sharing $$ due to his utter lack of willingness to invest in player payroll. Losing Uggla puts the team a Hanley Ramirez injury away from not having a single recognizable name in the line-up. I feel for the Marlins fans... I still remember the Wrigley years prior to the sale ot the Cubs to the Tribune in Chicago, and that kind of utter (and unnecessary) futility breaks the fans' hearts.
