I'm not convinced. I think we are going to move on without Uggla. I feel like we can't have all that money tied up to two infield players. It's either Hanley or Uggla. That is what I think the conversation is in the FO. We have to many problems and not enough money to fix/retain it all.

Those aren't "problems."

Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that the Marlins are offering Dan Uggla a four-year contract extension, but that the second baseman seeks a five-year deal.

Not far off from what Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post reported last week. Heyman writes that Uggla would earn $8 million in the first year of the proposed contract, only a slight raise from the $7.8 million salary he earned in 2010. Unless the contract is heavily-backloaded, the Marlins will have to do better than that. Nov. 4 - 12:14 pm et

Semi-conflicting report from Frisaro:

More Movement in Uggla Talks

From months, the Marlins have made it clear they are hopeful of signing Dan Uggla to a multi-year contract. President of baseball operations Admin Beinfest repeated the team's stance on Wednesday when he confirmed there has been continued dialogue with Uggla's agent, Terry Bross of Gaylord Sports Management.

 

Beinfest briefly addressed the team's stance on Uggla during a conference call introducing Edwin Rodriguez back as Florida's manager.

 

According to multiple sources, talks with Uggla have been progressing. Exact details are still stetchy, but there has been movement to bridge the initial gap.

 

The Marlins' initial offer over the summer was three-years, $24 million. Uggla's camp countered with five years at more than $50 million.

 

There are indications that the Marlins have agreed to add a fourth year. Based on performance, Uggla has positioned himself to be worth about $11 million a season. So there is a likelihood that the sides could be discussing a four-year deal worth roughly $44 million.

 

Uggla earned $7.8 million in 2010.

 

The 30-year-old power-hitting second baseman has one more season left in arbitration before he'd qualify for free agency. The Marlins are trying to avoid that by locking up one of their top players.

 

After hitting 33 homers and driving in 105 runs, Uggla is lined up for a substantial raise.

 

Uggla is posting historic numbers at his position. He is the only second baseman in MLB history to hit at least 30 home runs in four seasons. He has done so in four consecutive years, which also is a team record.

 

With 154 career homers, Uggla is the Marlins' all-time leader in that category.

 

Uggla and Hanley Ramirez combine to form one of the most productive middle infields in the game. The organization is hoping to keep them together for several more years.

What's wrong with our rotation? JJ, Ricky, Anibal, Volstad, Sanabia?

 

Coghlan had a terrible year and got injured. We can't call this a problem after half a season (in which he started improving towards the latter part)

 

Maybin isn't a problem yet either.

 

I have no clue what the etc. is. You've literally mentioned everything that could potentially, maybe, kinda be a problem.

alright, i was real drunk when i posted that, but they are all question marks.

the rotation after JJ is a crapshoot. Coghlan and Maybin are crapshoots. the fielding is bad as a whole, i think that's where i was going with the etc.

 

i'd like to be certain that every will perform great, but i'm not at all

He seems stuck up on that 5th year.

 

I'm in no way in favor of 5 years for Uggla, and 4 years $48 million would be my absolute maximum offer for him. I personally would leave the offer on the table until the season starts, let Uggla sweat a little. If he doesn't take the offer, let him play next season and possibly trade him at the trade deadline.

 

If his numbers decline, which should be expected as last year was his career year and he's not getting younger, we can come in with a lower offer such as 4 years $44 million and hope he accepts.

 

I mean $12 million per year on what would probably be an upscale contract is a hell of a lot of money. Don't be greedy Danny boy.

I'll trade Uggla now while his stock is high.

 

 

Well then you better pray that Dominguez is ready to play in the big leagues and Coghlan is ready to take over at 2B

You put Ozzie at 2nd, or sign a F.A 2nd basemen and use that money on pitching.
