This should be interesting. I guess if you suck on a regular basis, you probably get tired of being called B.J., even if it's the name you've used all your life... Just a hunch on my part. I dunno.

Rizzo offered Uggla a minor-league contract with an invitation to big-league camp. Because Uggla technically remains under contract with the Braves ? they still owe him $13.2 million this season ? the Nationals are on the hook only for the major-league minimum ($507,500) if he makes the roster.

Bigtime Muttley...At that price, he'll be closely watched for signs that he's got something left in the tank, but IMO he'll never be more than bop off the bench for us. If either Desmond or Escobar were to get hurt, Espinosa would play ahead of Uggla. Then there's the issue of if you keep him in a bench role, does he embrace the role or does he become a clubhouse cancer? Guy has a reputation for being a total d*ck IIRC.

That almost offsets Maggs Cherser's entire pay for a year.

I finally found out what the BJ stood for: Bossman Junior

No wonder he wants to go by his real given name......

I don't think it matters much what name he goes by. If the MF'er can't hit more than .200, no one is going to care. Meantime, in addition to having to pay Uggla out the wazoo, the Braves are on the hook for the ridiculous money they have to pay "Melvin", and I take great pleasure as a result.

Apparently the only people from Latin America who have difficulty entering the country are ballplayers.
