Via Ken Rosenthal:
The Marlins, unable to reach agreement on a contract extension with Dan Uggla, plan to trade the second baseman, according to major-league sources.I try not to put too much stock in trade rumors, because my own anxiety about possible trades does nothing to influence the outcome, so I defer the anxiety for later. However, if the Marlins do trade Uggla, within a week of trading away the two major chips received in the Miguel Cabrera trade, the Marlins may have a fan revolt on their hands.
The team is "down the road" with several clubs in trade discussions, and a deal could happen within the next week, one source said.
And if the Marlins trade Uggla to a division rival (!) I will have a hard time forgiving them.
