I want to trade for this player

I'm not sure if the link will work or not, since it is an ESPN Insider piece, but here's the nuts & bolts of it... "Why are the Marlins so eager to trade Dan Uggla? The answer was evident Monday when Chris Coghlan was named National League Rookie of the Year. Coghlan was shifted to the outfield this summer, but Florida can move back to his more natural position at second base if Uggla is unloaded. An unnamed general manager said the Marlins' No. 1 priority is to trade Dan Uggla for younger and less expensive players, reports the Miami Herald. "There's a decent market for him," aid the GM, who added that Emilio Bonifacio could replace Uggla at second base. We talked last week about how the Marlins are expected to aggressively shop this winter, and two clubs that have expressed strong interest are the Baltimore Orioles and San Francisco Giants. The key note shared by FoxSports.com is that both clubs view Uggla as a third baseman, rather than his natural position of second base. David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote Thursday that the Braves could have interest in Uggla to play left field. Does that put an Uggla-Javier Vazquez deal in the offing?" If other teams think he can play 2B/3B/LF/RF potentially, I say he is a perfect fit, because potentially, all of those are needs for KC (3B if AG moves to 1B)...just plug him into the weakest spot, and immediately have a big offensive boost. His UZR @ 2B has been up & down, but the downs have been more extreme than his ups, so I don't think he's going to win any gold gloves, but he is a high OBP guy that has some pop that is coming off a down year, I say we make a run at him...
