Braves get Dan Uggla from Marlins: First round of interviews done.

For all the chatter that nothing gets done at the GM Meetings the Braves and Marlins sure put that to rest.  The Marlins, who couldnt sign Dan Uggla to long term deal,  moved the 2nd Baseman to the Atlanta Braves for Omar Infante and Left Reliever Mike Dunn.  This was just reported by multiple sources.  

Look for Prado to play either Left field or 3rd Base if Chipper Jones cant play.  Uggla is the first player to have 4 seasons of 30 homers while playing 2nd base.  The Braves needed a thumper to compliment there all star catcher Brian McGann who was left unprotected in the lineup until the Braves traded for Derrek Lee. 

In other news Sandy Alderson says the first round of interviews is done.  No word on the call backs.
