After Dan Uggla's recent continued struggles at the plate, many fans have taken to the FaceTweeterBlog-osphere calling for him to replaced in the lineup--by anyone. In and of itself, this probably does not seem like a bad idea. Since his arrival in Atlanta in 2011, Uggla has a batting average of .211. Combine that with…
