Beautiful start for Uggla

The Marlins’ Dan Uggla (useless tidbit: his last name means “owl” in Swedish) got us off to a rip-roaring start. Uggla’s first two swings resulted in home runs. After three quick outs, he knocked out two more — both to the left-field seats. Five outs later, he struck again with another deep fly to left, about a dozen rows back. With nine outs, he sent a State Farm “Gold Ball” out to left, so that means a $17,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

I’ve added this all up, and that’s six first-round homers for Uggla. Who’s the dummy who said a left-handed hitter would probably win this thing?

Wait, Chris Berman is here?! Odds he makes an inappropriate comment to Erin Andrews? The same as Joe Morgan making an idiotic comment and Matthew Leach’s name being misspelled on the right rail of this page. Very, very good.
