2013 Heritage #115 Dan Uggla
Hamlet feared death and what lies beyond the grave. Well, I have come to the conclusion that management fears cutting ties with the guy because of what lies beyond the death of a horrible contract. Perhaps they fear that, should they cut him (because let's face it, NO mlb team would trade for the guy), he would magically turn it around and become the player they thought they were acquiring two-plus years ago. Aye, there's the rub.
2014 thus far: 95 AB, 17 hits, 1 2B, 5 HR, 9 RBI, 15 BB, 39 K .179/.291/.341 4 errors in 125 chances
1964 Topps #115 Frank Bolling
With nearly 220 fewer plate appearances than in '63, Bolling just seemed to have lost his ability to hit- seeing his average drop 45 points to a career-worse .199 (in 352 at-bats, so it wasn't just some small sample size). He also saw a large increase of strikeout/walk ratio-having more than twice as many strikeouts than walks. One positive from '64: Bolling led all National League second basemen in fielding percentage.
