Phillips for Uggla?

Rumors are starting and I wanted to let this one sink in before I posted my thoughts on it. Brandon Phillips for Dan Uggla! At first I almost cried, then I thought I should look into it more before I judged such an idea. So, this is what I found on Mr. Uggla.

I still am not sure if Dan Uggla is the answer for the Cincinnati Reds but Walt Jocketty loves to bring in players who are struggling and watch them power their way to better careers in Great American Ball Park. This could be the case again if the Reds do make this trade.
