Uggla Revisited

I know we've hit the Dan Uggla idea before, but i don't remember discussing it in the context of trading for him, then shifting him to left field. hear me out...

Uggla was pretty bad at second base this year (.981 FP), but his bat obviously made up for it: .260/.360/.514 (at DOLPHIN STADIUM!!!). If we could acquire him for, say, Erick Aybar/Jered Weaver and a prospect, we could stick him in left, let him take over for GA and watch him rip up the AL West. That would enable us to hold onto Wood and Kendrick, while still adding a solid, powerful bat.

He'd be a solid Plan B if we missed out on Teixeira or Adam Dunn, and I would like to see us go after him even when we get Teixeira (notice I said "when"). His defense may be pretty bad in the infield, but he might be fairly solid out in LF (ala Ryan Braun).
