Dan & Jordan - really?

Well, after tonight's Alex Gonzales win against the Marlins, we've learned really two things:

#1: Dan Uggla now has the worst batting average in the major leagues.

#2: Jordan Schafer, although starting out hot, is now reverting back to what he did when he first came to the bigs.

You can argue all you want (and i know you will) but these two points lead me to two conclusions -

1: Nobody who makes $10,000,000+ a year should be the worst at anything in their given field.  Uggla makes more than that figure and he's DFL in baseball right now when it comes to average.  His OBP can't be much better...

2: Don't talk so poorly about Nate McLouth's performance this season and say how Jordan Schafer is "definitely" better than him before Schafer got/gets a few at bats in.  Even if Jordan were to get back on track, he will never score runs at the same rate that McLouth does.

So, what happens now?  Uggla can still get his batting average over the mendoza line if he gets 10 hits in a row or something like that and maybe Schafer can prove to be a little better than average but honestly, is this going to be enough from these guys for the Braves to make the playoffs and then get to a world series?  Probably not.
