Uggla wants to remain a Marlin

Dan Uggla is part of the Marlins plans, not only for the short term but into the future.

The team is strongly considering signing the two-time All-Star second baseman to a multiyear contract after the season.

Uggla belted his 140th career home run, which places him three behind Mike Lowell for the franchise lead.

Uggla said he would welcome a long-term contract, especially with the new ballpark scheduled to open in 2012.

“If it’s true, it feels good,” Uggla said of the chance to sign for several seasons. “I think everybody knows that I’d love to stay in South Florida. It’s my second home. I love the people down there. I love everything it has to offer. It would make me a very happy man.”

I also though so, I knew that Dan Uggla enjoys the stay at South Florida and if he can get an opportunity to sign a long terms contract he will gladly do that. But doesn?t he deserve it? I mean belting 140th career in a home run is just amazing there are few players who can reach that. – Jordan
