Dan Uggla's numbers since the All-Star break have been rather, um, ugg-ly.

After earning an invitation to the All-Star Game with a .286 average, 23 homers and 59 RBIs in the first half, Uggla has struggled to keep his average over the Mendoza Line in the second half of the season. Since the break, he is batting just .206 with five homers and 16 RBIs.

Contrast that to a player like Jose Lopez, who has been a steady producer all season long, including a .288 average, seven homers and 27 RBIs since the break.
