Tigers finalize 1-year deal with Gerald Laird

The deal is done, reportedly at $1 million, the same money Laird got with St. Louis last year.

“Gerald is a veteran catcher that is familiar with both our pitching staff and organization,” Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager David Dombrowski said. “As a right-handed hitter, he is the solid
complement to Alex Avila as our backup catcher for the 2012 season.”


Good, intelligent, economical signing.

Good intelligent economical signing!

Good, intelligent, economical signing. (hey everybody else was saying it…)

Cale Iorg was dropped from the 40 man roster (in advance of the Rule V draft). Saw him play last year and he just looked lost.
Smyly was not addded to the roster. I am assuming he is not eligible to be picked up in the Rule V draft because of how long he has been in the system. I think he has a better upside than Crosby.

G$ better throw out > the 20% he did last year
