The Braves new back-up backstop won’t make anyone forget David Ross

UPDATE: It’s a two-year deal. So Laird deserves two years but Ross doesn’t? Financial terms not yet disclosed, but at best the Braves save $2 mil over two years. Penny saved, Braves fucking foolish!

According to Bowman, the Braves are near an agreement with Gerald Laird, late of the Tigers.

He’s a career .244/.303/.359 hitter in the big leagues and has thrown out approximately 27% of attempted basestealers over the last three years.

In other words, he’s Charlie O’Brien without the power.

    What makes him better than Bethancourt?

  2. Rushing Bethancourt isn’t the answer. Not re-signing Ross was the mistake.

  3. I’m dumbfounded. They give him two years but were not willing to do that for Ross, and at best only save $2 million.

    Won’t be surprised if our starting center fielder will be Shane Victorino, who like Uggla, will probably stop hitting well at Turner Field as soon as he puts on the Braves jersey…
