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.
