Tigers Sign Gerald Laird to a One Year Contract; Fanbase Immediately Panics

By

Ok, the bad news first: the Tigers have signed Gerald Laird to be their backup catcher. The good news? This D4L-original photoshop is now relevant again.

Gerald Laird

In all honesty, the Tigers could have done A LOT worse than Laird as a backup catcher going into next season. Laird is a good defensive catcher and already knows most of the Tigers’ pitching staff. If this signing prevents another playoff pukefest from Alex Avila, then it’s well worth the $1-2 million he will be paid next season.
