Tigers Winter Meeting Happenings

The Tigers popped the cherry at baseball's Las Vegas winter meetings, acquiring catcher Gerald Laird from the Texas Rangers on Monday.

Laird split time with Jarrod Saltalamacchia last year and posted some impressive numbers for limited playing time.  The Tigers gave up two prospects, which sucks.  

The Tigers needed a catcher, so it was a needed move.  Was it necessarily profitable?  Who knows.  For now, all I have to say is "meh."

For now, we're reportedly in contact with the Mariners about J.J. Putz, who would be a huge pickup.  More updates and appropriate analysis to come.
