On Gerald Laird 

An AP piece on Gerald Laird, and how he not only lost his starting job when he got hurt, but is getting sent back down to the minors.

From the article: "We made the decision we're going to let Rod do the bulk of the catching," general manager John Hart said. "With the job he did last year, he deserves it."

Given that Barajas was a pretty mediocre catcher last year -- and was abysmal after the All-Star Break -- I'm not sure how the job he did means he deserves the starting catching job.

I still expect Laird to be packaged with John Hudgins for a starting pitcher in the next week to ten days.
