Brandon Laird Claimed Off Waivers By Astros

The Houston Astros have claimed recently designated Brandon Laird off of waivers and will acquire him. This basically just became a Steve Pearce for Brandon Laird trade if you think about it. As much as I hate to lose Brandon Laird, and as much as I am shocked that he even got claimed to be honest, I am happy for him because I think he will get a starting gig on a rebuilding team that will be very patient with him.

Laird will never be anything more then an all or nothing type hitter with around a .250 average and 20 home run power and never really had an opportunity in New York. Always being blocked by Alex Rodriguez this is a great opportunity for Laird to show what he is really made of. Good luck Brandon I hope you make the best out of this opportunity!
