Laird no Angel, but he'll do in Detroit

Not only is the addition of Gerald Laird not quite as sexy as Detroit's addition of Ivan Rodriguez behind the plate a few years ago, Laird ranked second on the Tigers' wish list.

The Tigers first were interested in the Los Angeles Angels' Mike Napoli, sources told CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler, but were rebuffed.

So they made the deal for Laird.
