Congrats to Gerald Laird

Congratulations to Gerald Laird, named the PCL's best defensive catcher in the latest BA "Best Tools" survey.

Of course, the same survey said Derek Jeter is the best defensive shortstop in the A.L., so feel free to take it with a grain of salt.

Other notables...Thomas Diamond was named the best pitching prospect in the Cal League, with Danks getting "best curveball" there.

Ruddy Yan was the best baserunner in the Texas League. Adrian Gonzalez was the best defensive first baseman in the PCL.

And in the majors, Teixeira and Blalock were each named the second best defensive first baseman and third baseman, respectively, in the A.L.
