Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila Agree to $4.35M Deal

Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila agree to $4.35M deal – ESPN.

Yes! Did you know:

He was an All-Star and a Silver Slugger in 2011, his second full year in the major leagues. He led the American League in runners caught stealing in 2011 and ’12.

He hit .303 after the All-Star break last year.

Welcome back to the toughest catcher in the game!

Avila is 27 and has took more balls to the face than Miley Cyrus. You think he gets an incentive clause for getting hit? He should.

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
