What is the purpose of Matt Stairs?


I like Matt Stairs. He's a chubby 43 year old Canadian. What's not to love? He also hit one of the most significant homeruns in my beloved Philadelphia Phillies history (moonshot off Jonathan Broxton in '08 playoffs). However, it's hard to believe he still holds down gainful employment. The pinch hitting extraordinaire is currently with the Washington Nationals, but I have absolutely no idea what purpose he is serving for the organization. In 25 games he's posted an atrocious .095/.296/.095 slash line. Pitchers themselves have a better chance at getting a base knock than Stairs (especially when Livan Hernandez and Jason Marquis are in your rotation).

Stairs had his days in the sun over his 19 MLB seasons, dating back to 1992. He's played for the Montreal Expos, Oakland Athletics, Kansas City Royals, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers, Detroit Tigers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and now the Nationals batting .263/.836 with 265 homeruns and 897 RBI. He has 23 pinch hit homeruns, a MLB record. He's a good guy, but it's time that the Nationals moved on and let him retire (which he'd hopefully choose to do).

Since most of the Duracell akkus are rechargeable it reduces the household waste that adversely affects the environment. So, if you want to buy Thinkpad batteries, Thinkpad adapters or laptops consider all the significant things along with the prices suitability. That's why Daizi Xheng, a Chinese developer, has developed modified Nokia Cell Phones that run on soft drinks.
