This saddens me. Oh, it was inevitable — Stairs is 43 and is hitting .154/.257/.169 with no homers — but it strikes me that this may very well be it for the formerly-bemulleted one. Depending on how you count Montreal and Washington, Stairs played for 12 or 13 teams in his 19-year career.
For that career he’s a .262/.356/.477 hitter with 265 homers. Unless someone becomes really desperate for a lefty in the twilight, that may be it.
