I wanted to do an article on Toronto Blue Jay's outfielder Matt Stairs. Matt is a 39-year old outfielder who has bounced around quite a bit in his career, with stints in Montreal, Boston, Oakland, Chicago, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Detroit, Texas and now Toronto. In his career, Stairs is only a .266 hitter, but has really surged this season. As of this morning, Matt is hitting .294 with a whopping 12 HR's and 28 RBI's. This is all combined in a package boasting a .361 OBP. It is quite a great story that Matt has blossomed somewhere, as he hasn't a good year since 1998 when he hit .294 with 26 HR's and 106 RBI's. I'm sure pulling for him to continue his success.
