Matt Stairs released

18 Comments

We kinda knew this was gonna happen last week when he was designated for assignment, but it’s kind of a bummer anyway: Matt Stairs has been released by the Nationals.

It’s probably retirement/hockey coaching time for Stairs who, at 43, managed only a .154/.257/.169 line with no homers this year.  Overall, however, he had a fine career, hitting .262/.356/.477 hitter with 265 homers.

Happy trails, Matt Stairs.
