Just Wondering

Do you remember when Matt Stairs was a Chicago Cub?

I wish I could forget.

Professional hitter? Pffft!

He replaced Mark Eugene Grace, who appeased the fans in the stands and in the bars.

While he won't go to Cooperstown, he'll always be remembered as one of the all-time great Cubs.

Mike Fontenot should be honored to wear his jersey number.


Grace's career numbers:
  • .303 batting average
  • .383 on-base percentage
  • 2,445 hits
  • 511 doubles
  • Three-time All-Star
  • Four-time Gold Glove Winner
Stairs' career numbers:
  • .266 batting average
  • .358 on-base percentage
  • 1,313 hits
  • 283 doubles
  • 0 All-Star Game appearances
  • 0 Gold Gloves
As a Cub, Stairs posted a .250/.358/.462 line with 17 homers and 61 ribbies.

I guess now would be a good time to tell you that Stairs hit the game-winning home run in the Philadelphia Phillies' Game 4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Yes. The same Dodgers that eliminated the Cubs in the first-round.

I think I'm gonna go throw up now.
