(Matt Stairs seen here on the night he did something for the Nats. Screen grab via MLB.com)
"He never got sharp, and we never really got him sharp. And he didn't have the kind of production he wanted, or that the organization wanted."
(Davey Johnson, via Nats Insider, 7/27/2011)
And so, the Nationals part ways with perhaps the most useless player to ever don a Curly W cap. Well, besides Austin Kearns.
Remember that one time, when Matt Stairs actually did something and then got a bucket of bubble gum dumped on his head, followed by a shaving cream pie? That was awesome.
(Pssst...Hey, Matt! Stick around, we hear the Nats might be looking for a hitting coach real soon!)
