He has struggled to find his groove since the All-Star break going 0-for-27 since he ripped a pinch-hit homer against the Pirates, according to MLB.com.
The Stairs we know and love is the one who lumbers up to the plate in a big situation and delivers with a majestic blast like he did against the Dodgers in the NLCS. But for some reason he just can't seem to get it going again.
“I need one good swing, one good hit to get me going,” said the veteran Stairs. “I’ve been around for a while and I understand it can be a blooper or a bleeder to get you started.”
Stairs has four hits and 11 RBI as a pinch-hitter in 2009 -- let's hope he can add to those totals.
Sometimes all it takes is a little sunshine to break the rainstorm.
