Can you name all the teams Matt Stairs has played for?
I think I got about seven.
He could get another one, depending on how you set your rules. Stairs, who debuted for the Montreal Expos in 1992, has signed a minor-league deal with the Nationals.
If you count the Nationals and Expos as the same (I don't), it could be his 13th different team, if he makes the squad.
Stairs was a long-shot at 42 last year to make the Padres, but did, appearing in 78 games mostly as a pinch hitter. In 111 plate appearances (in 78 games), he hit .232/.306/.475 with six home runs and 16 RBI. He started 15 games last season, 13 in left field, one in right and one at first base. He would likely serve a similar role with the Nations if he made the team. Stairs will turn 43 on Feb. 27.
As for the trivia question answer: A's, Royals, Phillies, Expos, Blue Jays, Pirates, Red Sox, Rangers, Padres, Cubs, Tigers and Brewers.
