Will Matt Stairs stick around long enough to break Larry Walker’s Canadian Games played record?
Matt Stairs has played 1839 games during his 18 seasons (102 g/yr) in MLB. Larry Walker played 1988 games in 17 seasons (116 g/yr). Being only 150 games from breaking the record it should only take 2 more seasons. Plus if Matt plays a game with the Washington Nationals in 2011 he will set an MLB record for most teams played for with 13 (Montreal, Boston, Oakland, Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Texas, Detroit, Toronto, Philadelphia and San Diego). He also holds the MLB record for most career pinch hit HR’s with 23.
