Matt Stairs - Lead Glove Outfielder

Bugs and Cranks (via Deadspin) enjoys the defensive outfield stylings of Matt Stairs almost as much as we do:
Matt Stairs, Blue Jays — The modern-day Pete Incaviglia doesn’t get to grace the field much these days, but when he does, it’s a sight to behold. Never a master of geometry, Stairs takes terrible angles on fly balls and if a ball would happen to ricochet off a wall, he might never find it. Stairs was used almost exclusively as a DH last season, but apparently the Blue Jays have the same sense of humor as we do.
But as we said, plop the Pride of Tay Creek at first, and we've got nothin' but love.
