Mets, L-O-L

The Phightin' Phils are now up 4 games in the NL East thanks to a game tying RBI by Matt Stairs and a 3 run HR from RAUUUUUUUUUUL in the 2nd extra innings win in a row. Overall it was a great series with a great outcome.


Suck it, Sean Green.

Returning to the scene of the crime.

Game one verse the Dodgers went so well due to the amazingness that is Hollywood Hamels that Uncle Cholly didn't have to use his not-so-secret Dodger smasher, Matt Stairs, off the bench. However, with Shane Victorino playing day-to-day with a bruised hip, we may very well see Mateo take to right field with Jayson Werth playing center.

So let's all hope and pray to the baseball deities that lighting will strike twice and Mr. Escalera gets his chance to win another game for us with a moon shot homerun.

Once again, here is that infamous at bat:

Long time no see.

Sorry about the lack of posts guys. We here at Stairs' Way to Heaven have been rather busy with vacations, work, school, and more work. Excuses, excuses, I know.

Anyway, I'm sure most of you have seen the recent tallies of the AllStar Voting. Utley and Ibanez have their spots pretty much locked up while Rollins, Victorino, and Howard are on the cusp. Unfortunately Matt Stairs didn't even get a honorable mention. It's looking more and more likely that Mateo will not represent the NL in the outfield.

However, there may still be hope for the Canadian Wood to be represented in St. Louis... and that hope is the HOMERUN DERBY.

Check out our friends over at StairsForTheDerby and vote!
