Kukla's Korner Hockey

On Monday, Matt Stairs will be home in Bangor, Maine, contemplating his next big challenge: coaching the boys' varsity hockey team at John Bapst Memorial High. "I'll become a full-time dad again, and getting ready for the hockey season," said Stairs, who's not eligible for the postseason. Stairs grew up in New Brunswick, Canada, and played much more hockey than baseball as a kid. He continued to play as a adult, before "I stopped about five years ago because of a bad Achilles (tendon)." What does he stress as a coach? "Straight offense," Stairs said before going 1-for-5 with an RBI in the Tigers' 9-7 loss to Kansas City. "To heck with defense, I want offense."
