QUICK HIT: The Man in the Hall
For the time being, it seems that erstwhile third baseman Billy Hall has become a $24 million utility man for the Milwaukee Brewers. Hall’s batting slump has relegated him to a role as a late inning defensive replacement at third base and he even took a turn in centerfield last night after Mike Cameron’s expulsion from the game. In the past, Hall has balked at the prospect of irregular playing time. Last night’s game reminded us that, if Hall can somehow manage to embrace his new role, he can still be a valuable asset to the team despite his offensive struggles.
