Bill Hall Signs With The Astros
Yesterday, the Astros signed somebody who, in my opinion, was one of the best Red Sox players last year. He was a great utility man, playing 7 positions, including pitcher, along with doing quite well at the bat, going .247/18/46. However, now he signed with the Astros for one year and $3.25 million. This year, the Red Sox' bench is looking like Jason Varitek, Mike Cameron, Jed Lowrie, and somebody else who could be Darnell McDonald, Ryan Kalish, Lars Anderson, etc.. That last person could have been Bill Hall except that for some reason, the Red Sox never really seemed interested in resigning him. Adrian Beltre also appears to be close to signing onto the Angels as they offered him 6 years for $90 million. I hope Bill Hall does well in 2011, and we'll all remember his extremely versatile year in 2010.
