Hall Gets Extension

Monday, February 5, 2007

The Brewers and Bill Hall have agreed to a four year deal, worth 24 million dollars. The Brewers might have made an excellent deal. Hall has proved he can hit 30 plus home runs, with an average around .270. Although his numbers will probably drop, the Brewers can at least expect 25-30 home runs every year. With players like Dave Roberts and Juan Pierre getting 9-10 million a year, this will go down as one of the best position player signings this off season. Hall, who will make 3.5 next year, then 4.8, 6.8, and 8.4 the remaining three years, batted .270 with 35 HR and 85 RBI.

Why would Hall's numbers "probably drop"? He's only 27 years old, and really only started coming into his own as a hitter two years ago. If anything I think his numbers will steadily INCREASE each of these four years. I'm still not totally sold on Milwaukee's decision to move him to the outfield, but this was a FANTASTIC signing.

i dont mean signifcantly, but i think 35 homeruns will drop and then increase...i think it is kind of a fluke but they will still go up
