Goodbye Bill Hall

I was originally planning on covering Bill Hall in an Unknown Heroes post, but this will work. Hall yesterday signed with the Houston Astros to be their main second-baseman. Good for him, I am happy he found a way to be a regular again. Last year, Hall was something of a jack of all trades for the Red Sox, and he was productive too.

Hall played in 119 games at a variety of positions. He hit .247/.316/.456/.772 with 18 home runs and 46 RBIs. He also stole nine bases. Hall has never been a great threat to get on base, but he has enough pop in his bat to be a decent option off the bench.

Hall played 55 games in left field, 51 at second base, nine in right field, seven in center field, six at shortstop, five at third base, and even one game pitching. He pitched one inning and faced three batters, getting all three out.

Hall was a good superutility player, but he found a starting job, there was no chance at Boston matching that.
