Bill Hall's Last Chance

I received the following text message this morning from my roommate (Everybody's Favorite Life Insurance Salesman):
EFLIS: "Bill Hall is standing next to me at Starbucks.."

I responded with: "Did you catch an autograph?"

EFLIS responded with: "No...I said take care Billy...good luck tonight...as he was walking out."

This is it Billy. Tonight you better do something good. You're up early today...you've got your expresso in...and the Brewers are up 5.5 games in the wild card with 25 games left.

You making $5 million this year and you are statistically the worst offensive player on the team. For christ's sake...BEN SHEETS has a better offensive VORP than you.

But none of that matters. That is the past. I'm not asking for much tonight. I want just your basic 1 for 3 with a walk and a double. Maybe a run or an rbi. NO STRIKEOUTS. If you do that I will not bash you in this blog for the entire month of September. Against my better judgment, I will even do the Bill Hall chant next week when I'm at the park. Do it Billy. Do something.

Sincerely,
Woz

Ha ha. Your room mate was meeting with me (unless there was another FLIS there). Billy Hall was indeed waiting for a Grande Caramel Machioto.

I thought all the Starbucks were closed?

So both Gamel and Br*d N*ls*n were called up... Who's going to play where and when, do we think?

Nelson grounded out to end the game yesterday.

That's about as much playing time as he can expect.

And Gamel/ Escobar?

Send Nelson's fat ass back to Huntsville. No reason to play the other guys unless we're up/down by 5+.

I think they only brought up Nelson with the hopes he would show something and could be used as trade bait.

He's obviously not the first baseman of the future any longer.

He may want to go after a contract with Jenny Craig instead. Holy fuck, does that guy even have a neck anymore? He makes fatty McTurd Pants look thin.
