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.
