Well, this news is below average.
Get well soon, Rickie.
We're about to get a big dose of Craig Counsell and Casey McGehee in the Brewers lineup for the remainder of 2009.
Another option is to see if Gamel can hack it at 3B and move Hall over to 2B, but Hall has been so good defensively at 3B that I'd be hesitant to do that given what we think (know?) about Gamel's defense.
