J.J. Hardy has a tendon injury that will put him on the shelf for the rest of the year. One door closes, another one opens, Bill Hall will assume the role of starting SS for the Milwaukee Brewers this season. Hardy is a smooth fielding shortstop, who is a hard worker, and came up along with Rickie Weeks & Prince Fielder as Milwaukee’s future. Hall was given a shot at the starting shortstop job, but was soon bypassed by Hardy when Billy proved to be inconsistent. Although Hall has been slumping lately, he already has 18 home runs, and has made spectacular plays in the field, along with a few miscues here & there. It looks like the Brewers have found their shortstop of the future in Bill Hall.

  1. Nice write-up Teddy! While Hall can dip into prolonged periods of inactivity with the bat, he has always displayed a power stroke, especially for a middle infielder. He certainly has made some sparkling fielding plays of late and can fill in at third base as well. While this is a blow to the Brewers depth, in my humble opinion, I believe their everyday lineup is stronger. Hopefully, the regular status will prove to be a boon to Hall’s career and not the detriment that sometimes occurs in these situations. You see, I have him on two of my fantasy rosters so I am pulling for him! LOL
