    Bill Hall to sign with Astros

    Hall will play 2B in Houston, odds are Keppinger gets traded.

    Bill Hall anywhere in the NL Central is bad news for the Reds.

    Well at least Oswalt & Berkman are no longer there, so they won't have all the Reds killers

    The way I see it, this gives him time for regression to the mean to set in...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    If he could just play every game against the Reds they'd already be working on his HoF plaque...

    Re: Bill Hall to sign with Astros

    wasn't Keppinger their best or at least most consistent offensive player last year? I'd rather have him than Cairo.

    btw if this was a poll you could go ahead and put me in the "scared" column when it comes to Mr. Hall

    He padded his stats against the Reds in the no pitching era. Most of the Reds killers still in the majors did the same.
