Bill Hall: Eyes on Improvement

A topic we neglected to touch on during last week’s Winter Meetings was Bill Hall’s recent LASIK eye surgery. Hall has used contact lenses to this point and, as displayed by his numbers these past two seasons, they weren’t helping him see the ball as well as he would’ve liked.

Maybe it’s my unwavering affinity for William, but I think this procedure is the first step to a revitalized Hall in 2009. And figuring we have an oft-unused “Predictions” tag, I feel like I should stake early claim on calling (more “hoping”, “praying” or any similar term) a Bill Hall bounce-back.

2009 Predictions (assuming he remains a Brewer and gets at least 400 plus plate appearances):
.280 AVG, 25 HR, 70 RBI and fewer fielding errors

I guess we’ll see.
