17 RBIs is great production? It's true he's a better hitter vs. LHP but he gets so few ABs vs. LHP that strategy is pretty impractical.
And you can bench him vs. RHP starter only to find he connected vs. LHP reliever.
Bottom line, if you can absorb the mediocre BA, Hall pays off with great HR numbers for 2B / SS. You just gotta let Bill be Bill.
Too bad he's not stealing bases this year. A measly six in '06 vs. 18 last.
