Bill Hall....what say you?

Postby RynMan » Wed Nov 01, 2006 12:20 am

Career year in 2006? He put up some great numbers.

What can we expect in 07? Can we even anticipate him in a full time role?

Age 27 year this year so it's not like its a veteran fluke.

He hit his bombs pretty consistently through the year, so it wasn't like he had a 15 HR June or anything.....

How bout some thoughts?

His EYE was .39 which is pretty bad.

With numbers like that studies have shown 87% of batters with similar EYE ratios had their power numbers decrease the next season.

His AVG went down, his Ks went up too. I think he just opened up his swing but those numbers.

So I don't think he's a good bet to repeat his 2006 season.

Do you have a source for those studies?

I'm not questioning the validity of the statement, I'm just interested in that topic. What range of BB:K (EYE) ratios are included in the 87%?

Anyone less than .50 was in that group. The source is baseballhq and its a pay site so I can't give you all the info.

If he gets the same number of ABs then I've got him something like....

.269 Avg
26 HR
80 Rbi
90 Runs
12 SB

....otherwise I'd have him lower if I knew he may split more time.

Based strictly on a warm & fuzzy for Bill after he raked for me the past couple of years, I'll give him .287 & 32 HR. The rest of the numbers look good. Should have more than 12 SBs though.

No way would I say 06 was his career year. Don't forget he's just 26 and should be coming into his prime.

An aside, from KPPL:

Nov 1: Adam McCalvy, of Milwaukee.Brewers.MLB.com, reports Milwaukee Brewers IF Bill Hall will be named the Brewers' team MVP.

Utility-man extraordinaire Bill Hall was named the Brewers team MVP for the 2006 season. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Hall was named first on 10 of the 11 ballots cast by members of the Milwaukee chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Hall led the team with 35 home runs, 85 RBI and 39 doubles.

I think he's got the potential to steal 13 bases...
