YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great day.

This may, in fact, be the happiest day of my Brewer fandom. (Not that there's been a lot of competition in the last few years.)

Bill Hall will be a Brewer through 2010, and probably through 2011!

Here are the details:

Hall gets a salary of $3 million this year, plus a $500,000 signing bonus. His salary for 2008 is $4.8 million, followed by $6.8 million in 2009 and $8.4 million in 2010. The club option for 2011 is $9.25 million, bringing the full value of the contract to $32.75 million.
Al calls it "a bargain and a half," which I'd say is an understatement and a half. We've essentially bought out his first two years of free agency, gotten a discount on this year (!) and will have him below market if he produces anything like he has for the last year or two.

What wonderful news.
