Bill Hall, starting left fielder? That's what it looks like:
"I asked him afterward if he felt acclimated to the outfield and he said yes," said Melvin. "I think there's probably a pretty good chance he'll move to the outfield (for the Brewers). I personally think he's better suited to left field."
Left field, eh? Why not center?
Roberts, 34, would be a perfect fit for the Brewers. He would add much-needed speed, provide a legitimate leadoff hitter and solid defender in center and is known for being a positive clubhouse presence.
You're telling me that an outfield of Hall/Roberts/Hart is better than an outfield of Gross-Mench/Hall/Hart? Not likely.
This piece has a frustrating air of finality about it, summed up neatly by this passage:
"We do have numbers in the outfield," said Melvin, who indicated he might try to thin the herd via the trade market.
