OPTION A: Bill Hall in Milwaukee is getting his playing time cut, he is versatile, his value probably dropped, the explanation given to him was Milwaukee wants another LHB, Wilson Betemit could land us a Bill Hall.
Bill Hall vs LHP .409/.490/.705 and an OPS of 1.195
Washington - Manager Ned Yost and general manager Doug Melvin met before the Brewers' game today with third baseman Bill Hall to talk about losing playing time to Branyan.
With the right-handed hitting Hall batting only .158 against right-handed pitchers, Branyan was called up from Class AAA Nashville over the weekend to provide a left-handed alternative. Yost told Hall it would not be a strict platoon because that would give Branyan most of the playing time.
"He's very, very upset," said Yost. "If he wasn't, I don't know if I'd want him on the team. I told him to keep his head up, keep working."
That explanation did little to appease Hall. And it probably didn't help that Branyan went out in his second game with the Brewers and struck out four times in an 0 for 5 performance.
"Going on the last four years, nothing makes any sense," he said. "My understanding is we needed a left-handed bat in the lineup and I was the odd man out. Does that make any sense? We'll see what happens the next couple of days."
OPTION B: Aaron Boone in Washington could be obtainable by the trading deadline a Greg Kontos/Matt Carson could land him
Aaron Boone vs LHP .371/.450/.657 and an OPS of 1.107
that's what's out there so far...I'll try to find others
OPTION C: Xavier Nady ofcourse we know the price tag for him is ridiculous I mean Pittsburgh is asking for AJack or Tabata until that price tag goes down I don't see it happening but his splits are interesting.
Xavier Nady vs LHP .354/.475/.583 an OPS of 1.058
OPTION D: Garrett Atkins another dandy choice again price tag is the concern but his splits are absolutely off the charts so far.
Garrett Atkins vs LHP .545 .568 .939 an OPS of 1.507
Any other "possible" scenerio feel free to post
