Bill Hall has a job for 2011, which is more than a lot of folks can say. And reportedly he’ll be paid $3 million-plus by the Houston Astros, which ain’t bad. The Nettleton product is headed for his fourth team in what will be his 10th MLB season. He was found wanting in Boston after hitting just .247 in a utility role in 2010. The Astros have Hall, 30, targeted for their second base job. He’s started fewer games there than he has at third, shortstop or in the outfield in his career, and his fielding percentage at second base is .960, not so good. But he does bring pop to the position, having hit 18 homers last season. Ane he’s a good athlete, so he’ll make some plays on the bases and in the field. This could be a good fit.
