DISGRUNTLED

and wants to be

TRADED now

Wouldn’t you know it dissension on the MLB team with the most African American players the Milwaukee Brewers. But first an explanation or definition if you prefer our vocabulary lesson to keep Box readers smarter than anyone else.

DISGRUNTLED means as noted in the Oxford Dictionary of the English language ” angry or dissatisfied.” Simple and straight forward unambiguous and a prefect description of Milwaukee 3rd Baseman Bill Hall. So what’s the Story ?

Let us quote sources

here is MLB.com

” MILWAUKEE — For the second time during the Brewers’ current home stand, Bill Hall is taking his displeasure public. On Monday night, Hall’s agent, Terry Bross, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Hall wants the Brewers to trade him. Hall’s displeasure stems from the team’s decision to split starts at third base between Hall and lefty-swinging Russell Branyan.”

” Since Branyan’s promotion from Triple-A Nashville on May 24, Hall has not started a game against a right-handed pitcher. He’s hitting .162 (22-for-136) against right-handers this season, including a ground out Monday night against D-backs reliever Tony Pena.”

“If Billy’s not going to be an everyday player, it’s probably best for him and the team to be traded,” Bross told the newspaper. “They could get a pitcher for him that would really help the team. I’m sure there are some teams out there that could use a third baseman or shortstop.”

What’s that you want

more than just ONE source

USA Today they say

HALL BRISTLES

at 3B platooning

” MILWAUKEE — Bill Hall has patiently gone along with the Milwaukee Brewers’ ever-changing plans for him in the field, switching from utility player to center fielder to third baseman over the past three seasons.”

“Now he wishes his team would be more patient with his struggles at the plate against right-handed pitching. And he’s not sure why he’s being singled out for reduced playing time when some of his teammates are struggling, too.”

” Obviously, they’re not happy with me hitting off righties. I’m not happy with me hitting off righties,” Hall said. “(But) I’m not the only one that’s struggling with right-handed pitching – or pitching in general. Hall is hitting .220 with 9 home runs and 22 RBIs going into Tuesday night’s game against Atlanta, .409 against lefties and .158 against righties.”

” In response to Hall’s struggles Milwaukee brought veteran Russell Branyan up from Triple-A Nashville over the weekend. Branyan, a left-handed batter who was hitting .359 in Nashville, has replaced Hall in two games and was in the lineup against Braves right-hander Tim Hudson Tuesday.”

” Brewers manager Ned Yost said he expected Hall to be upset with the move. “If Bill Hall was happy about it, I wouldn’t want him on this team,” Yost said.”
