Why is Collin Hall still playing right now? He’s batting blowing .230 and has played terrible defense. If his name didn’t end in “Hall” he would not be starting. LITERALLY every game he is bating 1-6 in the order and playing center field. Reminds me of Rec league daddy baseball. I seriously Hope he improves because he’s is playing terrible baseball right now.
Assuming my math is correct, it might have something to do with him putting up a .333/.461/.571 slash line in his last six games. And if you want to stretch it back to the NC State series it's a .281/.425/.468 slash line over his last 9 games. If that's terrible I don't know what to tell you. That's great production from anywhere on the field let alone CF. He had a slow start but he's been very good since the first game of the NC State series. Before that he was still getting his walks so it's not like he wasn't seeing the ball. He appears to have cut down on the strikeouts and his power his starting to show up in game. Let's hope it continues.
As for his defense he's got 2 years and change of solid defensive work. I'd put more stock in that than a handful of mistakes at the beginning of the season.
To be frank, if his name didn't end in "Hall" I doubt you guys would be so eager to bench the kid when he hasn't even cracked 50 at bats on the season and is finally starting to come on at the plate. Trying to insinuate his dad is showing him favoritism is lazy at best.
