Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers may be looking to deal Bill Hall, if they can get the Mike Lamb deal finalized. He lists the Yankees as a team that has expressed interested in the utility player.

Hall has spent substantial amounts of time at shortstop, third base, center field and second base. His offense numbers are atrocious. He's a lifetime .258 AVG/.316 OBA/.455 SLG hitter and his line last year was .225/.293/.396. Somehow, he hit 30 home runs in 2006, which led to him getting a raise that now sticks out pretty badly. He's set to make $6.8 million in 2009 and $8.4 million in 2010. He also has an option for 2011 with a $500,000 buyout. Ouch. He'll be 29 this month.

Rosenthal says that Hall is close friends with free agent starter CC Sabathia, as Mike Cameron is. CC was on the team for a few months - he must make friends really easy. He can make some new ones! We don't need to import friends to sign the lefty.

That's not all from Rosenthal. Though it's most likely that John Smoltz will go back to the Braves, if he is healthy enough, Rosenthal says that the Braves are waiting to make an offer until they are sure he'll be ready to pitch. This is creating an opportunity where other teams could, at least, make a pitch to the 41 year old Smoltz. But, again, after 20 years in Atlanta, it's hard for me to see him moving on to another team.
