Yankees in “serious talks” with Bill Hall, who may be in the Best Shape of His Life

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees are in “serious talks” with Bill Hall.

This would obviously be for a bench/utility role.  Hall had a horrible 2011 season, but he was useful in 2010 for the Red Sox — 18 homers in 342 plate appearances — and could possibly still have a little life left in that bat.

More important for our purposes: back in December, Rosenthal reported that Hall had “lost 15 pounds to regain foot speed.”

We’ll need eyewitness confirmation in Tampa next month, but for now I think we can make Hall a preliminary BSOHL candidate.
