From FoxSports Rumor Section


Ex-Rays catcher Toby Hall, nontendered by the Dodgers, said several teams called and he expected better options (Phillies? White Sox? Yankees?) than a minor-league contract the Rays might offer. "That was funny," Hall said. "I guess it would be a minor-league contract because they're a minor-league team."

Rotoworld fires back at Toby.


Way to burn those bridges, Toby. The club gave you more than 2,000 at-bats even though you never once managed a 700 OPS. Your OBP for the club was under .300, and you never came close to matching the 19 homers you hit at Triple-A Durham in 2001. If the Rays weren't much more than a minor league team during your tenure, well, it's in part because you weren't much more than a minor league player.

Rotoworld fires back at Toby.Not to mention his current team did not find him worthy of a contract.

HALL, NO?: The Yanks are interested in free-agent catcher Toby Hall (who was non-tendered by the Dodgers) as Jorge Posada's backup, but a person familiar with Hall's thinking said he'll first pursue a job with a club promising the opportunity for more playing time. Philadelphia, which recently lost Mike Lieberthal to L.A., is considered a strong possibility....

Toby Hall signed a 2 year contract w/ a club option for 2009 with the Chicago White Sox today.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox and free-agent catcher Toby Hall agreed Sunday on a two-year, $3.65 million contract that includes a club option for 2009.

Hall, 31, will earn $1.75 million in 2007 and 2008 and likely will back up A.J. Pierzynski. The White Sox hold a $2.25 million option with a $150,000 buyout for 2009.

Hall combined to hit .259 (72-for-278) with 17 doubles, eight home runs and 31 RBI in 85 games for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Los Angeles Dodgers last season.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Hall -- who debuted with Tampa Bay in 2000 and was traded to the Dodgers in late June -- is a career .265 hitter with 116 doubles, 44 home runs and 259 RBI. He has thrown out 116 of 359 attempted base stealers.

He is mostly there to give AJ a rest and to hit against lefties which he has a career batting average against around 290. The sox got what they were searching for in a back up i like the signing.
