    Toby Hall loves the D-Rays

    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."
    Here's a link to the story...

    Nice. So, I'm guessing he turned that deal down?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    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.

    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....

    Re: Toby Hall loves the D-Rays

    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.
    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
