is burning a lot of bridges. 8-o

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."

I love Rotoworld's analysis on this

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.

Would Toby Hall even be a major league player if he had not played for the lowly Devil Rays of the last 5 years? I think not.

Exactly. He can't hit and he can't throw people out, and he is horrible handiling pitchers. HMMMM sounds like a great catcher to me. He is also a jerk, i met him and he was really full of himself.
