Bill Hall signs with the Yankees

Feb 7, 2012, 4:09 PM EDT

Utilityman Bill Hall has signed with the Yankees. This was first reported by … Bill Hall:

Hey, guys who backup A-Rod once in a while get a ring if the Yankees win it all too.

Hall is coming off a horrible season, but he has some power and can play multiple positions, so it works.  And it’s not like it’s a big commitment:  minor league deal with a $600,000 base salary if he makes the team and $600,000 more in incentives based on plate appearances.  He can opt out of the deal if he’s not on the major league roster by April 4.

    Is he in the BSOHL?

      No, but he’s in the Fame of Hall.

    Now that Hall’s on board we may as well cancel the season and give the Yankees their rings.

      This will come as a surprise to the Phillies fans scouting out viewing locations for Philadelphia’s World Championship parade.

        Aint that the truth!

    Why do the Yankees sign these bums? Instead you should sign Guerro or Damon?

    • uyf1950 - Feb 7, 2012 at 5:27 PM

      I’m sure the Yankees would be only to happy to sign both Vlad and Damon to minor league deals. Which is what they signed Hall to. But the reality is both Vlad and Damon monetary expectation far exceed their value to ANY team.

      Its a minor league contract. If/when Vlad or Damon lower there price, the Yankees will sign them too.

    Are the Yanks still trying to get thevover the hill Ibanez?

    WHAT THE ??????????

    Are people really criticizing a minor league deal? Especially one offered by Cashman? He is a minor league deal ninja (see “Colon, Bartolo”, and “Garcia, Freddy” and even “Prior, Mark” who added no value but cost the team nothing).

    At worst they dump him for nothing. At best they have a caddy for ARod who can hit 12-17 HR. Hall’s 2010 was WAY better than Eric Chavez’ 2011, and everyone seems to love the idea of a Chavez reunion.

    Funny that he thinks going to the Yankees means he’ll get a ring…when he’s probably going to be a solid reason why they don’t, in fact, get one. A sporadic hitter and just plain awful defensive player…he’s a downgrade from Nunez if he takes that role.

    • deathmonkey41 - Feb 8, 2012 at 10:00 AM

      He might not be better than Nunez, but he has to be better than Ramiro Pena.

    Seemed like a nice guy and a team player at Houston in 2011. But he couldn’t do anything right. The ASTROS (for gosh sake) released him. Odds he’ll stick in NY seem very low.
