Yankees Sign Bill Hall

3:24pm: Hall will earn a base salary of $600K in the Major Leagues and can earn more incentives based on plate appearances, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets.  Hall can opt out of his deal if he isn't on the Major League roster on April 4th.

2:51pm: The Yankees have signed utility infielder Bill Hall, based on his tweet, "IT'S OFFICIAL IM A YANKEE!!!!!!!! #IwannaRing!!!!"  He signed a minor league deal, tweets Erik Boland of Newsday.  Hall is a client of Gaylord Sports Management.

Hall, 32, posted a .211/.261/.314 line in 199 plate appearances for the Astros and Giants last year, playing mostly second base.  In more of a utility role for the 2010 Red Sox, Hall managed 18 home runs in 382 plate appearances.  Hall works out with Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long during the offseason.

If Bill Hall wants a ring, several stores are having their Valentines sales. Yanks will cut him before April.

Yanks never cut anybody.  He’ll sit around on the bench or in AAA and then will spark them whenever the evil empire needs it, in some way, some how….  Man I loathe them. Haha

It’ll be pretty funny if Hall doesn’t make the team out of ST

Arsenio Hall has a better chance of making the team than Bill Hall…

Hall’s reaction puts most girls reactions to their sweet 16th birthday to shame.

Who would follow Bill Hall on Twitter and why?

I’m sure his mom’s church-basement sewing circle would be deeply offended by your tone, there, mister….

Always kind of nice to see some players still getting as excited as a 12 year old on his little league team xD

Who needs the media when we can get news from the Official Twitter?!

This guy will even pitch if you let him.

Hall WILL make the team. I would guess the Yankees’ bench is complete:
Andruw Jones, Cervelli, Hall, Nunez

Now they need to find a DH and their off-season is complete.

Hall’s hitting weakness has been exposed in that Google ad…he won’t last long.

well, he’s technically a yankee. a scranton/wilkes-barre yankee. but a yankee nonetheless.

Negative WAR 2 out of the past 3 seasons. -1.6 WAR last season. Poor on-base skills.

So if i tweet that im a yankee does that mean im on the yankees too?

I’d boo him in his Fenway return, but I just don’t care.

why? he was effective for boston

3 years 6 months ago

He was just a warm body. His best defense came in the 1 inning he pitched! That’s not good.

your expectations for backup players are unrealistic

3 years 6 months ago

No way. I SAID I wouldn’t boo him! Also, he unfortunately played half a season in 2010. Perhaps that Boston spotlight was biased for a career bench player

Guys, relax. He was just retweeting Colon’s “#IWANNARINGDING” but ran out of characters.

He just seemed to be lost at the plate last year with both the Astros and Giants.   Maybe he has something left in the tank, but based on last year I doubt it.   Having said that he did have a good 2010 with the Red Sox.   50/50 shot.

The yankees are looking to add a lefty bat?  You’re doing it right.
