This is a fantastic article I came across on the Sox website:

I'm really looking forward to seeing Toby healthy. Last year was not fair to make an evaluation of him. I was very optimistic that he would have been a significant contributor to the team last year as the 2nd catcher.

It was kind of a miracle that Toby Hall played at all last year - which showed that he really wanted to play and earn the respect of his teammates.

When healthy, he's a solid hitter with some good power, and has decent defensive skills. Hall could become a significant reason for the White Sox reclaiming the status of major contender. AJ would get more rest, and produce even better offensive and defensive results in 08. This will make a good lineup even stronger.


:cool:

Whey Toby throws out his first baserunner we will be so happy.

I'm just happy he will be 100% this year. Most players wouldn't have come back as quickly from the injury he sustained. Give the guy a break.

Yes we will.

The guy has my respect either way. Playing through a torn labrum and dislocated shoulder? I can't believe he could even get the ball back to the pitcher.

If he's healthy, it's also going to give us another bat off the bench to use in PH situations or where you don't want AJ to catch over 10 innings in a game in the middle of a big stretch of games. You never want to have your back-up C be your first option, but it is something to consider in some situations.

I didn't know that a torn labrum can heal back up to 100% without surgery.

That's what I was thinking. Is this is a risky surgery? I understand not doing it during the season and trying to play through, but...

i have a very good friend that has a torn labrum and he golfs 4 days a week and plays tennis 3 days a week. He does all kinds of exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles. Its sounds like Toby Hall avoided surgery by doing the same thing. By the way, my friend is 73 years pld.
