With a hat tip to Ken Rosenthal, it appears that ex-Astro Bill Hall, who recently cleared waivers and was released, has found plenty of suitors already:
Hall’s versatility and power should continue to get him job offers, so this is not really surprising news. Hall may not have hit well with the Astros, but it was just two months. It’ll take more than that to wash away everyone’s memories of him with the Red Sox last year.
Which just makes it all the more perplexing that Wade didn’t try to hold onto him and give him four starts a week in advance of the trade deadline, but given how he handled the Brett Myers and Roy Oswalt situations last summer, it’s clear that his flaws as a general manager don’t stop at handing second basemen more money than they are worth.
