Toby Hall Sucks

I’m sorry, but why are the Mets interested in Toby Hall? Here’s what he’s done offensively since becoming a regular:

OBP/SLG
.293/.376
.295/.380
.300/.366
.315/.368

Yes, you are reading those numbers correctly. Since being installed as a full-time player, Hall has been in constant battle to break the 700 OPS barrier. How hard is to reach this offensive mark of excellence? Well, last year, “only” 207 players did it. Clearly, Hall is in a league of his own.

Okay, okay, lets be fair, catchers are not supposed to hit, right? So how does our boy Toby compare against other major league backstops? In a list that included such great hitters as Rod Barajas and Mike Matheny, Toby Hall ranked 20th in OPS among catchers with 300 or more ABs this year. In 2004, he was 21st best, and the year before he managed to reach 22nd place. Sure, that sucks, but look at that consistency!

So why are the Mets interested in Hall? Your guess is as good as mine. The only thing that Hall does well is throw out runners. That’s great and all, but are you really going to trade for a guy who makes more outs than the league average hitter and the league average catcher and give him ABs just because he throws out a couple of guys out? Logic says no. The Mets say yes.
