Is Hoffman willing to be a setup man?

Postby Music2004Man » Tue Nov 22, 2005 5:05 pm

I was just curious if anyone knew if he was willing to be a setup man or if he would close wherever he ended up? If he doesn't stay with the Pads where do you guys see him going?

Thanks

No chance he'd set up. The man is a closer. End of discussion.

I don't think there's a chance he'll become a setup man.

My opinion is that he goes to Cleveland as his first choice, followed by Baltimore.

I imagine that if a team were willing to pay him $20 million annually, he would consider it.

Hoffman setting up? I think I just heard wrveres and marver heads explode. :-D If he leaves the Pads he will be a closer. Atlanta is said to have some interest.

I don't want to make anyones heads explode. I understand that he has one of the best save percentages in baseball over the last couple of years I was just trying to get a feel for if it was a possibility.

I don't think he'll go to Cleveland because they don't have the money to spend. Baltimore looks like a good possibility though (why wouldn't they just retain Ryan for less money :-? )

$20 mil per year? Why, that would make him the highest-paid closer in all of baseball.

Hmm... :-?

I believe I just read a news release in one of the cafe forums that stated he wants to be the highest paid closer in history (or currnelty?). That sounds he's not very flexable on the set-up vs. closer thing...
