I never thought he would leave. Unless the Tribe gave him the third year guaranteed and they didn't. Probably a good no sign by the Tribe as they would have had to pay him about 22 mil over 3 years guaranteed. Its hard to guarantee all those years for a 38 year old pitcher with a shoulder problem.

SD had to keep him. Not a bad contract either. Good deal for the Pads.

As soon as we signed your brother to coach 3B, I knew you weren't going anywhere Trevor, but I'll admit you had me a tad bit worried for a minute there ..

Ya this sucks since this deal fell through. It would have been nice to have Hoffman closing out games instead of the shaky "Slim" Wickman :-[
