i am going to go try to trade for hoffman in all of my leagues right now. bye.

like other posters have said, his velocity is there, hes missing his command. hell find it soon and rattle off another 40 save season.

since the 2003 season he missed with (shoulder surgery?) i have listened to people calling on hoffman to retire and sayinghe is done he has lost his fastball yaddayaddayadda.

in the 4 seasons since he has posted era's of 2.30, 2.97, 2.14, 2.98 and saved 40+ every year. all "without a fastball." in that period he has lost 3, 6, 2, and 5 games.

he is off to a rocky start, but like i said the wise will go shopping for him now. he will be the closer in sd untill he retires, and he when he knows he cant do it anymore he will hang it up, as the greatest closer in history.

Heyman ponders if the time has come... :-) poor Hassellhoffman.
Padres GM Kevin Towers, reached by phone Monday night, insisted Hoffman’s time isn’t near being up. “It hasn’t even crossed my mind what Plan B is,’’ Towers said. “At the end of every year he ends up with 40-plus saves. He’s Mr. Consistency. I haven’t seen any dropoff. He actually has a lot better velocity ... I think he’s going to be fine.’’

Towers isn’t shocked the whispers have started, though. “I think there’s some residual effect after what happened last year,’’ Towers said. “But his stuff is still good. [All] you have to do is look at what he’s done historically. He’s in great shape. He’s in a great frame of mind. I think he’s just tired of being the focus.’’

...In any case, Towers said he isn’t worried about having to tell Hoffman when it’s time. “I think when it does happen, Trevor will know. He’s got too much pride,’’ Towers said. “He’ll know probably before we know. He’s not going to hang on just to hang on. He cares too much for his teammates to do that.’’
