It looks like Trevor is very close to signing with the Brewers. I am pretty relieved. I would be so upset if he signed with the Dodgers. Well, Trevor wants to get 600 saves. I think he will be able to do that in TWO years. So maybe the Brewers are offering a better option for 2010. I just hope that deal gets done and over. That way I can finally come to terms with the fact that he’s gone. You know, it’s not so much that we’re losing an incredible players, but the thing that really bothers me is the way he left. It was shameful to the organization in way that they took care of this. Pathetic. Now I must share this quote and then rip my front office: “We’re not getting into a bidding war with anybody over Trevor,” Moores said. “It’ll be strange to see him in another uniform, especially for me. But it’s rare that any player spends his whole career with one organization anymore. I hope he has a great year.” Imagine that quote in an extremely sarcastic tone. They won’t even TRY to get Trevor. They won’t make their fans feel better in the fact that their team tried their hardest. No, the Padres never wanted Trevor back at all. They just lazily flopped a pathetic $4 million contract on the table, knowing that he won’t accept that disgrace. They let him walk away. They wouldn’t meet with him, wouldn’t talk to him about why they did it. They kicked him out the door with no good-byes. Look back at the quote. Let me rephrase it: “We don’t want Trevor. It might be weird to see him in another uniform, but that’s what we wanted all along. Maybe he’ll get 40 saves and win a World Series.” Wow, what a pathetic quote. What a pathetic front office! Anyways, Trevor will get signed today. Hopefully by the Brewers. I will be pretty sad…
Well, the official word is not out yet, but it will be soon. Trevor Hoffman has signed with the Brewers. Oh boy…
Kaybee – be brave! The way things are going us Red Sox Fans might not have Varitek back either! Damn – this off season is killing us all!
To make it even worse, Smoltz is going to the Boston! I never even thought of him going anywhere else. Same for Trevor before they decided on not bringing him back. This offseason has definitely been killing almost everyone with the exception of the New York teams.
Sorry for the loss to your team…i hope your team gets sold soon so you can have a trustworthy guy paying the bills.
Kaybee – sorry that you’re losing Trevor. It seems like the Padres are going through some tough times right now. Hang in there.
