I just want to give out a HUGE thank you to all the people who participated in the support group that met for me today at Tom’s blog:

In case you didn’t know, I’m dealing with Trevor Hoffman loss syndrome right now. These people decided that I needed help, so they got together to tell their stories of players they’ve lost, and to help me through this time. That really meant a lot to me, and your stories really touched me and showed me that I’m not alone in this. Well, I knew that before, but this was a big help. You guys are amazing! We’ve got an incredible group of people here. Wow. I feel so great, you guys. Trevor’s gone, but I’ll be able to deal with it. This gathering made me laugh, it made me cry, and I feel so great right now. You guys are amazing, so thanks again!! Thank you so much to Tom, Jane, Julia, Elizabeth, Jen, Emily, Hyun Young, Homer and Happy. You guys totally made my day, if not my week. So, in an expression of my gratitude, please enjoy these beautiful flowers (Tom LOL):

    Kaybee – you are so very welcomed! We are all here for you – and we just wanted you to know that we have all suffered through the pain of losing a favorite player! Hang in there and Tom has promised to make more cookies for our next meeting. And I’m very sorry that I said mean things about the Yankees. I’ll be good next meeting Jane.

    Losing a favorite player really sucks, but I guess it’s all part of the business side of sports. I know it was tough for us Twins fans to lose Johan Santana, but gaining the exciting Carlos Gomez as part of the deal really helped to ease our grief. I just think the way the Padres’ front office handled the whole thing was really crappy. though. If they had to cut payroll (which is understandable) they should never have made him an offer in the first place!

    Trust me, it does get easier. When you have a lot of young and talented players it helps you to get your mind off the loss. And who knows? Maybe someday Trevor will be part of the organization again!
