Hoffman Re-Ups With Padres

The Padres brought back Trevor Hoffman today, getting their customary home-town discount.  The deal will pay Hoffman $6.75MM annually and the option on the third year is based on games finished.


There's nothing wrong with this move, considering the price.  Back in late October, Hoffman's agent was talking about $10MM a year.  Hoffman is still a dominant reliever across his 50-60 innings, although Scott Linebrink could easily handle the 9th inning.  The poor guy won't be a free agent until after the 2007 season, at which point he could get Kyle Farnsworth money.
