Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com is reporting that Trevor Hoffman has enjoyed his first season with the Brewers, to the point where he'd like to sign on for a second go-around.
Hoffman, 43 in October, has said that everyone in Milwaukee has made him feel more than welcome, and that he doesn't want to go through the adjustment phase of joining a new organization again.
After spending 16 seasons with the Padres, Hoffman signed a one-year, $6MM contract with the Brewers this offseason. He's earning every penny of that, despite missing the first three weeks of the year. Hoffman has racked up 31 saves in 34 opportunities while posting a sparkling 2.00 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP, and holding opponents to just a .204 average. He's earned an additional $400K in incentives so far, and still has time left to earn more.
Hoffman's 585 career saves rank first all-time, and he's closing in on becoming the first to ever hit the 600 mark. It sounds like he'd like to hit that number and keep going; Hoffman says he wants to keep playing as long as he can contribute.
