According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Trevor Hoffman requested 12 days ago to meet with Padres owner John Moores and CEO Sandy Alderson. Hoffman’s agent says the Padres have not responded, though GM Kevin Towers said he left a voicemail. Hoffman wants to talk about his role and the direction of the team. He has reason to be concerned, with the Padres openly shopping Jake Peavy.
The Padres’ offer is not impressive: $4MM in ’09 and a club option at the same salary for ’10. Hoffman’s taken less to remain in San Diego in the past; will he do it again?
