Trevor Hoffman Wants To Play Slow-Pitch Baseball For Your Team
Trevor Hoffman might actually be creating a small scale bidding war between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Insiders are saying that the Dodgers have the inside track due to Hoffman having his family in beautiful, overcrowded Los Angeles of Anaheim, CA. And by insiders, I mean other blogs. I’m not ashamed to say that I have no pride.
But I’ll pose this question: Would you take the career saves leader? Sure, he’s great in the clubhouse and dynamite with the ladies. He also was part of the golden age of Sportscenter commercials. That era died with the arrival of Eli Manning. What’s not to love?
Alright, I’ll be honest. As a Laker supporter, I’m still recovering from Karl Malone. I don’t need to see another player I’ve hated for years become someone I have to sort of embrace as a Dodger fan whenever I watch mlb.tv. The idea of Hoffman setting up for Jonathan Broxton makes me want to punch Dodgers games in the face next year. If Rookie of the Year taught us anything, the ‘Floater’ might work one time, but make it your go-to pitch, and the creepy steroid guy won’t miss it again.
There is a reason why San Diego has unceremoniously told Hoffman not to let the door smack him on the way out. If he can find a way to submarine his pitches, he becomes the best slow pitch softball pitcher in the country.
