Trevor Hoffman turned down a three year, $21 million offer from Cleveland to stay in San Diego. The reported deal offers him a guarantee of $13 million for two years plus in incentive laden possible extention that could bring the deal to $20 million. Hoffman is about 42 saves from becoming the all time leader in that category and he saved 43 out of 46 opportunities this past season- one of his best ever. His age is sometimes questioned, but Hoffman keeps himself in better shape than many other players and there is no reason he can't continue to be successful. The Padres also traded second baseman Mark Loretta to the Red Sox for backup catcher Doug Mirabelli and also traded Sean Burrows to the Devil Rays for pitcher Dewon Brazelton. Earlier the Padres resigned Brian Giles and traded for Vinni Castillo hoping to boost the National League West champion team for next season. Fans would probably have revolted if Hoffman had been allowed to leave like favorite Tony Gwynn did at the end of his career.
