Trevor Hoffman Doesn't Get a Gold Watch from the Padres

It would be interesting to hear from any sports agent readers of this blog on their reaction to how the San Diego Padres informed Trevor Hoffman--who's pitched for the Padres for the last 15 years--that his contract offer to pitch next season had been rescinded:
The Padres informed Hoffman not in person with a one-on-one conversation, or a hand-written note, or even with a phone call

Instead, they sent his reps a fax.

Gotta think the Padres could have handled this one better.


According to the Padres (see Paul DePodesta's blog at, Hoffman and his people did not respond to the Padres offer for an entire month, after which time they pulled it off the table. They also agreed to Hoffman's request for a meeting, to which they also received no response in return. Hoffman and his representatives continued to stonewall the Padres and then came back to complain about how THEY were treated via this fax. What more did you expect the Padres to do Mike?

He held out for 6 weeks with $4 Million on the table. He is a self centered JERK. While 10 percent of the US working population are losing their jobs, he thinks he is better than eveyone else. Plus, the idiot didn't even graduate from college.
