    Time for Trevor Hoffman to Hang em Up?

    Hoffman blew another save last night, this time it was Maddux's chance at his 250th win. He has never been a hard thrower but is barely bringing it 80 mph anymore. His advantage has always been the straight change but it can hardly be effective when a hitter can all but eliminate fastball from the equation... This year he is 0-2 with an 8.22 era and hitters are batting .361 against him. Hoffman has been a one of my favorite players to watch over the years, but he it's time to go....

    Actually, it would have been his 350th win. I agree, I think Hoffman should call it quits. He's had a great career, but I think it's time to say good-bye.

    Gagne needs to hang it up with him, he just ain't the same without the juice.

    Wow, it is sad to see him drop like that, and it ticks me off that he blew Maddux's win.

    He used to throw in the low to mid 90s.

    I would be willing to bet he hasn't seen 93 since '93...

    I know he hasn't. I don't believe he has since he tore his rotator cuff in '95, I believe it was.
