Trevor Hoffman blows another save

Trevor Hoffman headshot.jpgBrewers up by one, Trevor Hoffman comes into the game, Ryan Doumit at the plate and . . . wham! it’s gone. This is not a repeat from yesterday. It just happened in the Brewers-Pirates game, and now Trevor Hoffman has given up six home runs on the season and has blown yet another save.

And the thing about a 42 year-old pitcher is that, on some level, it doesn’t matter if it’s a health thing or if it’s simply a matter of him not having it anymore. Because if something is wrong with his arm, it’s not like he has infinite time to recover.

Are we witnessing the end of Trevor Hoffman’s career?

UPDATE: Andrew McCutchen just hit a homer in the top of the 10th to put the Pirates on top. It’s McCutchen’s second dinger of the day.

    So who does the Brew Crew turn to? Hawkins? Not exactly lighting it up this year so far. Villanueva?

    I say they turn to Hawkins. Hes the guy pitching the 8th inning and is still getting strikeouts. Villanueva hasn’t been pitching when “it counts” todays game for example I think he got the 6th inning.

    It’s amazing he’s lasted this long . I have a friend that used to catch for the Padres(late 90’s to 2001) so I went to alot of Padre games . Hoffman could barely get to 90 mph on his fastball way back then . I understand his change up is his bread and butter . My point is he’s had a longer career than many thought he was going to have . Retirement is probably not far off . Tip your cap Trevor , a job well done .
