Trevor Hoffman is going to take a couple of days off

Trevor Hoffman headshot.jpgYesterday we heard that Trevor Hoffman and the Brewer brass had a little meeting before the game.  We now know, thanks to Tom Haudricourt of the Journal-Sentinel,  that the result of that meeting is Hoffman getting some time off to clear his head and fix his mechanics:

Hoffman would spend a couple of days working with pitching coach Rick
Peterson on his mechanics. During that period, Macha said, Hoffman
would not pitch in games at all, much less the ninth inning.

“We’ll see how
things go,” said Macha, who met for several minutes in his office with
Peterson and Hoffman to discuss the situation. “We’ll re-evaluate on
Friday.”

Of course, if the Brewers keep losing it will be Willie Randolph (my personal favorite!) and not Ken Macha making those evaluations.

    That’s a good idea, if I see Willie in Market Basket, I’ll tell him Milwaukee is great this time of year.

    @YankeesfanLen: Willie is the bench coach in Milwaukee right now.

    Uh, newsflash, sportsfans: Trevor Hoffman is done.
