Ken Macha gave Trevor Hoffman $250K yesterday

Sep 27, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

More or less. As Adam McCalvy tweeted, by finishing his 35th game, the buyout on Hoffman’s option year goes up to $750,000 from $500,000.

This isn’t odd or controversial, really. Hoffman has been used to finish games in non-save situations a lot in August and September, and if you’re not going to use him in that role there’s really no point in having him. I do enjoy following the late-season contract incentive push, though. I have ever since Jimy Williams gave Steve Avery some starts he probably shouldn’t have received in order to get his 1998 option picked up.

If anyone spots any more of these, please let me know. We can maybe try to play detective and see if any managers are trying to either mess with players or with the front office by either playing a guy a lot or holding him out to mess with bonuses.

    Gee, Trevor, how about throwing a nice new Prius Macha’s way, you know, just in thanks.

    Its Latin for ‘Paper-bag full of cash and a dozen hookers’
