Good-Bye, Trevor!!

Alright, here I go again. Support group, stand by.

As most of you probably know, Trevor Hoffman was introduced to his new team at the Brewers’ fanfest on Saturday. There are some excellent pictures on Happy’s blog, and I would encourage you to check them out.

I think it’s time for me to let go. Trevor’s a Brewer, that’s not going to change. He’s not going to be in a Padres’ uniform this season. He might not even be in a Padres uniform next season. It’s just going to be so weird to see Heath trot out of that bullpen for the first time in the ninth. What song will they play? They’d better not flash “HEATH TIME” on the scoreboard and blare “Hell’s Bells”. Trevor’s still going to play “Hells Bells”, enter to Trevor Time. It just doesn’t fit. The 9th is going to be very different for Padres fans and Brewers fans alike. Trevor is all we’ve even known in the 9th inning. How will we adjust to Heath? How will the Brewers fans adjust to Trevor? Just watch, Trevor’s going to have 35-40 saves, maybe with an All-Star appearance. He might even win a World Series. Happy’s pictures are definitely going to help, but Trevor’s going to be in the Brewers’ uniform in all of them. It’s just going to be so weird. But it is what it is. Trevor’s a Brewer, and nothing’s going to change that.

Elrond: He is not coming back.

Arwen: There is still hope!!!

Arwen is right. Remember from the Lord of the Rings? Arwen wanted to stay in Middle Earth and wait for her sweetheart to come back from defeating the bad guys.

elrond.jpgRemember, Arwen is immortal. Aragorn is not. But anyways, the point is, Daddy wanted her to give up. But Arwen wanted to believe that Aragorn would come back. Turns out, she decides to stay, almost dies, and she marries Aragorn and lives happily ever after until he dies.

What does this have to do with Trevor Hoffman, you say? There is still hope that Trevor will come back to San Diego to pitch for the Padres. Slim? Oh yeah. But it’s hope. He declined the second-year option with the Brewers. He wanted to come back to San Diego this year. But things just fell apart. He hasn’t come out and said why he didn’t want the option. Maybe it’s because he’s holding onto the hope of coming back to San Diego. Maybe he’s planning on retiring after the 2009 season. I really don’t know why. But I hope so much that a deal can be reached next year. Hopefully, with a new owner, we will be able to get something done with Trevor. That’s hope, peoples. And until he says otherwise, I will assume that Trevor wants to come back next year. Now, I think I am over Trevor. Can’t guarantee it, but I think I’m good. Thanks support group!!

What is this support group thing? I agree the better not flash Heath Time that was Trevor’s thing.
