On Thursday, Trevor Hoffman agreed to a 1 year deal worth 6 million dollars with the Milwaukee Brewers. The 41 year old all time saves leader (554) spent 16 years with the now league rival San Diego Padres.
In 2008, Hoffman recorded 30 saves in 34 opportunities. His 3.77 ERA was his worst since 1995, so there is reason to believe his best days are behind him. The brewers new closer will most likely be set up by righty Carlos Villanueva.
