Trevor Hoffman just filed for Free Agency!

 

PADRES: Hoffman files for free agency

On Wednesday, general manager Kevin Towers said he didn't expect a quick resolution to Hoffman's contract status or that of outfielder Brian Giles, who is waiting on the club to decide whether or not to pick up his $9 million option.

What the hell is going on here?  I guess he didn't like that contract that he's been mulling over for the last 2  weeks.  From what the Padres Front Office has been saying in interviews, they haven't even talked to him since the contract was offered.  Yesterday we heard Alderson say Towers was going to contact Hoffman in the next several days.

MLB: October 14th

Hoffman, who turned 41 on Monday, is eligible to file for free agency at the end of the World Series, though the Padres would just as soon that didn't happen.

Towers would just as soon get Hoffman's contract resolved as it figures to be a busy offseason for the Padres.

 SignOnSanDiego: October 16

On the final day of the season, Hoffman said he wants to pitch for the Padres in 2009 and beyond and realizes his negotiating leverage isn't ideal.

"I don't want to go anywhere else," said Hoffman, whose save conversion rate this year was tied for second in the NL. "It would put a big strain on my family, and the grass isn't always greener someplace else."
