1. Who can/should close for the Padres if Trevor were to get hurt today?
2. If Trevor's performance makes it clear that he's "done", who can/should close for the Padres at that time?
3. Who can/should close for the Padres in 2009 and beyond?
These questions come from the hot debate on Trevor's status ... I happen to think he's now "done" ... and what I mean by that is that I no longer expect him to be successful in >80% of his appearances.
I've created a group-think way to see what the current general consensus on this is ... Here’s a way to chime in on the question of “Is Trevor Done?” …
The question for the group is this: What will be the ratio of the number of Saves + Wins that Trevor Hoffman, pitcher for the San Diego Padres, gets credited with versus the number of Blown Saves + Losses that Trevor Hoffman gets credited with, during the month of May, 2008?
You have until the end of April to weigh in … so far, 19 folks have predicted … and the distribution of preditions so far is pretty mixed.
We’ll see if this helps us learn anything … as we all struggle with the 3 complex questions at the top of this post ...
