Is Trevor "Done"?

There are many ways to look at "who is the Padres closer of the future"?  For a while now, the roto community has called this "CIW" = Closer in Waiting ... but that has a more short-term focus ... ie. who's the guy who will close "now" if the currently closer gets hurt.  Well, I'm interested in 3 questions ...

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?” …

http://www.predictify.com/auctionview.aspx?ID=3873

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 ...

Thank-you, Gaslamp Ball, for a forum for this discussion ...
