Alderson on Hoffman: "We have not renewed our offer or an offer and at this point wouldn't expect that we would."

Sandy Alderson Report (MP3)

  • Alderson can't say much about Jeff Moorad buying the Padres.  The deal took Alderson by surprise, but Moorad had told Alderson he wanted to get back to Orange County or Southern California.
  • Alderson couldn't buy the team because it would be a conflict of interest since he was working for Moores.
  • Alderson had conversations with all of the Padres staff before there was a deal.  He let them know that with new ownership 95% of the organization will not be affected, in this case there will be minimal personnel changes.
  • "Maybe we are on the road to greater certainty rather than less."
  • Alderson doesn't think the deal will have any impact at all on the Front Office execs or their operation... at least not for the next 4 weeks or so.  The dynamic could change when the deal gets closer to closing.
  • Alderson's first concern was for the people that work for the organization when he heard about the deal.  Alderson acknowledges that he is certainly in the 5% that might not be covered, but it's not his primary concern.
  • Alderson has read the stories about Hoffman going to the Brewers or the Dodgers.  "It sounds like something is imminent".  "We have not renewed our offer or an offer and at this point wouldn't expect that we would."  From his standpoint he was hoping to have Hoffman back.  He knows that sounds like a contradiction.
