Trevor Hoffman declines offer to retire as a Padre

After retiring batters for the better part of two decades Trevor Hoffman has decided to retire himself.

All-time saves leader Hoffman retires

"It's time to retire. It's time to move on," Hoffman said via phone from San Diego, where he and his family still make their home. "This is more of a self-evaluation. I expect to pitch at a certain level and I had to be honest with myself that I wasn't certain I could maintain that anymore."

A lot of fans were hoping that Hoffman would sign a one day contract and retire as a Padre.  I like that Hoffman has too much respect for the game to pull a stunt like that.  Either that or he is still pissed at the Padres for pulling his contract offer, even though he says he isn't.

The Padres did ask Hoffman if he wanted to get back in uniform for one day and retire, but he declined the request.

"No I won't do that," Hoffman said.

That's always been my response when I'm asked if I would do anything for love.
