Bud Black is optimistic that Hoffman will return to the Padres

I'm pessimistic that the Padres Front Office is ever even going to call Hoffman. Can Bud Black's intuition be trusted?

Black: Hoffman could return to SD

"Maybe I'm too much of an optimist. I think he can come back. I don't think that bridge has been knocked down," Black said

Meanwhile it's been over a month and the Padres have yet to talk to Hoffman at all.  Alderson said last week that he will contact Hoffman directly, presumably using a telephone device.  I'm not sure what he's waiting for.  Bite the bullet already!  These people are driving me crazy. 

Who's in charge here?  The ones who can't make a telephone call?  I can't wait until the next Sandy Alderson Report on Mighty XX when they ask him for the tenth time if he's called Hoffman yet.

"I hate to tie the two together," he [KT] added, "but from a financial standpoint, it could impact it a little bit. I say that carefully because I know how Trevor feels about Jake and how Jake feels about Trevor."
