Here’s today’s wild thought from me.
Yes, he’s old. And, yes, there’s got to be concerns on his health. But, would it be crazy to offer Trevor Hoffman a $4 million contract loaded with incentives to set-up for Mo Rivera in 2009? It could buy some time for the kids like David Robertson and Mark Melancon. Then again, it could work out just as well as when the Yankees brought in Jimmy Wynn, Jose Cruz, Jesse Orosco, John Mayberry, George Scott, Rob Murphy, Buddy Groom, etc.
