Fantasy Notes: Don’t Fret Over Hoffman

July 13, 2006 | By RotoRob | comment on this post
San Diego Padres closer Trevor Hoffman struggled in the All-Star Game.
So what if Trevor Hoffman looked like a pinata at the All-Star Game?

Are you a Trevor Hoffman owner worried about his All-Star game meltdown? Well, don’t sweat it. Contrary to Fox’s omnipresent blathering that “this one counts,” the fact is that the blown save and loss don’t count for squat. Hoffman is enjoying perhaps the finest season of his long and distinguished career and will probably add the all-time saves record to his wonderful 2006 showing. Currently ranked second in the league in saves, Hoffman is headed for his highest total since 1998 and his already fine control is even sharper this season.

Hell, he’s even healthier than he’s been in some time, as evidenced by the fact he’s headed for his most work since 2000. Enjoy the ride, and expect — if possible — even greater success in the second half. Over the past three years, Hoffman’s ERA is three-quarters of a run lower after the break. Now, that counts.

    I needed more saves so I traded for Hoffman right after Billingsly first NL start. At the time, I thought I was giving up alot, but the deal has helped. I gave up Billingsly, Nolasco, and Eric Milton for Maddux and Hoffman.

    That’s not a bad deal, especially if you’re playing in a non-keeper league. Chad Billingsley looks like he’ll be a serious horse, and Nolanco might have some potential, but Milton as a Red has just been a seriously bad mix.
