Towers: Padres Will Talk With Hoffman

According to's Corey Brock, Kevin Towers plans to talk with Padres closer Trevor Hoffman about an extension for 2009. In 43 games this season, Hoffman is 3-6 with a 4.24 ERA and 27 SV. While I think Hoffman has been great for the Padres, he will not be very effective next season as a closer. However, the Padres do have money to spend (assuming they decline Brian Giles' option), and do owe it to Hoffman to let him finish his career with the Padres.
