Fired By Fax

Several sources are reporting that the San Diego Padres have rescinded a contract offer to Trevor Hoffman, a free agent, who has piled up all but two of his 554 saves with the Padres since 1993. padresnewlogo

The Padres say they’re slashing expenditures, most notably by trying to trade ace Jake Peavy, probably to the Braves or Cubs, and further by pushing away Hoffman, the indisputable face of the franchise.

And, listen to this: The Padres informed Hoffman not in person with a one-on-one conversation, or a hand-written note, or even with a phone call.  Instead, they sent his reps a fax.

Talk about some pieces of sh*t.  Excuse my french, but is this anyway to run a business.  Especially the man who has a pretty significant hand in getting your franchise to wear it is today.  Those motherf*ckers.

Phils Win Despite Quiet Bats

Cole Hamels once again received very little run support but managed to get the victory.  Cole pitched eight sharp innings to snap a seven-start winless drought in front of his parents (who happened to attend the game in San Diego).

Hamels ( 10 -8 ) limited the Padres to one run on seven hits as he won for the first time since a 4-1 victory at Atlanta on July 3 and helped the Phillies stay two games back of the Mets in the NL East.

The Phillies who had one less hit then the Padres, still managed to win. Pat the Bat hit his 29th homer of the season, a solo shot with one out in the sixth that proved to be the difference. Burrell also homered on Friday night in the Phillies’ 1-0 win over San Diego.
