DateQuestionAnswer
2013-01-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jay - I've enjoyed watching you on the MLB network this week along with your coulumns, which are always great. What do you think of Trevor Hoffman's chances especially with the way most of the sabermetric community feels about the save statistic. Thanks
(sarsfield from San Diego, California)
To me, Hoffman looks a lot like Lee Smith, who held the all-time saves lead for awhile before being overtaken - a guy with an impressive save total but not above-average value relative to the already-enshrined relievers, even with Bruce Sutter weighing that group down. (Jay Jaffe on the Hall of Fame)
2013-01-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)I think that Troy Percival comes up in a couple of years. Do you think he is a deserving HOFer?
(Steve N from Delaware)
Nope. He's 81st among relievers in JAWS. Mariano Rivera is the only reliever above the standard who's not in, and that includes Trevor Hoffman. (Jay Jaffe on the Hall of Fame)
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, With regards to Edgar Martinez, why do writers continue to back the DH as position but hold it against a player for the HOF? Is it similar to closers where over time voters will come around?
(asstarr1 from Madison, WI)
As I said before, intellectual consistency isn't the forte of the voting body, and there still aren't a ton of voters who are receptive to advanced metrics.

I do think some of the resistance to Edgar comes from the fact that a) his career got a late start due to the Mariners' silliness; and b) he had three Hall of Fame-caliber teammates in Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez and Randy Johnson overshadowing him for much of his time in Seattle.

I think we'll be done with closers in the Hall for a good long time once Mariano Rivera and Trevor Hoffman get in, and I'd honestly be surprised if Edgar is in by that point. I think he'll still be on the ballot when I finally get a vote in 9 years. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jay. I was having a conversation with some friends and we were wondering whether the current iteration of the Red Sox has any Hall of Famers on it. What do you think? Also, if you haven't addressed this already, Posada: yes or no? Thanks for the chat!
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
There's nobody who's a lock, that's for sure. Youkilis doesn't even have 1,000 hits yet, let alone the era's de facto minimum of 2,000. Ortiz has the PED connection and the DH problem. Varitek doesn't even have Posada's credentials. Pedroia and Ellsbury have the potential but they're still mostly potential as far as building cases go - they don't even have good peak scores yet. Late note: I completely forgot about Adrian Gonzalez, who has three straight seasons of at least 6.0 WARP and doesn't turn 30 until May - he's got a stronger JAWS-based case than Pedroia so far. H/T to Cliff Corcoran for pointing out the omission.

Sad to say, the recent Red Sock who might have been building the best case for the Hall of Fame might be the guy who got away, Jonathan Papelbon, in that - much as I loathe him - he's got the talent to wind up better than Trevor Hoffman, if not Mariano Rivera. Still a looooong ways to go on that front, too. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2011-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)How DOES Shawn Marcum work? Its bizarre that someone who doesn't break 90 on a radar gun gets those Ks. Is it sustainable?
(WisconsinRob from Madison)
I sure hope so. Theoretically, at least, a sub-90 mph pitcher can sustainably strike players out with smart sequencing, good pitches, and good accuracy. Trevor Hoffman, Jamie Moyer, Greg Maddux, etc... Whether Marcum continues to do that is tough to say. He's done a remarkable job of keeping it up since last year, though. I wouldn't be surprised if he continues to do so. (Larry Granillo)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I felt old when I compiled this list in April. Tweleve 2010 MLB players were older than me. How many will be back next year? 1 Jamie Moyer -- Phillies --18-Nov-62 2 Tim Wakefield -- Red Sox --2-Aug-66 3 Omar Vizquel -- White Sox --24-Apr-67 4 Trevor Hoffman -- Brewers -- 13-Oct-67 5 Matt Stairs -- Padres -- 27-Feb-68 6 Brad Ausmus -- Dodgers -- 14-Apr-69 7 Arthur Rhodes -- Reds -- 24-Oct-69 8 Ken Griffey Jr. -- Mariners -- 21-Nov-69 9 Mariano Rivera-- Yankees -- 29-Nov-69 10 Takashi Saito -- Braves -- 14-Feb-70 11 Jim Edmonds -- Brewers -- 27-Jun-70 12 Mark Grudzielanek -- Indians -- 30-Jun-70
(ted from the cubicle)
Most of them, I think. Next year is Wakefield's last season though. Matt Stairs wants to come back for one more year, at least. Arthur Rhodes is a reliever, so he'll pitch until he can't. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Hi Eric Who will give me more value the rest of the year - Trevor Hoffman or Clay Hensley? Thanks
( Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Hensley. I would have taken him before the season too. Lot of strikeouts, very good stuff. If he was on a team with a shot he woud probably settle right into the 7th inning role and be a very reliable reliever. (Eric Seidman)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)Joakim Soria is on pace to shatter the saves record by a mile. If he stays healthy, does he become the best closer the game has seen?
(carlosrubi from México)
As great as the Mexicutioner has been, he's got a long way to go from 118. Even if Trevor Hoffman doesn't make it to 600 (he's at 596 and counting), Mariano Rivera's at 548. Picking anybody to deliver 10 straight 43-save save seasons just to catch Mo seems like a bit of a dodgy proposition, because of the number of things (or injuries) that might happen in the intervening time. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-06-23 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Colin Do you see Sam Demel getting any saves for Arizona this year? Also, I was offered Jose Contreras for Trevor Hoffman. Accept? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
Heilman looks set to get the lion's share of the saves in Arizona, and let's be honest - they're not good on offense and they're not good at pitching, so there's probably not a whole lot of save chances to go around. As for Hoffman - is there any reason to hold onto him, except for Macha's bizarre insistence that he'd like to use him as the closer again? And is there any reason to expect a better return than Contreras? But there's so much variance (or "luck," if you prefer) in relief pitching performance over a half season, and that's likely to make a much bigger difference than the gap in talent between them. (Colin Wyers)
2010-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, buddy! I love your blog. My only worry for this years team is the eighth inning. Joba gives me a cold chill every time he comes out and I don't see anyone else that has the stuff both in the head and the arm this year. What do you think about Trevor Hoffman setting up for Mo? The Brewers would be crazy not to try to dump his salary and it's hard to believe he can't turn it around.
(NYmalcontent from Watkins Glen, NY)
On what do you base the expectation that Hoffman will get better? He's 42 and his fastball is slower than British Petroleum reacting to an oil spill. Seven home runs in 20 innings is a scary, scary number and not one I'd be eager to risk in a key situation in the DH league. I hope Hoffman DOES turn it around, but I think the chances are stronger that as the Beatles sang on "Sgt. Pepper's," he's getting very near the end... And I agree with you about Joba. (Steven Goldman)
2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Marc I have been offered Francisco Cordero for either Chase Headley, Chris Young or Kelly Johnson. My closer was Trevor Hoffman and I also have Evan Meek. What do you think of the offer? Thanks
(Ed from Cranford, NJ)
I wouldn't give up Chris Young, but either Headley or Kelly Johnson would be fine. Johnson's slowed down a bit since April, but he has that park to help him, whereas Headley is more of a batting average guy with low power in a park that hurts both of those things. Headley may be your low-cost option here. (Marc Normandin)
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Trevor Hoffman. Dead or just restin'?
(ekanenh from Capitol City)
I probably shouldn't touch this one, since I figured Hoffman was dead going into last year, and I was dead wrong about that. Even so, it doesn't look promising. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hopefully the rain holds off for us today here in Chicago... what do you make of the non-Cardinal teams in the NL Central? Do any of the Cubs, Reds, or Brewers have a realistic shot at the wild card?
(RMR from Chicago)
My projection system generated the following playoff possibilities for those teams: Cubs 24%, Reds 14%, Brewers 13%. Milwaukee's pitching doesn't look very good to me at all and if Trevor Hoffman continues to struggle, they're really in trouble. I like the Reds' upside best of that trio of teams, especially in their starting rotation. (Bradford Doolittle)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many years do you think Mo has left? Is he a fairly unprecedented player?
(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
The conventional wisdom on Rivera has always been that he's a one-pitch pitcher and when that one pitch stopped working, well, that would be that. Maybe there's been a slight decline in velocity on the cutter, but not enough to make the difference. I don't know what the inflection point is for losing effectiveness with that pitch. If he's averaging 91-92 now, is it 89-90? Then the question is, does he want to reinvent himself, and he can he? As for unprecedented, he is. The thing that makes him so much more impressive than any reliever is the consistency he's had over the course of his long career. There are no bogus Jeff Reardon years on his resume. I guess you can look at Trevor Hoffman in a similar light, but he hasn't done it at quite the same level or under as difficult circumstances. (Steven Goldman)
2008-12-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should the Tigers try Edwin Jackson out in the bullpen, perhaps in the closers role?
(Mike from Motown)
Dave Dombrowski said Jackson will be used as a starter. However, I could also see him closing if the Tigers don't land a ninth-inning pitcher via free agency. It appears their sights are now set on Trevor Hoffman. (John Perrotto)
2008-12-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Nicky's Vietnamese sandwiches? You should try Hanco's. What are the chances that the Mets actually have 5-6 HOFers right now: Wright, Reyes, Beltran, Johan... Delgado, Wagner?
(Dan from Brooklyn)
Thanks for the tip. No on Delgado or Wagner; the former doesn't have enough great seasons under his belt (just four 8.0+ WARP seasons), the latter's elbow issues plus the eventual comparisons to Mariano Rivera and Trevor Hoffman will doom his candidacy. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)KG, with the whole Padres divorce situation forcing that team to deal Peavy and forgo Trevor Hoffman (the latter not a big deal IMHO), is their farm system ready to pick up the slack? Seems to me that there's some interesting pitching there, but not much in the way of exciting position guys past Kyle Blanks.
(Steven Goldman from Fortress of Steveitude)
Shouldn't you be asking me about some 1920s Senators infielder who had a hit song so you can get prospect questions later? It's not a good system, and yes, especially weak on hitters. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-06-02 12:00:00 (link to chat)At what point do the Padres remove Trevor Hoffman from the closer role?
(Cidy from Wilmington)
That is a tough, tough question. The guy is an icon and perhaps no player in baseball is more closely associated with his team than Hoffman. It's a delicate situaton but I think once the Padres commit themselves to a full-bore youth movement later this year, they'll have to move on at closer as well. (John Perrotto)
