Although it was widely expected, today's news that the San Diego Padres did not offer arbitration to Trevor Hoffman shut the door to an era of San Diego baseball with a resounding clang.
It said loud and clear that we would never hear Hell's Bells to signal Trevor's entrance into a game.
It clearly showed the direction of the team and shown a bright light on the insincerity of any attempts by the Front Office to even say they tried to sign the future Hall of Fame player and Padres Icon.
You were loved by many and will be missed by all.
