Hoffman: All-Star invite "a big surprise"

Make it an All-Star trio for the Brewers. Trevor Hoffman was added to the National League roster on Sunday in place of injured Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton.

“It was a big surprise,” Hoffman said. “It’s nice to come in and have that kind of news get dropped on you. It’s a big honor to be able to represent not only the Brewers, but the Brewer bullpen and what they’ve accomplished in the first half. It’s indicative of putting a guy like myself in position to go.”

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin received a call early Sunday morning from Major League Baseball senior vice president Katy Feeney, asking if Hoffman would consider an invitation. Melvin passed the word to Hoffman via Brewers manager Ken Macha. 

For Hoffman, it was a no-brainer.

“I definitely welcome the opportunity,” Hoffman said. “My kids are really excited, too. They’ve gotten older and they’ve been to quite a few, but they’re starting to understand the dynamics that are a part of it and are really excited for Prince and the Home Run Derby.

“I’m excited for them to have the opportunity to go. They’re at that good age. I think any 11 or 12 year old would love to go to an All-Star Game in that capacity. It was a pretty easy sell.”

Trevor and Tracy Hoffman’s three sons are 10, 11 and 12.

With Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder and Hoffman, the Brewers will send at least three players to the All-Star Game for the fourth straight season.

Η τσατίλα ίσως εξηγείται από το γεγονός ότι κάτι δεν πάει καλά με τον κόσμο στον οποίο ζούμε.Morpheus : I know…_exactly_ what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know shmoteing. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life. That there’s shmoteing _wrong_ with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there…like a splinter in you’re mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you _know_ what I’m talking about? Neo : The Matrix? Morpheus : Do you want to know…._what_ _it_ is….? Neo nods Morpheus : The Matrix is everywhere. It’s all around us, even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to work, when you pay your taxes. The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth. Neo : What truth? Morpheus : That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison…for your mind….Unfortunatly, no one can be…_told_ what the Matrix is…you have to see it for yourself. Αμφισβητίας
