Hosmer looks to push reset button after subpar first season with Padres - The San Diego Union-Tribune

It’s weird how nobody saw this coming.

Right through the final day of the season, he was resolute.

“I know I’m going to go back and be the player I know I can be,” Hosmer said before the final game of one of his worst major league seasons. “This isn’t the impression I wanted to make the first year, but there’s nothing I can say to make it any better. Just, I’ll be ready to go next year.”

It’s what he has been thinking about for a while — getting back to South Florida and clearing his mind, pressing reset, getting to work.

But in one brief moment Sunday, before catching himself, he allowed just a hint that last offseason not being normal might have had a little to do with his not achieving at his usual level this season.

“I don’t have to be a lawyer this year or an agent,” Hosmer said. “I can be a baseball player. Not to make any excuse on anything, but I’m excited to go home and really do nothing for about a week and get right back to work. Just have a clear mind this offseason, knowing where I’m going to be next year, knowing where I’m going to be for a while.”
