Closer Trevor Hoffman of the San Diego Padres has decided to take more time for rehabilitation instead of having surgery. Hoffman conferred with sports surgeon Lewis Yocum on Friday and had his physical with team doctor Jan Fronek on Saturday in Peoria, Ariz. Hoffman said increased strength in his right shoulder recently convinced him to give his recovery more time rather than having surgery. "Based off the progress I've had lately, I'm pretty optimistic," he said.

With their matching paisley mini dresses, matching teal streaks in their hair and matching snakeskin booties, fashion designers Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor are a head-turning vision as they breeze into Soho House, two peas in a haute-hippie pod.
