The German Confederation was the association of Central European states created by the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to serve as the successor to the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation , which had been abolished in 1806. The dispute between the two dominant member states of the confederation, Austria and Prussia , over which of the two had the inherent right to rule German lands ended in favor of Prussia after the Austro-Prussian War in 1866, and the collapse of the confederation. This resulted in the creation of the North German Confederation , with a number of south German states remaining independent, although allied first with Austria (until 1867) and subsequently with Prussia (until 1871), after which they became a part of the new nation of Germany .

Ben Carsley’s Fantasy Take: Ah yes, the reverse Rodgers. If Hoffman was in (Chris Traeger voice) literally any other organization, he’d probably be a top-50 name. In Colorado he’s still good enough to be a top-100 guy, but that maybe undersells the loss of impact potential here. In 14-to-16-team leagues, Hoffman can be started in good matchups on the road next season and maybe against, like, the Padres at home. But you need deeper leagues for Hoffman to have real value, and even then you’ll need to be judicious about when you use him. He’ll miss bats, though.
