The great Yankee closer, Mariano Rivera now sits at the precipice of history. He is now
two saves away from being unequivocally the best closer in the game. Rivera has the uncanny ability to avoid injury and is quite consistent.
Opposing batters rarely square up any of his offerings and this provides numerous opportunities to shut down offenses and secure saves in bunches. The Bx Bombers are indeed fortunate to have a fabulous bullpen. No ballclub can be successful in the post season without a reliable closer.
In all honesty, Trevor Hoffman's accomplishments do not even hold a candle to Rivera's. Hoffman folded like a cheap suit in his only post season appearance against the Yankees. Hoffman does not have very many pressure save opportunities.
