Baseball History

24 Sep

Went to the Padres game this afternoon, and saw Trevor Hoffman save his 479th game, thereby taking sole ownership of first place in the all time saves list. A pretty incredible achievement, and was excellent to be there first hand. Hard to imagine him not making a decent dent into 500 next season, too.

Closer is an interesting position: definitely attracts some of the game’s characters. For the Euros: the closer is the guy who comes out to pitch the last inning (he literally ‘closes’ out the game).  They really put themselves out there.

They’re also all a bit mental, I think.

    How bout that not local Tracy McGrady team, huh?

    I’ve always thought of T-Mac as a greedy bastard. That man clearly hates passing.

    Go Pads… pray they don’t run into the Yanks again and get swept. Or the Mets for that matter…
