This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

I've watched Hoffman pitch hundreds of times, either live by voidoid
or televised. He was an outstanding closer. In his prime, his change-up was untouchable, and even past his prime, it was barely touchable. When the first bell tolled from Hell's Bells and bullpen door swung open, it was game over. His career totals are deserving of Cooperstown.
I think Hoffman was inducted into the Hall fairly - that is to say, I am glad he was evaluated on his own merits rather than directly compared to Rivera, or made to wait for Rivera.
That said, he is still miles behind Rivera in terms of dominance. There simply isn't anyone in Mariano's league.
