TREVOR HOFFMAN RUMORS

Trevor Hoffman: Not a First Ballot Hall of Famer?

However, that is exactly what some baseball experts and Hall of Fame voters have been stating since the 2015 Hall of Fame class was announced on January 6th. Over the course of 18 seasons, with 16 of...

THROWBACK THURSDAY: When Animals Hated Trevor Hoffman

I think the last remaining member of the "Trevor Hoffman is just having a slow start" bandwagon fell off yesterday and now we can all finally accept that Trevor Hoffman is done as a closer.

The Trevor Hoffman (Memorial?) National League Reliever of the Year Award

Yesterday news broke that MLB will be re-naming their top closer award’s the Trevor Hoffman National League Reliever of the Year Award and the Mariano Rivera American League Reliever of the Year Award for the two  respective leagues.
