Trevor Hoffman misses Hall of Fame election by 5 votes

SAN DIEGO (AP) Well, Hells Bells, Trevor Hoffman didn't make baseball's Hall of Fame for the second straight season. This time, it was agonizingly close.

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- It's good being Trevor Hoffman these days. The former closer got an encouraging 67.3 percent of the vote in his first year on the Hall of Fame ballot.

Trevor Hoffman and the Closer’s Place in the Hall of Fame

It was surprising when Jim Edmonds got knocked off the ballot in his first year of Hall of Fame eligibility when results were announced a couple days ago.

Can Jonathan Papelbon catch Mariano Rivera?

When discussing the best closers of the modern era one name leads every list: Mariano Rivera. Trevor Hoffman, Joe Nathan, Francisco Rodriguez, and Billy Wagner are part of the next tier down but are short on the dominance over many years of the guy above them.

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.
