Fingers touts Hoffman's Hall credentials

Rollie Fingers has a point. "I do believe that Trevor Hoffman is a Hall of Famer,'' he said. Fingers should know. He's among five relievers to make it to Cooperstown.

Padres' Hoffman is still making an impact on pro's, youth

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. Every morning he buttons up his No. 51 jersey and spends several hours as a spring training instructor for the San Diego Padres, working with veterans and minor leaguers alike. He'll head back to San Diego for...

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.

Trevor Hoffman: Not a First Ballot Hall of Famer?

To San Diego Padres fans the very idea of Trevor Hoffman not being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, his first year of eligibility, would be nothing short of sheer blasphemy. 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. He doesn't have it. He throws right down the middle and he doesn't fool anyone. Is there a person in the world that was honestly surprised that Glaus hit that homerun? I didn't think so. Yesterday...

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. Some of their tickets to the Hall of Fame will be regular-priced admission rather than an induction ceremony. One guy who...
