The Hammer of God

On Monday afternoon Mariano Rivera passed Trevor Hoffman with career save number 602. As one would expect, Mo is now the major league career leader in saves. Not bad for a guy who throws only one pitch. In true Mariano fashion he struck out the side to record the save. Unfortunately, this was a makeup game against the Minnesota Twins so he achieved this feat in front of a modest crowd. As mild mannered as Rivera is, I doubt he minded in the least. It does seem fitting that Joe Girardi, the current New York Yankees manager, was the catcher the night Rivera recorded his first career save back in May of 1996.
