Mariano Rivera Knocking on the Door

Mariano's signature: the Sweet Spot

Mariano Rivera notched career save 595 last night in super-dramatic fashion at Fenway Park. Seven more and he surpasses Trevor Hoffman, the all-time leader in saves. I (Evander, and Martin has publicly joined in this sentiment) can truly say I have watched, since the 1995 Game 2 thriller versus the Seattle Mariners, the greatest player there ever was or ever will be at his position and in his role.
