  1. To continue a thread from the IGD:

    I’m a Hoffman fan, don’t get me wrong, but I can look at Hoffman and Rivera without being biased by one guy pitching for the Padres. Rivera has Hoffman beat in almost every meaningful stat as a reliever. His K/9 is less, but ERA, ERA+, OPS against, AVG against etc etc are better, with more career innings pitched. Hoffman’s best season is doesn’t approach Rivera’s best.

    And sure Hoffman has a small postseason sample size, but Rivera beats him there too. Rivera will go down as the best big game reliever of all time, while Hoffman’s legacy will be as a guy who couldn’t get it done in big games (even though once again it’s a small sample size, but one that doesn’t favor Hoffman).

    I mean if you ask yourself honestly who would you have rather had over the last 15 years, would you really pick Hoffman over Rivera?

  2. #1@Zagz: I can also look at Hoffman and Rivera without bias. This is not an out-there opinion. There are others, most notably Sports Illustrated, who have said Hoffman is the best closer ever and have produced the evidence to back it up.

    Hoffman’s best season doesn’t approach Rivera’s best? See Hoffman, 1998.

    I said Rivera has a decided postseason advantage, so you don’t have to make that case.

    Do you really think that Hoffman’s legacy will be one of a guy who couldn’t get it done in big games? I have never heard that perception. I have heard only that is one of the best relievers ever. I live on the opposite coast of San Diego, so there is no Trevor hype here.

    You said I should honestly aks myself … something. I haven’t been dishonest in my posts.

    Finally, if you want to post about this, then just do on the previous thread. This is the farm report.

    I apologize for posting here. Sorry, minor league fans.

  3. Bass and Guevara need to get a shot in SD…

  4. #3@Masticore317: Guevara is a Rule V guy on rehab. He will get a shot as soon as he’s deemed healthy enough to come off the DL.

  5. #4@Geoff Young: Yeah…I know…I’m just anxious to see him. But you’re right – they’re gonna keep him in AAA long enough for him to be healthy. I’d like to see him stay around a bit.

    And you know I have the Bass fetish…

  6. Tim Stauffer underwent labrum surgery, out for the year, and labrums are bad.

    The link would be to the UT Padre Report (titled “Young out with multiple fractures), but I’ve had too many posts eaten by the filter to paste it here.

  7. This reference may be lost on most, but when Adam Bass gets the call, he should use an edited version of Billy Gunn’s WWE music (“I’m an Ass Man”), with the content changed to “I’m a Bass Man”.

    Now that would be awesome.

  8. 8: wait, that would be your entrance song as the biggest Bass supporter here. ;)

    Bummer about Stauffer but that is not a big lost to the organization.
    I hope he’ll get healthy and get out of baseball before getting hurt more.

  9. #9@Didi: Good point. Hey, Bass has gotta have at least one fan, right?

  10. #6@Tom Waits: Put him on the Drew Brees rehab program…
