It's a Multimediatastic Sunday!
Sunday, June 17, 2007
If you're not a fan of reading or just too hung over from celebrating the Yanks win yesterday to coordinate your optical muscles for longer than 30 seconds, today is your day! Reading the barely coherent mess I somehow pass off as "writing" doesn't take much brain power, but watching and listening to me takes even less effort.

If video is what you prefer, take a gander at my latest installment of Yankeeschickography, in which I discuss Mariano's and Trevor's closing chops.



Should you truly be too lazy to even utilize your retinas for the 3 minutes it takes to watch my videos (perhaps you wasted all your energy reading this post), fear not: I shall be on the radio this evening as usual. Tonight's segment will be extra special though, as I will be partaking in a little good-natured trivia contest with my Mets blogging counterpart Tracy, who writes over at domewright.com. Host Mike Silva will be asking each of us questions about our fave teams to see which one of us gals knows her team better. Tune in at about 10:32 tonight to listen and root for the Yankees Chick! If you miss it, I'll have the archive up in my super-sweet radio section sometime tomorrow.

    I'd have to say taking their careers as a whole, Mariano is probably the best closer of all-time. Nobody wants to face him in the postseason. And that's what makes him stand out above Hoffman.

    Kick her butt Mo!

    First of all, I'm not worried about Mo. His ERA in May was 1.74 and in June, even with last nights hiccup, it is 2.25. As for being the best closer of all time, I think if he pitchs two more quality seasons there won't be as much of a discussion between him and Hoffman. If Mo can get to 500 saves and have the postseason numbers he does, the argument should be over.

    Mariano is without a doubt the best closer ever. Trevor Hoffman couldn't even manage to save the All-Star game last season while Rivera has proven himself time and time again in post season games that actually matter.

    To follow up on what Tim said, not only did Hoffman blow the All-Star game, he also blew the biggest save opportunity of his career in Game 3 of the 1998 World Series when he gave up a bomb to Scott Brosius. I've never seen the guy convert a big save in my life. Given Rivera's postseason success, I don't know how anyone can even make a comparison.

    Hey Ian, nice Amalie Benjamin page. She's quite the looker with those glasses.

    Yes Hoffman has blown some games on the national stage and so has Rivera, on the biggest national stage of all, game 7 of the world series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    artvandalay- don't ever try to compare Hoffman with Mariano...ever.

    mantlemurcer,

    Thanks for the advice but I think I can compare Mariano to whomever I want to compare him to. Oh, and by the way, you're the jerk store's all-time best seller.

    mr vandalay, i'd just like to remind you that, as both a latex manufacturer AND the renowned author of Venetian Blinds, you better keep things classy around here.

    That said, Mr Pennypacker says hello.
