Rivera calls Hoffman the “leader” of closers

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Oct 19, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

FOX has passed along a few deleted scenes from tomorrow’s documentary BEING: Mariano. Of course it’s all in an attempt to promote a television special, but it’s also pretty interesting stuff. And pretty entertaining. This one focuses on this year’s trip to San Diego, where Rivera was honored during a pregame ceremony with former Padres closer Trevor Hoffman.

It’s interesting to hear Rivera call Hoffman the “leader” of the closers, the first to reach 600 saves and set that bar. Rivera is obviously considered the greatest of all time, but it’s clear that he has significant respect for Hoffman (and that Hoffman has great respect for Rivera).

At the end of the video, the payoff is Robinson Cano’s evaluation of what gift Rivera should receive next. It never happened, but it would have been great.

As a reminder, the FOX documentary airs tomorrow at either 2:30 or 4:30 p.m. Check your local listings.

    Trevor did set the bar & Mo jumped over it

    How on God’s green Earth can Cano witness the legend of Rivera and watch the respects paid around MLB and NYC and not crave a similar send-off into the sunset as a Yankee?

    Cano will re-sign.

    Well Rivera got that 1) because he’s got 5 rings and was a huge part of nearly 20 years of excellence…..plus he’s widely known as the best ever as his position and universally beloved in the game.

    Cano may not have the same supporting cast to build that type of legend……if I’m him looking at this Yankee roster right now I’m thinking man can this team win anytime soon and do I want to be the fall guy if we don’t?

    2013 Close but no cigar. Could they be in on Robbie?

    Blake/Tar – UVA being pummeled by Duke. Duke!!! On the bright side, they are under the 189 this year so the clock has been re-set on the LT. Next year, they can really really open their pocketbooks for enticements to recruits! :D

  11. RhapsodyInBlue October 19th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Mr. Mills it would have to be one helluva version of Runaway to match Del Shannon.

    His version brings back so many great memories.

  12. RhapsodyInBlue October 19th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Right about now Chucky is sitting alone in the darkest corner of the club house applying the secret concoction to his locks. Probably linseed oil.

    His head will be sopping wet by the time they play the national anthem.

  13. RhapsodyInBlue October 19th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Actually Charles Weedon Westover, Del Shannon was his stage name.

    The big Yankee story this weekend is that ESPN piece about the Yanks about to embark on a $300MM spending spree this off season. If you’ve had some time to read the story it really makes no sense. The math just doesn’t add up. The story claims that the Yanks want to bring back Cano and sign Tanaka, McCann and Beltran, plus Granderson and Kuroda for one year. All for a total of $300MM and still stay under 189 for next year’s payroll. First of all, Cano and Tanka alone will most likely take you over $300MM with the posting fee. Throw in McCann and Beltran and you are over $400MM. And with respect to payroll, with out getting heavy with the math (check out RAB today if you want more details there), none this comes close to working unless you get full Arod salary relief next year (which is highly unlikely) and even then probably still won’t work.

    Hard to understand why a “Yankee source” would sponsor such outright falsities. My thinking is this a PR response to the Boras statements a few days ago. Such crap won’t fool any player agents out there but it could perhaps influence the ticket base into believing a 2009 reversal is right around the corner.

    BTW, as I mentioned the other day, Tyler Austin is likely injured. He left an AFL game after a HBP a few days ago and hasn’t played since.

  15. J. Alfred Prufrock October 19th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    Should have kept the iffy Venezuelan catcher to keep Cano’s bat company in the lineup in his dotage…

    If Cano gets 200 mil, it better be us who gives it him.

    Nice article by Madden at the News about all the players the Yanks have missed in the draft who were taken by Red Sox and Cards. I think the Yanks need to hire Clint Eastwood and that daughter of his to head up scouting.

  25. JimK October 19th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    bigdan22, great link; thanks

  26. Pat M. October 19th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Why is the Madden piece catching people by surprise ??? Yanks have been cutting corners for years dating back to when George was still sticking his fingers in the pie. Scouting was always the first thing to get whacked when it came to money ( remember the Championship rings fiasco ? ). I remember GR was always calling for an additional coach / instructor at each level of ball and why not ??? It’s like driving a Cadillac and then getting it serviced at a Goodyear center.

  27. yankeefeminista October 19th, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    All the effort in the world won’t make you taller, Pedey. :twisted:

  28. mick October 19th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Buccolz goes to his hair after every pitch.
    How is that allowed?
    Salty is also greasy.

  29. Shame Spencer October 19th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    Pat M. – Very true. I think we were all expecting a turn around when Cash made some statements about focusing on the farm in 2005-06. I was one of his biggest supporters, willing to give him time. Let some of his work have a chance to bear fruit. But it’s incredible how many opportunities our scouting department missed. ‘Incredible’ might not actually be the right word… it’s unacceptable. The org needs some shaking up.

    Nope…..I said similarly yesterday that that article greater overstates the actual amount of money they’ll have to spend if they want to get under the cap.

    The only way they can go on a spending spree is if Alex gets suspended for the full season and then they get all of his salary gone and also they won’t have to worry about his 6 million homer bonus ……

    Either way the actual payroll they’ll have to start out with to get under the cap is closer to 170 than it is to 189

  31. jmills October 19th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

  33. Shame Spencer October 19th, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    The ESPN article was confusing because Alex, no matter what happens to him in 2014, will be back on the books for 2015. That’s why I think they try like hell to get under this year.. because next year they will have to very likely add that $27.5 million back on their books without adding a player of value (insert Youk/Wells jokes here).

  34. JimK October 19th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Pat M, I do not pay as much attention to the minor leagues and the drafts as others here, therefore I appreciate a link that draws some attention to the Y’s failures in draft selections.

    Agreed….if he gets suspended it’s their best chance to do it

  36. Duh Innings II October 19th, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    The Yanks should just reacquire Ramiro Pena for SS and Melky Cabrera for RF, re-sign Cano for Sabathia’s contract I think he’d take, stick Jagielo at 3B and the ninth slot, start Almonte in LF, make Soriano the DH, trade Teixiera, move Jeter to 1B, and go all-homegrown with the starting nine like this:

    Position – Player – Age – 2014 Salary – Contract Status

    C – Romine – 25 on 11/22 – $500K – under control through 2018

    1B – Jeter – 39 (40 next 6/24) – $9.5M – in his walk year

    2B – Cano – 31 on 11/22 for $23M – re-signed through 2020

    3B – Jaigelo – 21 (22 next 5/17) – $500K – under control through 2019

    SS – Pena – 28 – figure $750K – under control through 2016

    LF – Almonte – 24 (25 next 6/10) – $500K – under control through 2018

    CF – Gardner – 30 – figure $5M – in his walk year

    RF – Cabrera – 29 – $8M – in his walk year

    DH – Soriano – 38 next 1/7 – $5M – in his walk year

    Total cost of the 2014 Yankees all-homegrown starting nine:

    $52.75M ($23M of that to Cano + $27.5M of that could be off the books after 2014 if Jeter, Gardner, Cabrera, Soriano are let go + $2.25M for the other four everyday players.)

    2/9ths over 30 years old, 5/9ths under 30 and under control beyond 2014, 7/9ths 30 or younger, Jeter is the only defensive liability.

    Romine > Stewart
    Jeter > Overbay offensively
    Pena > 2013 Yankees SS
    Almonte > Wells
    Cabrera > Suzuki
    Soriano > Hafner

    Jagielo is the wildcard ( 2013 Yankees 3B)

    Spare me “Where’s the power?” when the 2013 St.Louis Cardinals just made it into their second World Series in three years with only 125 homeruns.

    Here’s a novel idea:

    Go with a cheap all-homegrown starting nine and spend on stud relievers so the starting nine doesn’t have to hit as many homeruns as there are games in a season or score five or more runs a game.

    How ’bout Grant Balfour for two years with a team option for a third year like Rafael Soriano got from Washington, Fernando Rodney and Latroy Hawkins (who had a nice year with the Mets) for one-year incentive laden deals, J.P. Howell and a re-signed Logan to go with Robertson and Kelley?

    If that was the bullpen and the rotation was Sabathia/Kuroda/Colon/Tanaka/Nova (if the Yanks must have Tanaka), that’s a 90-95 win team. It also punches a BIG hole in Oakland (no Balfour and Colon for them.)

  37. Duh Innings II October 19th, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    *1/3 over 30, 2/3rds under 31, 7/9ths under 32

    Shame – did you notice that Victorino had thoughts of throwing to first on Igelsias’ liner to right? I think he was “surprised” when he couldn’t get it out of his glove cleanly :)

  39. Shame Spencer October 19th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    chicken – They showed Victorino in slow motion before, celebrating after Salty’s walk off. Crazy Eyes looked even more crazy in slow-mo. It was haunting.

    It leaves me rather riled when some Jay wannabee fan comes on the local radio thinking he snows, Dave Stieb and that Dave is not good enough to be in the hall. Stieb, you great pitcher, you!

  41. Shame Spencer October 19th, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    blake – I didn’t understand targeting 2015 when no substantial money is coming off the books. Jeter’s might.. but Alex’s money could very well return. It’s more likely it will at this point.

  42. jmills October 19th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    I think it’s all about resetting the tax %…..if they can do that in 2014 then it won’t matter as much if they are over in 2015.

    It’s all kinda dumb because they’d create more revenue by making the playoffs and going deep there than they’ll save by getting under the tax

    I’m still trying to figure out how you trade Tom Seaver for Pat Zachry etc.. What was going on there?

  48. Shame Spencer October 19th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    blake – I think ultimately the focus for all of us has to be that they had implemented a goal without a plan and no matter if over or under in 2014, it did not work. That’s just concerning all around as a fan of an organization.

  49. pkyankfan69 October 19th, 2013 at 9:31 pm

  55. jmills October 19th, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    All the Mets had to do was honour Seaver. But no, ownership had to dump him, when they should have matched ( because Tom deserved it ) what Ryan was making. Kudos to you, Tom, u got your no no in, red.

    Uh, they traded their best ones away? And turned their young starters into relievers, or eunuched them to the point where they became self-fulfilling prophecy relievers?

  80. Duh Innings II October 19th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Leyland’s managing in this series has been awful as how do you not have Jackson steal second or at least employ the hit and run with Iglesias up at the plate? If Leyland employs the hit and run Jackson is on secondbase with two outs if Iglesias grounds out or at thirdbase with one out if Iglesias gets a hit.

    This might be it for the Tigers as a perennial World Series contender because are they gonna give Scherzer the Sabathia-like contract he will command when they have Fielder, Verlander, Cabrera, and Sanchez signed to big contracts? Fielder and Cabrera look old, slow, and like they’re gonna be two very expensive DHs in two years. ‘Cool Cabrera would be that as he is a hit machine but Fielder has albatross contract written all over him.

    Clarke I am no fan of, under any circumstances. Kharlomov was angelic. And a monstrous talent whose life was cut short way too soon.

    Clarke had the sense though to realize the talent of Reijo Ruotsalainen, perhaps the most under rated player in the history of the NHL.

    They might have had a plan but it was based too much on everything going right with prospects.
    //

    Uh, they traded their best ones away? And turned their young starters into relievers, or eunuched them to the point where they became self-fulfilling prophecy relievers?

    ————

    True but their overall plan was to have some of the kids make it and decrease the need to buy free agents. I think they over estimated how much progress the guys were making. They did it with all their kids not taking in account that step backs will happen.

    If you told Cashman in 2013 they would still be searching for pitching he would be surprised based what he thought Generation Trey and Bs would do.

    What is Fielder doing?

    Ya see. This is what happens when you don’t run hard out of the box “V-Mart cuz if you were on second not third there’s no double-play and it’s still men on second and third with one out.

    Hey J.Alfred and yankeefeminista ya might wanna drop the black, orange, and grey pom-poms and see the Tigers effed up big time this inning with their lack of hustle (V-Mart) and idiotic baserunning (Fielder.)

    Fielder was 10 ft away from the bag, all he had to do was run or dive back and he probably wouldve beaten the throw. Really dumb just standing there and then tripping over his feet.

    jmills, there’s nothing like fresh mint. If it’s abundant enough, you can dry it, sprinkle it on the carpet and leave it overnight. Vacuum next day. If you throw some cloves around, so much the better.

    People who live in 100-year old houses like I do have to take certain measures. We had mint growing on 3 sides of the house, but we had to get rid of them, sadly. Now, I’m left to figuring out how to bring them indoors, and even when they won’t provide a copious yield, I’ll have the fresh stuff back in business.

    I made a mint-cilantro chutney last week with the fresh stuff. Makes all the difference.

    The people I would like to see off this site permanently aren’t presently here, and that’s only because they thrive on conflict and deliberately kick it up out of nothing to get attention for themselves. I don’t even consider them Yankee fans, they’re some desperado club of 2 who use the site to sublimate, and they’ve chased off some very high quality posters.

    So yeah, I would be happy if they disappeared.

    Straw,

    I hope to get to a Penguins’ game in November, when they visit the NY area.

    At least, St. Louis is an iconic team, so rooting for them won’t be hard.

    I used to always root for the AL years ago. Even rooted for Boston to beat the Mets in ’86. That was before all of this media manufactured ‘rivalry’ stuff got so effing annoying, and before ESPN became an extension of the Red Sox’ PR department.

    Now, I root for anyone who is playing Boston to win.

  189. TheStraw October 19th, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    Oh you care what I do because if you didn’t YOU WOULDN’T BE ADDRESSING ME.

    You are absolutely, positively out of control with your posts. Every other post is you. Shut up!

    I have chased off no one and do not thrive on conflict, but I do love to get into it with people with ZERO power on here running their mouths about banning people like you. You sure have chased off people with your posts tonight and your running your mouth to someone else about how you got me banned (knowing full well I’d read it and respond) when you didn’t.

    So if you don’t like the manner/delivery/tone/etc. of someone’s posts they should be banned? Who died and made you Yankees Lohud comments god?

    First you say you got me banned then you said you didn’t – you’re full of sh it.

    What you are is a reverse troll. You come on here and post incessantly until someone has an issue with it then you play the victim.

    I would be happy if you shut up for one day of Yankee Lohud posts and I don’t mean don’t post at all, I mean don’t post every minute like it’s a private IM chat when it’s not. You posted in a vacuum and a bubble until I came along to burst it.

    Sabres have an incredibly young team. They have shed almosy all of their mediocre veteran contracts, except Vanek and Miller. They may both be gone before the deadline. The Sabres will not be a contender until 2015, but may be in good shape if their prospects pan out.

    You know again big bad fake “Karma” goes down in flames. But that would be the easy route. So just to go along with the silliness, I think I am actually coming around on this Karma thing.

    The fact that the biggest fraud on this site is such a Red Sox hater and also the reason for destroying this blog this year, it makes sense that Boston would make the W.S. this season. And the KARMA sticking it to her like she deserves.

    So yeah GO KARMA, I actually see it now. :grin: She deserves to have to witness Boston go to the W.S. I can comfortably say Karma does work I guess. What goes around comes back round and round and round again, right… The negativeness that she has dealt out here time and time again is finally coming around. GO KARMA!!! You earned it toots!! Ortiz’s Karma is no match for yours. Enjoy the Fall Classic :lol:

    See ya all in 2014. I’m outy!! Don’t miss me now. :wink:

    As Judge Judy says – beauty fades, dumb is forever. Unknown is waddling proof.

    ***********

    mick – great job cutting to the chase, as always.

    Duh Innings, I see you hit it out of the park with your 11:52 post. You say what so many others think about the queen of high drama, “Pruf”, the TRUE Yankee fan who turned in season’s tickets because the Yankees traded his favorite rookie. I guess he told them! LMAO.

    **********

    Didn’t watch tonight’s game because I was out with former neighbors who were back for a visit. blake, you actually called it from the beginning when you said that Detroit’s bullpen was going to be their achille’s heel.

    The Cards will be easy to root for.

    For the more educated in the bunch – Clemens won WSs when he was with the Yanks and using steroids. His karma happened years later (see HOF vote).

    If you have more than one tooth, you of course realize that there is no exact timing for push back. But come, it does.

    Congrats to the Sux for outlasting Detroit.

    And oh yeah – GO CARDS!!!

  224. yankinvegas October 20th, 2013 at 3:01 am

    Just got back from Buffett concert.
    I think there is no way the Tigers are in on Cano. They have to sign Scherzer and Miggy. And they are stuck with Fielder who might turn out to be the worst contract of all. Detroit needs relief pitching and speed, not Cano.
    As for the World Series, the hitting is about equal. I give the Cards a slight edge in starting pitching. Bullpens are about equal. Boston plays a shade better defense.
    Boston has the last 2 games at home and they also have the umpires in the bag. All you need to see was the pitches to Boagaerts from the CYA winner.
    Buck and McCarver will grow sappy over their 2 favorite teams and I will listen to Shulman and Hershiser on the radio. Much more down the middle.
    St. Louis in 6.
    By the way, the last time we saw Jimmy Buffett the Yankees had missed the playoffs and one year later we won the WS. Here’s hoping that history repeats itself!!
    Cano, Tanaka, Beltran and Drew. We will have to delouse Drew, but can field the position and should hit 15-18 HR at the Stadium.

    blake-

    everyone understands that nunez or stewie or overbay or ichiro or hafner etc aren’t good players either because they simply haven’t ever been good or they have been doing what they do too long to be good anymore.

    why is it so difficult to see that hal,levine, newman, cashman, eppler,etc also have either never been good or have been doing what they do too long.

    excellence is a battle fought daily on a thousand fronts. it is easy to fake it and make excuses when it doesn’t happen. when you see someone good at what they do, it’s obvious and right out in front of you.

    yes the cardinals seem to be doing it. the red sox have caught lighting in a bottle with dramatic changes trying to be better. it worked this year. probably not for long because of their own dysfunction.

    the cardinals are slow and steady good. that’s the best kind. here’s hoping they sweep the red sox and set an example for the yankees on how to create an organization.

    If the Red Sox win the WS, you have to believe the Yankees will do something more outside the box and be a bit more aggressive this off season.

    One example…

    They can trim more payroll by trading Gardner.

    Another example…

    They go all in bidding for Tanaka because his salary would be lower against the luxury tax.

    Maybe you package one of Phelps/Warren, one of Romine/Murphy and Gardner (walk year) for a cheap band aid at 3B

    Maybe you stick with Nunez at SS.

    Maybe you go with Navarro at C instead of McCann.

    This way you have enough money to sign the best bats out there: Ellsbury + Choo.

    And you bring in Ubaldo Jimenez.

    It’s the week of organizational meetings. It looks to me like no one is losing there job over the drafting and development problems. More bad luck, I presume.

    I simply cannot see the team outbidding others for the top players. It has been a long time. Other teams have money that they are willing to spend. I think they will look at the Sox and see of they can add Gomes’ types believing that is the way to go.

    For the last three years I have hoped for efforts to reconstruct the team. Still hoping. Doubting much more.
