Mariano Rivera is the All-Time Saves Leader 2

As if he needed another notch on his Hall of Fame worthy belt, Mariano Rivera set a new record today when he picked up the 602nd save of his career today surpassing Trevor Hoffman for the most all-time.

For future trivia reference, Rivera did it against the Twins in a 6-4 victory at the Stadium. Jorge Posada was in the game, but as the DH so it was Russell Martin who caught the record breaking out.

    I'm actually very upset about this. I had tickets to today's game but could not make it as I desperately needed a root canal which was scheduled for 2:00.

    To make things worse I saw at least a dozen people on my subway ride home, the D-train, that clearly were at the game, but probably left in the 6th or 7th innings. Can't understand why staying for a full 9-innings has become such a chore for Yankees fans.

    Even though the save is an overrated stat, Mariano is still an all-time great pitcher. His numbers aside from saves are remarkable. He also has broken the all-time record while still currently the best at his position. The only guy I know that did that was Jerry Rice when he broke the all-time receiving yards record.
