      Again a big surprise. But my favorite current and all time is Mo.
      I do also like Trevor Hoffman.
      From the olden days, my favorite was Sparky Lyle.

      Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.
      Phil Rizzuto-a Yankee forever.

        Goose, Mo, and Joba.

        Sounds like the Three Stooges!

        But they are my favorites.
        I AM SO THANKFUL FOR BEING BORN IN NEW YORK AND FOR BEING A FAN OF ALL NEW YORK SPORTS TEAMS

                Why Trevor Hoffman over Mo?

                I like Eckersley too when he pitched for A's When I was a kid, But Noone beats Rivera for me. Closers useally have something for intimidating the batter, a stair, crazy facial hair, just acting nuts but Mo is a skinny wiry guy who dosen't do any theatrics but is probally the most intimidating, because he is going to come in and blow guys away with basically one pitch! That's why he is always going to be number 1 for me.

                      1. Hoyt Wilhelm (Dad's favorite pitcher growing up)
                      2. Tug McGraw (Nothing like a reliever who ignites his entire team...)
                      3. Stu Miller (We've not really had a guy like Miller before or since throwing 50 mph with incredible movement AND NOT throwing a knuckler. And he is quite underrated.)
                      4. Firpo Marberry (Really the first closer and chronically underrated.)
                      5. Pat Neshek (Weird delivery, great stuff, great guy!)
                      "They put me in the Hall of Fame? They must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel!"
                      -Eppa Rixey, upon learning of his induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

                      Motafy (MO-ta-fy) vt. -fied, -fying 1. For a pitcher to melt down in a big game situation; to become like Guillermo Mota. 2. The transformation of a good pitcher into one of Guillermo Mota's caliber.

                          Ah Larry Sherry. The WS MVP in 59'. He was a great Dodger.

                            "I don't like to sound egotistical, but every time I stepped up to the plate with a bat in my hands, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the pitcher."
                            -Rogers Hornsby-

                            "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
                            -Rogers Hornsby-

                            Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

                              1.John Franco - A lefty and threw the Screwball. How can you not love him.
                              2.Rollie Fingers - I still say if he hadn't of been injured, Brewers would have won.
                              3.Trevor Hoffman - Reliable and not overpowering.
                              AL East Champions: 1981 1982
                              AL Pennant: 1982
                              NL Central Champions: 2011
                              NL Wild Card: 2008

                              "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham
