Hoffman picked up career save #600 in Tuesday’s Internet betting win for Milwaukee. Hoffman is baseball's career saves leader and he will likely retire at the end of this season.
Milwaukee is having a poor season but they will still have a say on who makes the playoffs and they hurt the Cardinals on Tuesday night. St. Louis can’t afford to be losing games but that is exactly what happened on Tuesday.
Hoffman a Sure Hall of Famer – Hoffman is baseball’s career leader in saves with 600 so there is no question he will go into the Hall of Fame. He has actually been pitching pretty well lately for the Brewers. He struggled earlier in the season and was taken out of the closers role. He had an ERA of over eleven in his first 18 appearances this season. The Brewers are out of the race so they can afford to put Hoffman into save situations and he has done well lately. He has a 2.63 ERA in his last 29 appearances. He has nine saves in fourteen chances this season. He has had 676 careers save opportunities and has 600 saves. His first career save came with Florida in 1993 and then he spent most of his career with the San Diego Padres. He joined the Brewers last season.
Mariano Rivera Closing Fast – Hoffman’s record of 600 career saves may not last more than one season. The best closer and arguably the best pitcher in baseball history is New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. He entered play on Wednesday with 555 saves and he is still considered the best closer in all of baseball. Unless something unforeseen happens he will surpass Hoffman’s record in the next two Internet betting baseball seasons.
Bad Loss for St. Louis – The Cardinals can’t be losing games to teams like Milwaukee in online betting if they expect to make the playoffs. The Cardinals are trailing the Cincinnati Reds in the National League Central and they need to win a lot of games down the stretch if they are to have a chance to catch the Reds. Losing to Milwaukee against the baseball odds at Sbg global is simply unacceptable.
