You heard it here first, folks! Trevor Hoffman will record his 600th save — before the end of the month!
We don’t know that for sure, but we feel fairly good about calling it. T-Hoff did get number 592 last night, in the first 2010 gonging of “Hells Bells.” The Hoff’ wasn’t perfect, allowing a run, but new set-up man LaTroy Hawkins was perfect in his eighth inning, striking out two.
