Trevor Hoffman Inching Closer to Cooperstown

MIKE POMERANZ: All about Trevor Hoffman. It's Trevor's time, that is for sure. He'll be inducted on Sunday, July 29. 18 seasons in the big leagues and 16 of them in San Diego. First guy to 500 saves. First guy to 600 saves. He finishes with 601 in his career.
