  1. No doubt a HOF-er. He was never Mariano, but he's stayed clean and 600 damn saves is insane, considering only Mo and he ever came close to 500! 3rd Pad in the HOF, but 2nd REAL Pad in the Hall (sorry, but Winfield as a Padre is wrong) after Mr. Padre Tony Gwynn.

    I will go to the game when they retire Trevor's #51 and comes in to Hells Bells for the last time.

  2. Trevor was definitely clean. He never showed any of the usual symptoms of being on PEDs — his body stayed lean his entire career; his head didn't grow in size; he was in complete control of his emotions — there was never any sign of steroid rage. Anybody who is a Padres fan knows how clean he lived — he had an incredible workout routine and was very picky about what he put in his body. Don't even give any inkling that he used anything illegal to improve his performance. Plus, how would PEDs help a changeup?

  3. Clean or dirty, congrats on a great career. (and FINALLY – wasn't sure if he would ever retire, and if he kept pitching, wasn't sure if Mo even wanted to pitch long enough to catch him.)

    With a little luck and some help from the bats, Mo should be in line for most saves ever sometime in the summer of '12.
