All-Time Saves leader Trevor Hoffman retires

Baseball's all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman has announced his retirement, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney. Hoffman retires at a good point for himself and the Brewers, he being past his peak and with the Brewers welcoming in pitcher John Axford after an impressive 2010 season.

Hoffman finishes with a career 2.87 ERA and 601 saves over 17 seasons with the Marlins, Padres, and Brewers. He will certainly be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
