Disgusting Dominance

Mariano Rivera recently passed 1000 career innings. It's a meaningless milestone, but now he qualifies for this list, which basically speaks for itself.

Am I the only one who remembers a time, just a couple of short years ago, when we weren't sure Rivera would be a Hall-of-Famer? One-inning reliever or no, the gap between him and the rest of the list is just sick.

Interesting how many pitchers currently among the worst in baseball are fairly high on that list. Definitely shows that one inefficiency in how many teams operate is that if you used to good, you'll keep getting chances long after you've proven to be worse than replacement level.
