We here at Notinhalloffame.com always take the time to look at any major retirement in sports, especially in Baseball, as anyone who has ten seasons under their belt is automatically placed on the ballot once eligible.
Saying that, San Francisco Giants Relief Pitcher, Jeremy Affeldt has announced his retirement after fourteen seasons in Major League Baseball.
Over his career, Affeldt excelled in the middle relief position, and while he was never an All Star, as a member of the San Francisco Giants, the team in which he spent the last half of his career with, he would win three World Series Rings, as he helped San Francisco to a title in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
It should be noted that Affeldt’s post season record over eleven series’ shows him with a ERA of 0.86, and a WHIIP of 0.702 over 31.1 Innings; an indicator of his skills when the lights shone brightest.
While he is unlikely to get a single vote five years from now on his first Baseball Hall of Fame ballot, Giants fans will remember his work to get them three championships. Those three rings area lot better than most of the Baseball Hall of Famers have!
