Rank 'Em: Greatest closers

Where does Mariano Rivera rank?

With the game on the line and history at your disposal, who are you giving the ball to in the ninth inning?

Celebrating the moment with his first career RBI on a bases-loaded walk, Mariano Rivera became just the second player in MLB history to accumulate 500 career saves when he closed out Sunday's win against the Mets. But is he the best closer of all time?

From his time as John Wetteland's opening act through more than a decade's worth of ninth-inning dominance, Rivera has put up huge numbers in both the regular season and postseason. But do you rank him ahead of multiple-inning closers like Goose Gossage? What about all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman?
