Where's the Follow-up Question?

This article over at discusses future Yankees set-up man Joakim Soria's desire to rid himself of his current nickname due to its violent connotations. No problem there. I do, however, have a problem with this sentence:

"Soria pointed out that Mariano Rivera and Trevor Hoffman, two of the best closers in history, have no nicknames."

Umm . . . We call Mo, 'Mo' and 'Sandman'. I'm pretty sure that for years Hoffman had been known as 'That old guy who still closes.' Get your facts straight people.
