Please enjoy this video from CNNSI.com where the Iron Man discusses how amazing Jonny and Kimmie are...
"When the bullpen comes in for the Atlanta Braves, I think your night's just about over." :D

If you're as amused by pitcher hijinks as I am, you'll like this blip on MLB.com: Kimbrel turns over 'goody bag' to Gearrin
In a tradition that dates back more than five years, the least-tenured Braves reliever has been responsible for carrying a bag filled with candy, food and sports drinks to the bullpen before every game. The bags have featured My Little Pony, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus in the past.
But knowing what responsibility awaited him this year, Kimbrel took action and found a camouflage roller suitcase to use.
"He spent a lot of time on the Internet looking for the right bag," Gearrin said.
The part that cracks me up is that, in spite of Kimmie being last year's ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, they were still making him carry the bag. And I like how they conveniently left tobacco off the list of things in the bag. Bowman thinks we don't know about the dip? We do. But we appreciate the efforts to hide it from the fans. :)
