to 100 faster than anyone before....

Name me some great Braves pitchers. From any season. C'mon, even you 7 Braves haters that gather in your mom's basement once a month to stick pins in a Chipper Jones voodoo doll can acknowledge some amazingly great pitchers in the Braves past.
Smoltz, Glavine, maybe a guy named Spahn... well out of all the boys who have taken the mound representing the Braves, can you tell me who got to 100 strikeouts the fastest?

Okay, the pictures may have helped you. But for those of you who don't know yet, it was The Baby Faced Assassin, Craig Kimbrel.
 100 K's in 59 1/3 innings. That's not bad. Can anybody besides dayf tell me who's record he broke???

All this from a kid who looks like he should be delivering my newspaper.
I'm not sure if he even shaves yet.

Go get 'em kid... I just hope Freddy doesn't wear your arm off....

That would have to be the one and only John Rocker!

that would be correct Ryan... it took Big John 70 innings to get to a 100.

Do they still deliver newspapers?

That said - less than 60 innings. That is a crazy ratio. Is that an MLB record?

Hey, that Voodoo doll works and everyone knows it...

Here is hoping he has a longer career than Eric Gagne and John Rocker!

Fredi's already worn out Venters' arm... I think Craig's should hold up for a while though.

I love watching (most of) the pitching this year, esp. Hudson and Beachy.
