the record falls...

 Braves rookie pitcher Craig Kimbrel has just broken the all time Major League record for saves by a rookie in a season by pitching his 41st save. And it's not even September yet.
 Craig has pitched 65 2/3 innings, with 107 strikeouts and only 25 walks. He hasn't allowed a run in the last 33 2/3 innings.
And he has struck out at least 2 batters in each of the last 8 innings pitched.
People are talking about Fabulous Freddie Freeman as Rookie of the Year. Sorry Freddie. Craig has this one locked up tight. No question. No arguments. End of discussion.
