O'Ventbrel piece in "USA Today"

2

Seth Livingstone at USA Today wrote up a nice feature on the relievers. "Despite recent struggles, the trio's statistics are staggering. "Kimbrel has blown away Texas Rangers closer Neftali Feliz's rookie record for saves set last season. Kimbrel had amassed 45 in 51 chances with seven games left. Most impressively, he had struck out 124 in 75⅓ innings. "Venters, who has earned his own nickname, 'Everyday Jonny,' had a 1.69 ERA despite his heavy workload and had fanned 93 in 85 innings. O'Flaherty boasted a 1.02 ERA, best among major leaguers with at least 30 innings pitched." The story ran in the Thursday, September 22, edition, and includes (if I may say) a veruh, veruh nice picture of the guys.
