    Curt, you will like this one:



    Well, here’s trivia question No. 1 for you: Since the 2012 All-Star break, Clayton Kershaw has the best ERA in baseball (1.92) among pitchers who have worked at least 250 innings. But can you guess who’s second (at 2.40)?

    And while you ponder that one …

    Here’s trivia question No. 2: Over the past eight full months of baseball (dating back to August 2012), can you name the only pitcher in either league who has won three pitcher-of-the-month awards?

    OK, ready for those answers? They happen to be the same guy. And it wouldn’t be a guy named Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Kershaw, Zack Greinke or, well, anyone you’d think of off the top of your head.

    The correct answer is Kris Medlen, of those very same “ace-less” Atlanta Braves.

    Funny tweet listed in a Braves story:

    For the record, Dan Uggla is on pace to drive in almost 100 runs in spring training alone. #Braves #lovespringtraining
