Nice story about Kane Davis

I'm probably the last person to realize this, but as a late-inning reliever who throws gas, Kane has a nickname waiting to happen.  Check out this story, and don't miss this tidbit at the end--it's no surprise to those of us who followed his success last year, but still nice to hear:

At one time, Davis's out pitch was a nasty sinker. But now he relies more on his fastball, change and slider.

"I don't know how to explain it," he said, "but my velocity has gone up. I've topped out out at 99 mph, but throw mostly in the 95-96 mph range.

"I'm actually throwing harder now than I did in the past - and with no pain."
