Found October 31, 2012 on Love My Bravos:
PLAYERS: Kris Medlen
TEAMS: Atlanta Braves
I wake up this morning and for the second year in a row this demon creature is in my house. He looks ready. lockerz.com/s/257791712 — Kris Medlen (@KrisMedlen54) October 31, 2012 I love that this is becoming a thing.  Allow me to paraphrase..."OK, he won Halloween last year. If he wins today, it's called two in a row. And if he wins again next year, it's called a 'winning streak'!" Also: who would have guessed Meds ever reads anything outside the bathroom? ;)
