Joba Chamberlain and David Robertson are always game for a great interview. The two of them sit down with Kim Jones before the Subway Series (click the image below to watch).

In the interview, both relievers talk about their experiences playing when they were younger, what it was like to NOT pitch in that 15-inning game and Robertson's new reputation as the "Houdini" of the Yankees' pen. Lots of lightheardedness awaits!

Mariano Rivera will be known for a long time as baseball's best closer, but people may not know all his special routines for shutting the door on opponents. Fortunately, he's willing to reveal a few secrets to his recipe!

Some hints:

He always throws 10 to 12 pitches in the bullpen.

He takes two to four steps out of the bullpen before jogging to the mound.

Sometimes he doesn't even need eight pitches on the mound to get ready.

He usually knows which batters he's facing, but not always.

Watch the whole video to uncover it all!

In five hours and change, baseball again takes over our lives, giving us something to look forward to every day.  About darn time. And this beautiful weather, in Boston and New York, surely is payback for a brutal winter, and it comes at the perfect time -– to usher in first pitch.

The blog also has returned, as you can see. Or read. But there’s a wrinkle: I’ve made the leap to Twitter –- @YESKimJones –- and mostly will provide in-game updates there. For me, that’s a whole new world. Let’s hope I can manage the technology.

Wishing you a happy and healthy season. More updates from Fenway Park on Twitter and I’ll be writing here --  at least a little something –- almost daily. Promise.
