The Show Speak:
One of my favorite Spring Training experiences in the Cactus League (2003) is Oakland A's relief pitcher Keith Fowlke burning a fan with a terrific one liner as he was warming up in the A's bullpen down the right field line at Phoenix Municipal stadium.
Obnoxious White Sox Fan: "Hey Fowlke, how many saves are you going to blow this year?"
Keith Fowlke: Throwing a warm up pitch without hesitation: "One more than you."
Fast forward to the twitter age and Atlanta Braves reliever Peter Moylan attempting to "burn" the rock group Nickelback over the weekend:
"Note to @nickelback please attend a @foofighters concert. That's how's it should be done chad."
Nickelback was not to be out done with this unprovoked twitter bomb from the Braves reliever:
"? for you Pete, is watching Kimbrel better from the bench or on TV?" (Kimbrel is the Braves closer)
At least Nickelback stayed a...

Nickelback, noted for being one of the worst rock bands in recent memory, were almost run out of Detroit on Thanksgiving. Now they might want to steer clear of Atlanta, too. Peter Moylan, a reliever for the Atlanta Braves, tweeted to Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger suggesting he attend a Foo Fighters concert to learn how to put on a good show. Kroeger took it upon himself to...
There was an old joke about oldtime songwriter Steve Allen it dates back a bit, but stay with me.
Basically, two guys are talking about great songwriters and the first guys says, "Steve Allen's pretty good. He's written hundreds of songs." The other guy, without a beat, says, "Really? Name two."
For all I know, Nickelback may be a pretty good band...
Peter Moylan is a reliever for the Atlanta Braves, apparently. I follow the greatest franchise in the history of sports, so you know, he's not really on my radar. Anyway, this Moylan guy must have gotten back from a Foo Fighters concert and decided Nickelback needed a kick in the ass. The tweet reads "Note to @nickelback please attend a...
This is quite the Hot Stove season for Braves fans, huh? It's not every year that you trade one player (Martin Prado) to all 29 other teams in baseball, plus a few minor league affiliates, for every guy over the age of 21 who's ever stepped foot in the outfield or on the dirt between second and third base. And Jair Jurrjens! In the course of just a few weeks, he became a...
The Reds are "very interested" in trading for Braves starter Jair Jurrjens, tweets SI.com's Jon Heyman. They could face stiff competition though, as Heyman adds that ten teams are involved.
It was reported during the GM meetings that the Reds had inquired on Jurrjens as part of their search for a front-end starting pitcher. GM Walt Jocketty said over the weekend...
Although there is a report to the contrary, the Reds do not appear to be going hard after Braves starter Jair Jurrjens.
