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:

@PeterMoylan
"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:

@nickelback
"? for you Pete, is watching Kimbrel better from the bench or on TV?" (Kimbrel is the Braves closer)

At least Nickelback stayed away from the Braves epic choke over the last month of the season.

Until Next Time,
