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, but when it comes to their hit songs or any of their songs, for that matter I say, "Really? Name two." I cannot.
Now I have no beef with the Canadian quartet. To borrow the words of countryman and a legendary songwriter, Neil Young, long may you run.
I know Braves reliever Peter Moylan a little better we're not tight, but I could pick him out of a lineup and he could bust my chops by not returning the favor and forcing me spend the night in the tank.
He's a smart guy with an interesting sense of humor. It's part of what has made him a Twitter sensation.

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...
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: ...

When I was younger, growing up in Savannah, Georgia, I remember being glued to Atlanta Braves baseball from the age of six. That year was 1990, and as has been well documented the next year started an unprecedented run of division success in Atlanta that has made it the brand it is today—sprinkled in were the opportunities to watch legends at work...
The Pirates are close to reaching a deal with free agent Nate McLouth, a source confirmed to MLB.com on Tuesday afternoon. McLouth, an outfielder, was drafted by the Pirates in 2000 and broke into the big leagues in 2005 before being traded to Atlanta in 2009.
Although there is a report to the contrary, the Reds do not appear to be going hard after Braves starter Jair Jurrjens.
