Pat Neshek, who currently plays for Colorado Rockies, has been a top-notch reliever over the past six years. He’s made two All-Star appearances, including one this season (while with the Phillies). He’s a good pitcher!

Neshek’s also a huge baseball memorabilia collector. He wrote about his card collection (and, incidentally, his love of metalcore music) on his website, and he also is a poster on the Sportscollectors.net message board.

Though his website has since fallen silent, Neshek is still an active poster on the message board, and he recently posted on the site about a run-in with D-Backs pitcher Zack Greinke. Neshek called him an “ahole” and a “turd” and said that Greinke told him “no I will never sign for you.”

If you want to be really nice, send him a Zack Greinke autograph.
