Fresh off signing a seven-year $120 million contract
, Matt Holliday
is reaching out to St. Louis Cardinals fans through Twitter
to share life's little moments.
And defending his admiration for incredible rock band Creed
Holliday tweeted this Thursday afternoon:
Fair enough, right? A man's entitled to telling people about his favorite bands. And fans are happy to see this guy is already training for the season. But then it got ugly, sort of.
First there was shock.
Then a diss at his at-bat song from last year
(which definitely got the fans singing along as any regular fan could attest.)

A particularly memorable retort among the pages of them.
Then came the dozens and dozens of supporters for Holliday, and for Creed.
Holliday ended the kerfuffle with the above update.

Here's a humble suggestion:
