Oh, no... Jack Bauer somehow linked to baseball

In one of the oddest stories you’ll read this spring,’s Mark Bowman writes that Braves outfielder Nate McLouth changed his number to 24 this offseason because of a certain television program that uses the same digits.

“The only reason that I took 24,” McLouth said Saturday, “is because it’s my favorite TV show and Lost isn’t a number.”

Derek Lowe was also hoping to land the number this winter, but it probably had nothing to do with Jack Bauer. Or even Kim Bauer.

Seriously, someone get us a link to an Opening Day countdown pronto.
