Hello again baseballing people. I would be lying if I said I wasn't out of semi-serious things to write about so I chose to discuss the most serious topic baseball can bring about: walk up songs. Needless to say, walk up songs can mark the life or death of a player's career.
That brings me to the point of this article. Which Cardinals player has the best walk up song? I have my own beliefs on this matter, but I thought it would be fun to hold a tournament to see what others have to say. I created a bracket (the seeding was randomized) that over the next week fews will hopefully settle this matter. Since 24 doesn't evenly fit into a bracket, 8 players were given BYEs. After digging around, I was able to come up with walk up songs for 24 players. I will let you know that it was almost impossible to find the songs of some rookies and relievers. Here's a preview of what Round 1 could bring:
- Randal Grichuk will look to capture the hometown crowd by using Here Comes The Boom by Nelly in what projects to be a deep tournament run.
- Jedd Gyorko could square off against BFF Brandon Moss in Round 2, but Moss will have to get past Adam Wainwright's Song of the South by Alabama first.
- Cultures collide as Stephen Piscotty brings Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins against Lazenca, Save Us, a song by South Korean rock band N.E.X.T. that criticizes our treatment of the enviroment.
- Trevor Rosenthal goes with cliche pump up music but will he be able to close out...okay, I'll stop now.
