I GOT YOUR ENTRANCE SONGS

8

A new season of baseball means it’s time to tweak the playlists of those clever P.A. sound techs. Look, if you’re hitting .218, tone down the thrash metal. Not a good match. Whether it’s coming out of the bullpen to the mound or strolling up to the plate, here’s my list of what you should be hearing this summer at a ballpark near you.

Milton Bradley, Kerry Wood, Rich Harden: Hurt“- Johnny Cash

Miguel Tejada: Lies“- Thompson Twins

Mark Prior: Don’t You (Forget About Me)“- Simple Minds

Mark Texeira, C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett (and basically all the Yankees): Paid in Full“- Eric B and Rakim

Prince Fielder: The Chubbster“- Chubb Rock

Jason Giambi, Alex Rodriguez, Rick Ankiel, Jose Guillen, Troy Glaus, Eric Gagne, Gary Matthews Jr + others: The Needle and the Damage Done“- Neil Young

Gary Sheffield: Big Mouth Strikes Again“- The Smiths

Manny Ramirez: With or Without You“- U2

Juan Pierre: Money For Nothing“- Dire Straits

Can you think of any other good ones?
