Fernando Perez wrote an entertaining post on The New York Times blog about batters choosing their music to accompany their walk to the plate. Who knew Perez loved the theme from The Price Is Right? Or that Evan Longoria favored “Down and Out” by Tantric?
Here are some Indy suggestions:
Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” for the Rays’ Carlos Peña, who ranks No. 2 in the AL with 35 walks this season.
Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” for San Diego’s Brian Giles, who is batting .175.
Outkast’s “The Way You Move” for the Rays’ Carl Crawford, Major League Baseball’s leader in stolen bases with 29.
Buffalo Springfield’s “Expecting to Fly” for right fielder Jeff Francoeur of Atlanta, who has 85 put-outs and no errors.
Neko Case’s “The Needle Has Landed,” to the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez. No explanation necessary.
