Walk Up Songs

I read this article in the New York Post the other day and was playing with solving it for him with limited success.  

Aaron Judge’s meticulous search for walk-up song drives wife crazy

I thought I'd open it up to the rest of the commentariat.  It would be cool if we found the perfect walk up songs for the whole line up.

Publius -

"Giancarlo Stanton "All Or Nothing At All", Frank Sinatra"

Wow. That's perfect.

I thought about "Loser" for Josh Donaldson as well but switched to "Yesterday"

Stanton - Money For Nothing - Dire Straits

Really great choice of song but Stanton delivers every once in a while. May I be so bold as to move that one to Josh Donaldson?

Eddhall69 said...

Doug, the only thing is Jackie D is here for one more year. Stanton is here for an eternity or so it feels like.

Doug K. said...

Good point. Although the above "All or Nothing At All" really does describe what I like to refer to as the two Stantons.

Maybe Donaldson is "Nowhere Man" or should that belong to Hicks.

Too bad Cashman doesn't get a walk up song because "He's a real nowhere man living in his nowhere land making all his nowhere plans for nobody." is a very apt description.

Eddhall69 said...

Or "Fool on the Hill"

Carl J. Weitz said...

@ Edhall69....I had the exact same song in mind for Judge. They can play the intro and first stanza of the song.

Every mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive
He stood six-foot-six and weighed two-forty-five
Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to big John
(Big John, big John)
Big bad John (big John)

No effing walk-up music for anybody. Get a hit or a walk or move a runner up without baseless aggrandizing preceding your efforts. It's been done before.

Failing that: "It's Over" for Hicks has me laughing. Good one, Publius!

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Who's sorry now.

Hicks. Stanton. Jackie Robinson. Jogginson Torres if he doesn't mash it from the start.

And any other Ca$hole reclamation waste of roster space that comes along during the season.

Publius said...

IKF, "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'", Rolling Stones

JM said...

How has no one suggested "The Jolly Green Giant" by the Kingsmen for Judge?

I'm shocked that our aging crew has missed this one.

Hicks- any song from Caddyshack
