5. Hunter Pence (No. 8, RF)
Song: "A Warrior’s Call," Volbeat; "Breakn’ a Sweat," Skrillex
This Hunter splits his time between heavy metal (Volbeat) and EDM (Skrillex) — and both are appropriately energized walk-up tunes. Plus, we like what the titles say about Pence — certainly a warrior who’s not afraid to break a sweat.
6. Brandon Belt (No. 9, 1B)
Maybe he prefers to listen to the crowd?
7. Gregor Blanco (No. 7, RF)
Song: "Welcome to Jamrock" — Damian Marley
One of the best reggae rockers to come along in many a moon, this cut from Bob Marley’s son — Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley — is a rollicking choice for the walk-up.
8. Brandon Crawford (No. 35, SS)
Song: "Writer’s Block," Royce da 5’9
On principle, we are against anything that uses the term "Writer’s Block" — which puts the Fear of Editor into every journalist. Plus, this song features Eminem, a proud Detroit guy. So, maybe, Crawford should get a new walk-up song for this series.
9. Pitcher’s spot
Barry Zito (Game One starter) might turn to one of the best rappers on the planet, Nas, for "Doo Rags." We’re just glad that he doesn’t use one of his own tunes.
