This thread is coming off BubbaFan's recap of the recent Reds/Phillies preseason game where Brad Lidge entered from the bullpen to the sounds of "Closing Time". I cant imagine many less intimidating songs and visions of Lidge skipping to the mound leapt to mind.
I dont recall that any recent Reds closers had an "entry song" at GABP. i'm really hoping Cordero pulls it all together and has another solid season. BUT...I was thinking down the road that one of the young prospects will certainly take over as the closer. It sure would be nice to have a little bit of atmosphere at GABP and I'm selling the need for a closer entry song, this year and down the road.
2009 Cordero closer song --- "8 Mile" by Eminem
2011 Burton/Roenicke closer song --- "Sober" by Tool
(might have a little trouble getting the powers to be to put "jesus wants his fucking whistle" over the PA obviously...)
What say you?
