So sit back, relax, get a cold one and a hot dog, and count the minutes down to Opening Day with your number one hit music station with traffic and weather on the nines!!!!!

Billy Butler - "All You Can Eat" by the Fat Boys

I love it whether the food is cold or hot

Put a burger on the plate, and it'll hit the spot

Cause Billy is fat, you see.

Lorenzo Cain - "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails

Lorenzo needs to stay healthy this year, but it seems almost inevitable he will spend time on the disabled list. Will we find out what we have in Lorenzo this year?

I hurt myself today

To see if I still feel

Bruce Chen - "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" by the Pet Shop Boys

He's gone from rotation ace to being long-man in the bullpen in one year.

What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

Well, a 5.07 ERA for one.

Aaron Crow - "Die Young" by Ke$ha

I feel like Crow is going to implode one of these years.

Young hearts, out our minds

Runnin like we outta time

Tim Collins - "I Wish" by Skee Lo

I wish I was a little bit taller

I wish I was a baller

I wish I had a girl who looked good I would call her

Is he a reliever or can he be a starter?

What do I have to do

To try and make you see

That this is who I am

And It's all that I can be

Jarrod Dyson - "Speed is the Key" by the Sugarcubes

Straight into the air

At lightning speed

Fasten your seatbelts

The future is mine.

Alcides Escobar - "I've Got You Covered" by Sugar & The Hi Lows

Alcides' reliable defense helps me sleep at night.

I've got you covered

So go ahead and sleep tonight

I'm not like the others

You will see in time

Jeff Francoeur - "All Washed Up" by the Urge

Hey! You're all washed up

Would you please shut up

Take a walk that way

Well we know he won't "take a walk."

Chris Getz - "True Grit" by Glen Campbell

But other's have known

Few battles are won alone

So, you'll look around to find

Someone who's kind

Someone who is fearless like you

The pain of it will ease a bit

When you find a man with true grit

Alex Gordon - "How You Like Me Now" by the Heavy

See, I've been a bad, bad, bad, bad man

And I'm in deep,

Yes I am

Now that I can be alone with you

I won't throw away the chance

There's no other place like home with you

I just wanna stay here and love you

For $25 million.

J.C. Gutierrez - "Who Are You?" by The Who

I really wanna know.

Kelvin Herrera - "Howlin' for You" by the Black Keys

Throw the ball

To the stick

Swing and miss

And catcher's mitt

Strike two

Baby I'm howlin' for you

Luke Hochevar - "Here it Goes Again" by OK Go

Oh, just when you think you're in control

Just when you think you've got a hold

Just when you get on a roll

Oh here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again

Oh here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again

Oh, here it goes again

I shoulda known, shoulda known, shoulda known again

But here it goes again

Greg Holland - "Game Over" by Destiny's Child

Nobody ever could handle this like you

For anybody askin’

The game is over

You shut your mouth

How can you say

I go about things the wrong way?

Elliot Johnson - "Mr. Everything" by Donnell Shawn

I wanna be your everything

The one that you call on

You had me at "Spork", Elliot. You had me at "Spork."

George Kottaras - "Keep on Walking" by INXS

You're here for one reason George.

Clever words on smooth tongue talking

Shove it brother - just keep walking

Luis Mendoza - "Hair" by Lady Gaga

Ignore his low strikeout numbers. Let Mendoza be Mendoza.

I just wanna be myself and I want you to love

Me for who I am

I just wanna be myself and I want you to know

I am my hair

Mike Moustakas - "I've Got the Power" by Snap

It's gettin' it's gettin' it's gettin' kinda heavy

It's gettin' it's gettin' it's gettin' kinda heavy

Well, let's hope Moose doesn't get kinda heavy.

Salvador Perez - "There Goes My Hero" by the Foo Fighters

There goes my hero

Watch him as he goes


Ervin Santana - "Damaged Goods" by Fastball

I know I should just leave you alone
