Closers are a unique breed.
They need to be ready to come into the most stressful games at the most stressful times. They only need to get three outs, but in these high leverage situations, a small mistake can cost their teams the game.
High levels of performance at this intensity require high levels of adrenaline, and that is kind of what brought about the idea for this slide show.
For each of the top five closers in the MLB right now, I am going to provide an entrance song that will not only get your pulse pumping, but the lyrics of the song will have something to do with that pitcher.
On the scale of relative importance, I would say that I more heavily weighted the applicability of the lyrics over the actual music itself.
Obviously, use the comments below to argue with my closer rankings, or more importantly, my taste in music.
