A brief comment on the controversy du jour; that being Mets closer Billyld Wagner's use of the Metallica hit Enter Sandman as the musical accompaniment to his emergence from the pen, though we all know Mariano got there first, back in 1997. Truth is, we don't much care for death metal (and apparently neither does Rivera), though at this point it's his signature, so we've come to appreciate it. If Wagner wants to be a copycat (and he has been using the song for several years), that's rather sad for him now isn't it. Truth is, if given the choice, we'd rather just have organ music. Eddie Layton, we miss you.
[CORRECTION: It appears Wagner may have been playing it way back in 1997 as well. Does this change things? Not really. If you come into a town where it's already established a another player's signature....looks kinda bad. But, seriously, we really don't care.]
