I believe we’ve found the reason why Chris Davis had so many strikeouts, and his batting average was down in 2009. It wasn’t his swing, the league adjusting. It was the fact that he apparently is seriously into Mariah Carey.
I mean – check out this video below that was sent to me from the site “12 Angry Mascots“. It appears to be some sort of stealth cam interview with Chris where he says how much he’s into Mariah Carey.
Here’s what I think about Mariah Carey. Really pretty girl. Has a chest that can stop time. Her voice? I have no problems with her voice. She can sing quite well. But the music she actually sings? Shoot me now. In even writing this news story, I’ve had to put on the new Black Sabbath album just to get through it.
I then decided to look into what else he listens to. Found out his walkup song when he was here was a track called “I Got it” by someone called “Gorilla Zoe“. It’s actually worse than Mariah Carey. As bad as Carey’s music is, there’s something nice to look at when you’re (unfortunately) forced to look at it. This other song – no such bonus.
I’ve taken it upon myself to suggest a few pallete cleansers in the mp3 widget below. The first two songs are the Carey & Gorilla tracks, and then eight others I suggest would make far better listening. Some are metal, some are classic rock, there’s a jazz song in there, too. Check it out.
I’ll wrap up with this. I was going to suggest Chris talk to some other players about it. My first thought lept to CJ Wilson, as he leads the Guitar Hero things a lot, and then I went to his Myspace page, and saw he has Lady Gaga in his mp3 player. There goes that cred. ;)
