The Player: Colby Rasmus
The Song: "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd
Our Reasoning: The young center fielder made headlines last season for allegedly complaining and wanting to be traded from the Cardinals (which Rasmus, Tony La Russa and John Mozeliak all denied). In the meantime, while the guy may have some growing up to do on and off the field, here's to letting his rebellious spirit to soar!
Alternate tune: "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by the Clash

The Player: Matt Holliday
The Song: "Big Poppa" by Notorious B.I.G.

Alternate tune: "Holiday" by Madonna

The Player: Ryan Theriot
The Song: "Otherside" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
