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.
Our Reasoning: Nicknamed "Big Daddy" by former teammates, Holliday offers the main pop in the lineup, after that guy over at first base, of course. And as of now, Holliday still has the biggest payroll on the roster.
Alternate tune: "Holiday" by Madonna

The Player: Lance Berkman
The Song: "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" by Elvis Presley
Our Reasoning: One of Berkman's nicknames is "Fat Elvis." And everyone knows Cards fans are big softies. Welcome home, Lance Berkman.
