Learned of this by way of Deadspin: David Wright is retiring the Beastie Boys' "Brass Monkey" from his roster of at-bat songs. We're sad to see it go, seeing as how fans in the stands at Shea last year always seemed to get a kick out of it. You could see registering on the faces of guys of a certain age demographic: "Hey, I remember this song. Nice choice!" Some people sang along. Really broke up the monotony of interchangeable reggaeton that made up most players' at-bat music. Mets2Moon and I liked it so much we named our fantasy team after it (yes, we co-own a fantasy team. That was going to have to come out eventually. Now you know).
Deadspin has the (sometimes snide) suggestions flowing in their comment section. Someone on there throws out the "You're the Best" Karate Kid theme song. I'll second that.
