A's Outfielder Mark Canha Defends His Walk-up Song Choice After Fan Chirps Him

It's a complete unknown how the A's will fare against the Yankees in the AL Wild Card Game, but we have a good guess how Mark Canha feels going to the postseason for the first time. 

Like a Rolling Stone. 

The classic Bob Dylan song has followed the A's outfielder to the plate this season, and he's not turning back from it. One A's fan randomly used a NBC Sports Bay Area tweet to criticize Canha's walk-up song choice, prompting the slugger to defend his choice of music. 

The song has worked this season, too. Canha, 29, has hit a career-high 17 home runs this season, and his .326 on-base percentage and .450 slugging percentage also are career bests. 

As a pinch-hitter, the ball's been Blowin' in the Wind for Canha to the tune of two home runs and a .385 batting average. 

Everyone thought the A's were bound to fall, but the Times They Are A-Changin' in Oakland. As for Canha and his song choice, we have one message: Don't Think Twice, It's All Right.
