    mariano uses enter sandman just like billy wagner. difference being that wagner started using it 3 years earlier and actually picked the song himself (with some advice from jeff bagwell). the yankees brass picked the song for mariano as a marketng ploy after witnessing the crowd's reaction to an opposing closer's entrance song one game. now there is a controversy over the song it seems (mainly due to yakees fan's arrogance). imo, who gives a rat's a$$. but given the facts, it should be considerd wagner's song over rivera's if it really came down to it. mariano was quoted as saying he basically doesn't really even know what the song is all about as he only listens to christian music.

    This argument just shows the height of Yankee fan arrogance. Some of them actually believe the sun and moon revolves around them.

    Wagner just to avoid this controversy should come out to Blackened or Damage Inc., good metallica songs. Not that crap Enter Sandman.

    The contoversy seems to have been started by Mike and the MD - at least they were the first I heard talk about it.

    I agree that nobody should care, but given the facts, Mariano has had it in NY longer than Wagner. I mean, if you went around NY and you asked who comes out to Enter Sandman, it would be Mo. He's the "Sandman." Saying that, Wagner has just as much claim to it, and he should come out to it.

    i think it would only be yankees frans who would know that for the most part, because up until 2 days ago i had no clue what song mariano came out to. either way, i think it's a stupid argument and could really care less what song a player uses. maybe one of them should switch to sweet caroline, lol.

    Well, being that most Mets fans saw Wagner come out with the Phillies, they knew about his song before this year. It's not Wagner's fault if Yankee fans were ignorant of this fact. And the fact that he "owns it in NY" is very geo-centric. Who cares?
