Makes just as much sense as that stupid Outfield song walk up, sometimes the best baseball stuff is dumb.
...except that the Outfield song is something Beckham personally requested. So, playing his favorite song is "dumb", but continuing to call him some lame nickname that he really doesn't care for is "golden"?
But, at any rate, I'm more worried about Beckham's hitting abilities than his views on an old nickname that a former manager coined.
