D-backs, Rockies greatest hits set to Daughtry's 'What I Want'
Two National League teams have emerged from the best-of-five bedlam known as Major League Baseball's Division Series, and with the NL Championship Series set to begin Thursday night in Phoenix, the World Series is getting closer and closer.
For the freshly victorious Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies, wins in the NLCS and an eventual clubhouse champagne party with the World Series trophy being passed from player to player is what every player wants.
Here at MLB.com/Entertainment, we're celebrating October with postseason highlights of the D-backs and Rockies set to some of the best music out there, and today's clip, fittingly, is "What I Want" from Daughtry's debut album.
"What I Want" is the young Diamondbacks, hot as the desert sand after a three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs that highlighted their exciting core of players -- shortstop Stephen Drew, 2006 Cy Young winner Brandon Webb, sparkplug outfielder Eric Byrnes and automatic closer Jose Valverde, to name a few -- and got them primed for their first NLCS appearance since they won it all in 2001.
And "What I Want" is certainly about the biggest Cinderella story of this year's playoffs, the Rockies, who have been on a tear since mid-September. Their mix of veterans and youngsters is jelling at the right time under manager Clint Hurdle, and with leaders Todd Helton and MVP candidate Matt Holliday bashing the ball and No. 1 starter Jeff Francis coming into his own, the D-backs will have all they can handle in this all-NL-West NLCS.
We'll have LCS highlights to more music from Daughtry -- plus KT Tunstall, Elton John and Pat Monahan. Keep checking back for your daily fix.
