2019 Rays Walk-up Music Bracket: Quarterfinals

We had some CLOSE matchups last round

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Round of 16 saw some incredibly close matchups, with four of the eight within a mere vote or two, so make sure you have your voice heard here in the quarterfinals.

By the way, with Avenged Sevenfold and one of the two Led Zeppelin eliminated from 2019 contention, I can nearly sleep peacefully. I honestly wouldn’t hate any of these eight winning it all, with the exception of the one remaining Zeppelin song, only because I don’t want a repeat winner. But that’s just me.

My personal vote is still for Zunino (Tom Petty, “I Won’t Back Down”) with my prediction sticking with Kiermaier (Rick Ross, “Hustlin’”).

Quarterfinal Matchups

Brendan McKay: “Butterfly Effect” by Travis Scott

Matt Duffy: “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin

Brief Thoughts: “When the Levee Breaks” is clearly a better song. But I value fresh blood more.

Michael Brosseau: “Mo Money Mo Problems” by The Notorious B.I.G.

Kevin Kiermaier: “Hustlin’” Rick Ross

Brief Thoughts: This is such a glorious matchup. I’d be curious what a non-Rays, aka non-KK biased audience would say. I definitely think Ross and Kiermaier prevail, Biggie has been winning by some tight margins.
