Reddick’s switch to `Careless Whisper’ proves a winner

Josh Reddick is as quick as anyone in the A’s clubhouse to change his walkup music.

He did it last night. And Careless Whisper by George Michael might be around for a while.

Reddick tripled home a run, walked and scored a run and dropped down a bunt single and scored in the A’s 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox Monday.

    “I hope it’s not just a passing phase,’’ reliever Sean Doolittle said. “When it came on, we were all singing it in the bullpen.’’

Josh Donaldson said he liked the switch too, but he was having trouble remembering which WWE wrestler it was (Rick Martel) who used it.

“I liked it,’’ Donaldson said. “I think we all did.’’
