It takes a true champ to at least try not to sound like a douche when covering the Goo Goo Dolls' "Slide." Arroyo was coming off a year which included a comeback from a 3-0 deficit against the Yankees in the ALCS, and a subsequent World Series championship with the Boston Red Sox. So naturally he was up for the task, and unfortunately, he failed.
Arroyo's guitar playing is solid, but what ruins it is how his voice feels like sandpaper against your eardrums. Mind you he released a whole album of him singing. And here, Arroyo is forced to restart the song because apparently someone messed up the chords. He doesn't sound any better the second time around, and ironically, the pitcher feels out of pitch.
