Great to know we have talent on the farm: Mason Williams and Dante Bichette Jr. have a band


 
They're already planning for life after baseball.


Like 90 percent of the planet, Dante Bichette Jr. - (Son of Rockie and former Yank 1st round pick) - and Mason Williams - (Not the guy who recorded "Classic Gas," but the kid viewed by many as the best prospect in the Yank system) - have formed a musical band of merrymakers and uploaded a couple songs to a free music website.

Their band is called Navy58.  If he were alive, Lester Bangs could sum this up in 60 words. For my money, it's stock-issue suburban strip mall rap with an R&B back beat courtesy of Garage Band. (I assume you weren't expecting Patty Page.) Hey, they're not bad. But Justin Timberlake can sleep tonight. 

Listen for yourself.

Argh. A pox on Garage Band and the hell that it spawns.

And now, a heavy metal guitar solo, honoring Jonathan Papelbon!

I love the Lester Bangs reference...kicked the hell out of Michael Kay totally fanning on Ken Singleton's Blues Busters reference today. "Ringo", my ass.
