Miguel Batista has a passion for writing, shite music

Former Toronto Star scribe Geoff "White Jays" Baker reports that former Jays pitcher and novelist Miguel Batista had his dreams come true on Tuesday night when the Sultan of Sucky Sax Kenny G serenaded him backstage at a concert in Phoenix. Batista was measured when he contextualized the moment:
"I've talked pitching with Sandy Koufax, had Kenny G play for me. Maybe if I could have an interview with God, then I'd be served. I'd be complete."
Sandy Koufax. God. Kenny G. Now there's a holy trinity for ya.

(H/T to Deadspin.)

On the topic of perspective
Nothing to do with the Jays or baseball, but worth noting: Smug conservative wannabe media gadfly goofy nutty cuckoo thingy Rachel Marsden really isn't taking her latest breakup very well. At all. (H/T to Neate.)

Anyone who's been paying attention the last few years knows this.

For anyone with an interest in, you know, good music (particularly early 70s funk) you may not be aware of the fact that our favorite alto sax douche didn't always make a name for himself by shitting on classics by Louis A and slinging soulless, smooth jazz elevator music pap.

As a young man, Kenny G played sax and flute for an outstanding funk group called Cold, Bold & Together. I believe they only released a couple of 45s, which aren't easy to find, but two of their tracks can be found on a fine little compilation released in '04 called Wheedle's Groove on Light In The Attic records.
