Miguel Batista mysteriously pitched kind of okay for the Mariners last season (I remember him being worse than his 16-11 record), so I guess that headline is slightly unfair to him. In fact, I was going to apologize for it, but then he went and hung out with Kenny G. His idol Kenny G.
[Batista] spent 20 minutes backstage with his musical idol, Seattle native Kenny G. They talked music, baseball and saxophone breathing techniques in a private waiting area before Batista was serenaded with his very own Kenny G session.
"He played for me," Batista said. "It was my favorite song, 'Alone.' Now, I feel like I've had everything. 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."
Completely devoid of musical taste, more like. That's a real holy trinity of awesomeness, Miguel: God, Sandy Koufax, and Kenny G. I guarantee you that no other Mariners fan hates the M's as much as I do.
