Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka will release a "compilation of his favorite tunes" called Music from the Mounds Mound

The album will include one original track, "Gyro Ball," which will feature former J.Geils harmonica player Magic Dick, former Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, and NESN announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy. (Dice-K does not sing or perform on the album.) "I enjoy a wide variety of music, especially rock, hip – hop and R&B," Matsuzaka said in a statement. "I am excited to share my favorite inspirational songs with everyone in Red Sox Nation and beyond.

Wow, who would have thought that all of Dice-K's favorite songs would exclude Japanese music and appeal directly to Boston Red Sox fans?  What a crazy coincidence.  What's not a crazy coincidence is loving Extreme.  There's a hole in my heart that can only be filled by you.  Hole-hearted, hole-heaaaaaarteeeed. And now that song is in your head.  You're welcome.
