We here at Mike and the Mad Dog Blog have been wondering, thinking, pondering and then wondering again about why Mr Francesca loves Bronson Arroyo so much. Well, we did a little internet CSI on Mr Arroyo and peeled back the layers and found out why Arroyo is music to Mike's ears.

This from Wikipedia: In 2005, Bronson Arroyo released his debut album, Covering the Bases. It included covers from bands such as Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots and Foo Fighters. The album also includes the Red Sox victory song Dirty Water by The Standells, in which Arroyo is accompanied by Johnny Damon, Lenny DiNardo, and Kevin Youkilis. He also taught Kevin Millar how to play guitar and performed vocals for the song Tessie as covered by the Dropkick Murphys. ******

He taught Kevin Millar how to play guitar!!!! This is HUGE. Let's connect the dots here.

Mike wants Millar on the Mets. Could he be representing both Millar (who Tony Bernazard does not like) and Arroyo?
The Yankees have been without a guitar player since Bernie Williams (who Mike definitely has a man crush on)
Bernie Williams had an album called the Journey Within. Arroyo's is called Covering the Bases.

It's not about the pitching, it's about the MUSIC. Glad we cleared this up

Yes - the paying guitar is a big plus.

Also, he was named after Charles Bronson. That's awesome!
