3rd in a series: Jesse Gonder the catcher for the pathetic Mets that inspired indie rock icons Yo La Tengo has a grandson Jase Turner, a former minor league player, who keeps athletes eligible at mighty Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland, and listens to both Coldplay and Little Dragon


Weird path in baseball music nexus

Young Gonder Turner yonder

And I admit for a minute there I confused or fused Little Dragon of Sweden (“high”!!, “twice”) w Imagine Dragons who I first heard via Eric Lindley pka careful)

This has close to 3m hits on YouTube whereas Jesse Gonder despite being minor league player of the year and called the best natural BL from Oakland had only 220 mlb H:

That I would do that —the below has close to a BILLION hits – reveals me as the Al Schact of would be Lyor Cohens:

and and: and this is the music blogger or music guy with blog equivalent to protecting the plate with two strikes and managing a flare to opposite field but I met Eric Lindley in 2010 fall and Imagine Dragons’ first Interscope release was not until 2012 so it was Lucky Dragon that careful tried to hip me to. They who were in 2008 Whitney Biennial.

edit to add, on Sunday: apparently there was a lock-down at O’Dowd the day I was gonna go up there and interview Jesse Gonder’s grandson so its better than just as well that TMW said let’s go to the City SF to the two museums we like there. Meanwhile there’s something in the papers today about cutting sports from Oakland public schools.
