Rob Neyer over at Baseball Nation posted this entry about this version of a Woody Guthrie song about Joe DiMaggio and his hitting streak.


Houndmouth covers Billy Bragg & Wilco

Sorry, and with all due respect to Mr. Neyer, but I much prefer the peppier Wilco version; the other one sounds too much like a dirge.

What do you think?
