The Productive Outs PRODcast
PRODcast 41: Tom Seaver's Cabernet Sauvignon Cabaret

Hi, y'all. It's a shortish non-guest show this week. We hope you like it! It's got:

  • Emails
  • Musical Guest: FIGHT AMP
  • Baseball-type things:
    • Is it Baseball yet? No.
    • Vernon Wells drags his piles of money to the Bronx
    • The slow decay of Roy Halladay
    • LOHSE
    • Ricky LOLmero to A-ball
    • Puig to start the season in the minors
    • Fantastrophe Draft … we had it
  • Goodbye! We hope we see you at PureVolume and Baseball Prospectus!

Non-intro/outro songs are by FIGHT AMP off their 2009 LP Manners and Praise. I totaly spaced out ont he fact that they put out a great record last year called Birth Control. My apologies, and you should definitely check it out. They're headed northwestward and then east through Canada with a shitload of other awesome bands, so you should try and get to a show it it's humanly possible.
