The Productive Outs PRODcast
PRODcast 67: Mike Zagurski Is a Professional Athlete

GREETZ, PEEPZ. We have a fantastical episode for you. Whether you like music and baseball, or baseball and music, there's something for every one! Here's how it breaks down:

- The open, where we open

- The emails, where crazy people write to us and we read what they wrote

- The musical guest: This time it's San Francisco psych-poppers WOODEN SHJIPS. Their fourth full-length, "Back to Land," is out now on Thrill Jockey. And it's on Keith Law's Best of 2013 list. ...

- ... which is relevant because Keith Law is our guest this week. He talks baseball and music and past, present, and future with us. 

- Then there's the baseball talk:

  • Michael Morse is a giant, both literally and figuratively
  • Kevin Towers is gutting his farm system
  • Grant Balfour is taking his steakheaded rage to Bawlmore
  • Yankees trade money to the DL for Brian Roberts
  • Masahiro Tanaka is in limbo
  • Raul Ibanez to Los Angeles of Anaheim

- Music Talk: Instead of advice, this episode we disgust our top 10 records of the year. There's some convergence and some of whatever the other thing would be. 

- Then there are the sad goodbyes until next calendar year! Thank you for everything.

PRODcast 66: Yasiel Puig, Destroyer of Baseballs

The lord giveth, and then she taketh away. We had hoped PRODcast 66 would be a joyous occasion during which we would celebrate the achievements of Yasiel Puig and also his recent 23rd birthday. But it turns out today is a day that will live in infamy, as our favorite baseballing player, Mike Trumbo, was traded from the Angles to the Diamondbags. It is with a heavy heart that we bring you this progrum. 

Without further ado, though:

-Open

-Emails from Canadian lunatics 

-Musical guest: PUIG DESTROYER 

-Disembodied human vocal guest: Marc of USS Mariner

-Hot Stove Stuff:

  • Trumbo to AZ
  • Robertson Canoe to the Marines
  • Geoff Baker’s article on the dysfunction in the Ms’ front office
  • McCann, Beltran, Ellsbury & Rokey Kroda to the Yanks
  • Granderson to the Mets
  • Napoli back to the Sox for $16MM per
  • Halladay retirement
  • Other less notable moves

-What's next: Riley's impending relocation to the Phoenix area, Ian working on BP Annual et c. 

-So long
