PRODcast 125: How Hard Is It to Slide into a Base?

Welcome to the second episode of the new leaner, meaner, and more in-betweener Productive Outs PRODcast. Here's what's in store for ye:

The Open.

The Email o' the Week: Zak writes in to discuss baseball and music. 

The Baseball Things. 

  • How hard is it to slide into a base? How much harder than that is it to stay on said base? Come on, guys. 
  • Who the fuck is Trevor Story?
  • Robertson Canoe’s hot stort
  • Halos be shifting like crazy – a not-so subtle fuck you to Jerry Dipoto?
  • O’s off to a hot start, TWINT & BARVES not so much

The Old School Player of the Week is:

STEVE SHARTS. 

This is a deeeeep cut. Sharts, whose name is a sentence, never played in the big leagues, but spent six years in the Philadelphia Phillies organization as a middling left-handed reliever between 1985 and 1990. He spent two years at AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre, and posted decent numbers, but never got the call … which is probably a good thing because and announcer saying “Steve Sharts on the mound for the Phillies” would have broken the Internet before the Internet even existed.

He also looks an awful lot like Thomas Middleditch from Silicon Valley and Tom Kenny from Mr. Show (and Spongebob).
