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
- ... 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:
- 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.

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:
-Emails from Canadian lunatics
-Musical guest: PUIG DESTROYER
-Disembodied human vocal guest: Marc of USS Mariner
-Hot Stove Stuff:
-What's next: Riley's impending relocation to the Phoenix area, Ian working on BP Annual et c.

It would appear that only six MLB players have ever worn #60 on purpose, and they are: Scott Schoenweis (12 years), Dave Heaverlo (7 years), Manny Corpas (7 years), Rauch (5 years), Todd Coffey (5 years) Rocky Biddle (5 years) … a few at 4 and 3, but probably on accident.
Dick Allen (who wore the number in 1977 as a member of the A’s) is the career bWAR leader amongst #60s, with 58.74. Former Giant Matt Williams wore #60 in 1987. No baseball player will ever hit 60 home runs again*.
IN OTHER NEWS.... we make podcast for you, yes?

This is normally where I wax about how great the show is, but I can't lie to you: this show is terrible. Like,. the worst we've ever done. I wouldn't even listen if I were you.
KIDDING! It's awesome. Carson Cistulli was great. The Wonder Years were great. Riley and Ian were pretty good. The theme song is still the theme song. We're going to re-do that one of these days.
All non-theme-songs are played by The Wonder Years from their new album, The Greatest Generation. Used without permission. Please don't sue us.

Great show. Long show. Lot of emails. We laughed together, we cried together. We maybe even learned something. About each other -- and about ourselves.
There was also Hunter Pence.
Musical Guest: KVELERTAK. Their new album is called MEIR, and it rules.
Human Guest: Jason Collette of BaseballProspectus, the Towers Of Power Fantasy Hour Podcast, Rotowire, TheProcessReport, & RJBullpen (Did we miss anything?)

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