PRODcast 78: Blaine Boyer, Guillermo Rodriguez & Justin Thomas Walk Into A Bar ...
Productive Outs
The PRODcast

… and the bartender says, “Here’s your DFA. See ya.”

(It’s funny because it’s true.) 

Some items of business:

- We ask that you please rate and review the show on iTunes, whether or not you listen to it via iTunes. Please. 

- You can follow Riley on twitter @rileybreck and Ian @teen_archer. You probably already follow@ProductiveOuts, but if not, you can! Because this is America. 

Now, on to the show!

- First comes the open, where we babble. (0:00-5:01)

- Then come the emails, where you babble. (5:39-30:26)

- Next up is the musical guest, which is FLOORBuy “Oblation” here. (31:12-36:13)

- After that are the baseball things! (36:13-1:10:36)

  • Michael Pineda is not smart
  • The BARVES backed their way into a ridiculous pitching staff (and are very good)
  • Also, what the hell, Brewers?!?
  • Speaking of: you should never swing your bat in the dugout: Braun vs. Segura
  • Bryce Harper’s thumb
  • Ben & Sam’s “Hustle” Questionaire on today’s Effectively Wild
  • Sonny Gray is good
  • So are Collin McHugh and Garrett Richards
  • Christopher Russo is a thing

- The musical advice happens here, but it’s less an advice request and more of, y’know, just a question. What are the first and last albums listed alphabetically in your iTunes? (1:11:21-1:25:33)

- And then the farewell. Bye!
