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

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. 

Episode errata:

  • Keith Law’s top 100 songs

Two musicians who love baseball, but don't take it too seriously.
