PRODcast 102: Yorn Mawncawder Is A Red Sawk
Productive Outs
The PRODcast

We’re back with another PRODcast, and this one is goofy and irreverant as ever.

It goes like this … 

(0:00-3:30) The open

(4:27-9:20) The musical guest: BABY BOY. Buy 2015 here.

(9:20-14:47) The Pipin’-Hot Take of the Week: Mat Latos, Kind of a Dick.

(15:30-35:45) We Read from the Electronic Mail Sac

(36:20-56:10) The Baseball Blather

  • Sam & Ben are running an independent baseball team this summer – The Sonoma Stompers
  • MONCADA to BoSOX (Jerry Remy will pronounce his name “YORN MAWNCAWDER”)
  • Pitchers and catchers report! Beat writers are taking horrible photos.
  • Didja hear? A-Rod’s back!
  • BJ Upton is changing his name to Melvin
  • John Axford’s Oscar predictions – 18 for 18 in 2014.  How’d he fare in 2015?

(56:10-1:01:11) The Old School Player of the Week:



Gaze upon his holy visage.

Brusstar played nine seasons with the Phillies, White Sox and Cubs as a reliever. He was 28-16, w/ a 3.51 ERA, 14 saves and a 1.360 WHIP in his career. Ol’ Brusstar’s Millions was drafted four (!) times, has an incredible 80-grade merm, a 70-grade scowl, 70-grade DADHAT, and a serious plustache (which looks an awful lot like his eyebrows were cloned and fell down to his upper lip).
