PRODcast 117: What A Fool Believes
Productive Outs
The PRODcast

This week’s episode is a short sharp shock to your Matt Harvey-fatigued brain. Get in, get out, get back to work.

(0:00-5:50) The open, and our musical guest: MICHAEL FREAKING McDONALD

(6:30-24:44) The emails

(25:13-42:48) The baseball things:

  • The Angels and Giants have collapsed, and we as fans are left with nothing
  • The Rangers are rolling, and only a game behind the Astros … how?
  • The Blue Jays are destroying, run diff of ~200 (196), ~100 (88) more RS than any other team
  • NL seems to be pretty much wrapped up - LAD, STL, NYM, PIT, CHC
  • Matt Williams is a bad manager, maybe the worst
  • Cardinals still employing Devil Magic

(42:35-49:27) The old School Player of the Week Is:


This is the only known photo of Bob and his 70-grade DADHAT, DADGLASSES, STORKNECK, and PORNSTACHE. Bob was a lanky OF who played in 20 games for the Royals in 1980. In 26 career ABs he posted a .308 BA w/ two doubles, a bomb, seven RBI and a stolen base. And that was it. After spending 8 seasons in the minors, he sniffed the bigs for 20 games, played one more season at AAA Omaha in 1981 and hung ‘em up at age 26.

He uh … has a Facebook page now. It sucks.

The Productive Outs monogram tee is now available in a new colorway!

These are single-pass printed on lightweight, slightly fitted, deep heather grey Canvas brand tees. They’d go look great with your Dodgers, Blue Jays, Cubs, Mets, Rangers, Brewers, Padres, and/or Rays hat.

We also have the old school script logo available in white-on-black, which is also being single-pass printed on lightweight, slightly fitted Canvas brand blanks.

Both are available in limited quantity, so don’t dilly dally if you want to pick one up.


Thanks, as always, for your continued support.

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