WORK THIS WEEK
Not really work, per se, but it sounds better than “fun.”
Punk Hits: “So You’ve Decided to Join the American League!" A pamphlet for the Astros, inspired, like all good things, by The Simpsons. Subscribers only.

PRODcast 32: The Sanford Koufax Episode.  Did you know Sandy Koufax was born “Sanford Braun”? I did not. 

I discussed my Top 10 Films of 2012 with the lovely and talented Bill Hanstock over at Progressive Boink. 

I did a Top 20 Musical Things post too, a while back.

And lastly, while I didn’t have anything to do with it, I’m thrilled about the fandor/keyframe rebranding/redesign. It looks awesome.

WORK THIS WEEK

I guess it’s all baseball this week. More film and music stuff in the offing, though!

  • Productive Outs PRODcast 25 with Grant Brisbee (McCovey Chronicles, SB Nation) and NAILS.
  • Brian Science, wherein I try to determine why people think a very successful general manager is a complete idiot.
  • I did a chat at Baseball Prospectus. It’s mostly about baseball, but there’s some other silliness there too. 
  • Oh, I guess there’s one non-baseball thing. The nice people at OMG Vinyl are giving away a copy of the forthcoming Kowloon Walled City record. You can enter here

Want to hear Angels OF/DH/masher Mark Trumbo talk about Converge and hitting off Justin Verlander? Of course you do. 

productiveouts:

  • Agenda
  • Emails
  • Musical Guest: Death Grips
  • Special Guest: Mark F*cking Trumbo
  • The Giants Win the Pennant!
  • Incorrect World Series Predictions
  • Give Credit Where It’s Due, Dude: Managers & Front Offices 
  • Ozzie Guillen? More Like Ozzie Goin’, Am I Right???
  • The Future Is Bright for the Cardinals
  • Market Research

Other information of note:

If you click on this, you should get the full, giant version of my scorecard from tonight’s game.
Giants win their sixth elimination game to advance to the World Series. Scorebook is Bob Carpenter’s Baseball Scorebook, “fan” version. It also got soaked in the rain tonight, so the image is a bit mottled-looking.

LAST WEEK’S WORK
My interview with Matthew Lillard about his directorial debut, “Fat Kid Rules the World,” acting with the Misfits, and being an old-school Apple evangelist.
My three-part series on going beyond the velvet rope for the American League Division Series games in Oakland. Part 1 is free to all. Part 2 and part 3 are for Baseball Prospectus subscribers only. Part 3 is my favorite, though. Here are some behind-the-scenes pictures I took. 
Brooklyn Vegan announced the release of the forthcoming Kowloon Walled City record, has preorder info, and is streaming a track. More info at Brutal Panda Records. 
I do a weekly baseball and music podcast with my Productive Outs partner, Riley Breckenridge. You can listen to the last episode here. Pretty excited about the guest we have lined up for this week’s ep, so now’s a perfect time to RSS or iTunes it.

Johnny Damon gets a lot of flak in Moneyball. Jonah Hill’s character is happy to get Damon off Oakland’s payroll, and his computer doesn’t like him either. Perhaps he used the film as motivation today, as he hit a two-run homer in the second inning to put the Rays ahead of Texas.
Meanwhile, hipster manager Joe Maddon hasn’t seen Moneyball yet, as he’s currently making his way through a Werner Herzog retrospective.

Giants win!

Giants win!

This is the worst heckler in baseball history. Not sure how good the audio is, but this exchange happened.

Fan 1: Since you’ve been yelling, USF has been winning!

Worst Heckler in History: If I don’t yell, they won’t win!

Fan 2: I’m willing to take that chance.

The entire section erupts in laughter.

My baseball people might be interested in listening to this. It’s the latest (#28) “Up and In” podcast from Baseball Prospectus. I’m not a big podcast guy, but I make it a point to listen to every episode of “Up and In.” These guys are incredibly knowledgable about baseball, and especially minor-league ball and high-school and college ballplayers. Also, Goldstein is an old Chicago punker and knows his music. (Bear Claw was the featured musical guest on the last podcast. Rad, right?) They also love to talk food and booze. Highly recommended. 

Also, they field a question from me in this one. If you only want to hear that, you can ffwd to 29:00 and hear them make fun of me. Goldstein also mentions Kowloon Walled City, and threatens to play Snailface on a future episode. 

Listen!
