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.
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.
