HERMITOLOGY



My name is Riley, and I play drums and write music for a band called Thrice.

This is where I ramble about music, sports, food, books, the interwebs and whatever else I deem worthy of sharing.

In addition to my ramblings here, I'm also the co-founder of a baseball-specific twitter feed podcast and blog with my good friend Ian, called Productive Outs.

I also have a bandcamp page and a soundcloud page that I'll be posting my own music and remixes on every once in a while.

Productive Outs - PRODcast 66: Yasiel Puig Destroyer Of Baseballs

productiveouts:

The lord giveth, and then she taketh away. We had hoped PRODcast 66 would be a joyous occasion during which we would celebrate the achievements of Yasiel Puig and also his recent 23rd birthday. But it turns out today is a day that will live in infamy, as our favorite baseballing player, Mike Trumbo, was traded from the Angles to the Diamondbags. It is with a heavy heart that we bring you this progrum. 

Without further ado, though:

-Open

-Emails from Canadian lunatics 

-Musical guest: PUIG DESTROYER 

-Disembodied human vocal guest: Marc of USS Mariner

-Hot Stove Stuff:

  • Trumbo to AZ
  • Robertson Canoe to the Marines
  • Geoff Baker’s article on the dysfunction in the Ms’ front office
  • McCann, Beltran, Ellsbury & Rokey Kroda to the Yanks
  • Granderson to the Mets
  • Napoli back to the Sox for $16MM per
  • Halladay retirement
  • Other less notable moves

-What’s next: Riley’s impending relocation to the Phoenix area, Ian working on BP Annual et c. 

-So long

A tough one, but a good one.
