With the 2010 baseball season upon us, we wanted to continue a Hidden Track tradition started in 2007 where we chat with of our favorite musicians about their love for America’s past time. For the first part of this year’s Baseball Preview, we asked them for predictions on the upcoming season, while the second part of our questionnaire got a bit more personal.
Batting cleanup in the 2010 Hidden Track Baseball Preview lineup is Tea Leaf Green’s drummer – Scott Rager. Scott participated in our very first baseball preview back in ’07 and we’re excited to have him back to talk about his beloved Dodger, his thoughts on the upcoming season, his favorite ballpark and many other subjects. Check it out…
Hidden Track: What team do you think will win the World Series and what team will they beat in that final series?
Scott Rager: My gut tells me the Yankees will beat the Phillies again in the World Series but my heart tells me the Dodgers will take it all this year.

SR: Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers. C.C. Sabathia of the Yankees.
