Hooks & Runs
139 - Free Agency Watch, Waters' Dark Side and Rihanna's 15 Minutes
Show Notes

With pitchers and catchers reporting on the 16th for Houston and by the weekend for all teams, we look at the unsigned 2023 free agents and their prospects, particularly regarding any possible Astro interest. The unsigned include Trevor Bauer, Yuli Gurriel and some utility options for the Astros. Also this week, The Astros sign Christian Javier to a 5-year deal, Roger Waters is re-recording "Dark Side of the Moon" for some reason and our thoughts on Rihanna's Super Bowl performance.

Errata: A Google search shows no shortage of people or media talking about Chris Stapleton's emotion performance of "The Star Spangled Banner" prior to the Super Bowl. Andrew pronounced Michael Wacha's last name correctly the first time. The 1998 Super Bowl (The Evil Beaver Bowl) featured Green Bay vs Denver, not Green Bay vs Minnesota.
