This week we discuss the continued drama in Oakland and Las Vegas, whether Luis Arraez is a legitimate .400 threat, the Houston Astros' dire injury situation, and a new Beatles song on the books thanks to artificial intelligence - will AI be good, bad or indifferent for musicians and music fans?
Errata: The Kansas City Royals won the World Series in 2015 ... The Vegas Golden Knights (NHL) lost in the Stanley Cup finals in their inaugural season, but won the Cup in 2023 ... Las Vegas is also home to the Las Vegas Raiders (NFL) and Las Vegas Aces (WNBA) ... Stevie Nicks sold her songwriting catalog to Primary Wave ... Don Kessinger, Not Doug Kessinger.
