160 - Astro Fans May be a Little Spoiled
Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week the Hooks & Runs, giddy from Houston's thrilling 12-11 win over Texas Monday afternoon, examine the complaints and criticisms against Dusty Baker. Is it possible that after owning the American League West lock, stock and barrel since 2017 Astro fans have become spoiled by success? Texas is not going to give this race away -- Houston will have to earn it, there will be bumps along the way, and Dusty Baker will forever be Dusty Baker and all that entails.

Hooks & Runs best of second quarter, 2022.
Rex: Tygers of Pan Tang, "Bloodlines." HM:  Metallica, "72 Seasons," Overkill, "Scorched," Metal Church, "Congregation of Annihilation."
Andrew: Noah Kahan, "Stick Season," actually released in mid-2022, which makes us wonder about Andrew's calendaring skills.
Craig: Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, 'Weathervanes"
