But really now, should Hooks & Runs be trolling the Orioles?
In Chapter 1, Andrew and Craig explore Lady Antebellum's rebranding controversy, MLB's major award winners, and Justin Verlander's deal with the Astros. In Chapter 2, they kick off a series on baseball records that are over 100 years old, and in Chapter 3, a nostalgic look back to Pearl Jam's "Ten" and Nirvana's "Nevermind," released 30 years ago this late summer, early fall.
Errata: Lady A's first band was known as " Lady A & the Baby Blues Funk Band." Craig is correct; Bill Virdon managed the Astros in 1980. Bob Lillis replaced him during the 1982 season, then Hal Lanier led Houston to the ALCS in his first year as Houston's manager in 1986. Bill Joyce was a player-manager, common in the 19th century. Allan Travers got paid $50.00, not $25.00 like the other players. Then is was called St. Joseph's College, not university. Roger Clemens became the first to strikeout 20 in a nine-inning game on April 29, 1986.
