Zachary Levine talks Hall of Fame and Astros, Masahiro Tanaka and Nolan Ryan returning to Houston.

James Yasko of Astros County and myself have done the unthinkable and teamed up to bring you yet another Astros podcast. The format for TAB is a little different in that there are not time constraints and it's unscripted, with the exception of the opening sentence. Each podcast we'll talk about whatever we feel like talking about.

This episode:

  • We talk to Baseball Prospectus writer and former Houston Chronicle Astros beat writer Zachary Levine about the Hall of Fame and the Astros.
  • Masahiro Tanaka and what the Astros true intentions were.
  • The possibility of Nolan Ryan returning to the club and what that could mean for the Astros organization.
  • Tim knocks out some homework with a question about how the Spaniards gained political control over the Inca empire.

PODCAST NOTE: We have decided that we will not be sticking to a regular schedule for this podcast. We are still shooting for a podcast every two weeks, however, the day we record will be a moving target; Therefore we will not be doing a live podcast thread on this site. I will try to get out live recording times ahead of time. Your best bet to catch the live recording is to follow us on Twitter at @AstrosCounty and @CrawfishBoxes and also follow us on Mixlr.

The benefit to this is that we have the flexibility to react and talk about topics sooner when they may be more relevant, which potentially could make this podcast more ranty. And more ranty is a good thing...I think.
