Tidbits from the Astros Broadcast Today

  • Forgot it was Friday the 13th until Bill Brown dropped the word Triskaidekaphobia on us, which according to Wikipedia is fear of the number 13. Wikipedia also says there is a specialized form of this phobia for Friday the 13th called paraskavedekatriaphobia.
  • Bill Brown slammed baseball uber-gossip Peter Gammons as “irresponsible” for reporting on ESPN that Brad Lidge wanted to get out of Houston. Brown talked to Lidge before the game and Lidge said he’d never said that to anyone. Good on ya’ Brownie. Gammons probably can’t find Houston on a map.
  • Zambrano is doing his usual job of making the Astros look silly with 6 2/3 innings of shut-out ball and an RBI. At least he hasn’t homered. Maybe we can do something against the bullpen now.
