We all know that MLB baseball is full of superstitions. Commentary is thinking that last night’s 9 zip shellacking at the hands of MLB’s worst ballclub was probably the result of the recent price gouging and money grabbing directed at certain season ticket holders by the ‘Stros. The baseball gods at times can be unmerciful. We will see if they take it out on the team during the NLDS.

A housing bond, on the other hand, is apparently a gimmick. Or so the politicians admit.

Houston has been caught sitting on more than $30 million in bond approvals for affordable housing. No, money wasn’t misplaced – unlike the $46 million in TIRZ dollars that Chronicle reporters Rebecca Elliott and Mike Morris discovered in their “Lost Money” investigation.

I guess folks that are in need of affordable housing don’t vote.

Commentary ran into a City Hall insider yesterday who told me the firefighters could very well win their election this November. Interesting.

The team is in Detroit today for a 3 game series that starts tomorrow. Maybe they will use their day off today to go check out the new flick “Detroit” which has a 100% rating today after 29 reviews on rottentomatoes.com.
