    Gio shuts out the Cards again in the 8th. That's 38 innings without an earnie, for those of you following along.

    On that note did we not recently have a bobble head night for a player that got traded before it?

    Ghosts are very impartial beings. I mean, it had to be a ghost or other similar supernatural being, because there is no such thing as an Astros fan.

    Basically. Gomes bobblehead night was the 23rd of July last year, and he got traded on the 26th.

    I do believe that is who I am thinking of, though if my memory serves correct, he wasnt on the team at all on his night.
