Even the Giants slash Zito and Haren

I went to the Diamondbacks/Giants game tonight (shush) with my roomie because it was Barry Zito bobblehead night! He's now on a shelf and... staring right at me. Hmm, that's kind of creepy. I'm going to have to move that.

I showed up at the ballpark like an hour before the game started (because I'm Singaporean and "kiasu" and very determined to get that free bobblehead) so I had time to walk around the park and investigate the area behind the scoreboard which has super good food. I've been to AT&T Park a few times before, but because I had the time to walk around, I was really struck by how beautiful the park is. Like, it's so beautiful it's almost obscene. Why do the Giants have to play there? :P

Anyway, my thing with the Giants *sigh* is that I cheer for the starting pitchers I like: Zito, Cain, Lincecum and Lowry. Yeah. >.< So I did really enjoy tonight's game! Lowry didn't have a very good first inning - he threw like 25 pitches - but after that he settled down and did pretty good. He got so many strikeouts! And the bullpen didn't blow it (despite Vinnie Chulk and his 24032750 balls), so he got the win.

I bought a program and there was an article in it that was supposed to be about the young Giants pitchers, but actually was about Barry Zito wistfully reminiscing about his harem of pitchers in Oakland.
