Giants starting pitchers

Meters make the world fun

I think that was the best Giants game I've ever been to!

Baseball-wise, anyway. I've never seen that many stolen bases (3), or that many guys getting thrown out at home, and I for sure have never seen Lincecum get that many strikeouts because he got a career-high 13. Seriously, this is the best 12-year-old pitcher in all of baseball!!!

(Oh yeah, the Giants lost, but that's not important.)

I was telling lastcatastrophe about how Timmy (TIMMEH!) gets angry sometimes when he doesn't get strikes called and loses his composure a little by getting more determined to strike the guy out then he gives up a home run. :P And how his "anger meter" goes up, and eventually I decided that I would describe all baseball games entirely in terms of meters.

And then I found the Google Chart API...

Tim Lincecum's Anger Level


Legend

normal
getting hot
the black fist of hate that grips his heart

[Edit: I love how Lincecum started walking off the field in the first inning before the throw to first for the out even happened. Confidence!]

Barry Zito

I guess he was due

Ugh, every time he seems to be out of it, Fourth Inning Zito shows up. I feel bad for him. But I did have fun at the game! It was good meeting rihani and arami. Man, I've known arami for 6 years and finally met her. Craziness! We all wandered about the Giants store and it's pretty much cleaned out of every single Lincecum T-shirt! Everyone loves Timmy. :)

We started out in the bleachers, then moved up to the upper deck (before Zito got yanked, hehe) so that they could get the view of the bay. I am awed by the beauty of the park every time I go. Also, I finally had the crab sandwich and it's crazy good.
