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





Legend

fucked over by the offense, aka if Matt Cain wants a win, he'd better fucking pitch a shutout
fucked over by the bullpen, aka if Tim Hudson wants a win, he'd better fucking pitch a complete game





[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!]
