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





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!]

sooo glad you had a good time :D

I think the Giants photographer guy has a crush on Lira.

Those charts crack my shit up!!

I am madly in love with Google Charts now.

**laughs** I was just remarking on Rowand's stance yesterday. WTF indeed.

But when he's about to swing he goes back to normal. How does a guy develop something so bizarre?

'the black fist of hate that grips his heart' I love it.

Lovingly stolen from one of the most scathing computer game reviews ever written!

which one? I mean my knowledge of games is that Ms PacMan is not where it is at.

Daikatana. I never played it myself, but basically during its development (and subsequent release), it was the equivalent of the badfic that everyone loves to hate. :P
