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


getting hot
the black fist of hate that grips his heart


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
