Giants starting pitchers

Matt Cain is watching you

So last week while I was in the OC (bitch) Jenny told me that they put this 22 foot tall poster of Matt Cain on the wall of the building next to our office.

So now basically I have a giant (Giant?) poster of Matt Cain STARING DIRECTLY AT ME THROUGH MY WINDOW all day. Actually, he stares at you no matter where you are in the office. Jenny is creeped out.

It's also the best picture taken of him in history. I don't know if they experimented with 12 billion angles and then photoshopped the hell out of it, but he actually looks borderline attractive. I will take a photo tomorrow. :)

Zito pitched a really good game yesterday! He had 8 strikeouts, which is a lot for him, and he had a no hitter going into the 7th inning. But then, as the announcer said, with one pitch he lost the no hitter, the shutout and the lead cos' he gave up a 2 run homer. :P Cue to many disgusted expressions on Zito in the bottom of the 7th, haha. But then someone scored a run for him and he got the win. Perhaps he gave the mark of Cain (i.e. zero run support) back to Matty, who gave up only 1 run on Saturday yet didn't get the win.

Brian Wilson seems to be back to "normal". He's still awfully fond of the three and two count and sometimes goes wild but he's calmed down a lot and gets the outs that he needs.

So I guess I'm a Giants fan now. Or something. I thought the Bay Bridge series was going to be the test and I was rooting for the Giants in all three games. Losing Haren from the A's really broke my heart goddamnit!!! :P

I do love the park, though, and I love San Francisco, and San Francisco loves the Giants. I still have some issues with the team, I guess the wealth and pretentiousness, but you know, SF is kinda' wealthy and pretentious. I watched these boys grow up a little together and that always gets me. *sigh*

Hmm, this was supposed to just be a post about the fact that I now have Matt Cain watching me all day so I think I'll end here. :P

that's funny, 'cause that's how I always thought of you

No, no no! I raised her right! It was the franchise that failed her.

Well, that's understandable. You did the best you could **pats**

Ahh, you didn't know me when I loved the team deeply and then they traded Haren and CRUSHED MY HEART SO COMPLETELY I can't gaze upon them anymore without feeling pain.

(I'm mostly okay now)

Are we all recovering Athleticholics now? We should really have monthly meetings.

And not at the Coliseum, because I can't go there without falling in love a little bit again.

It's quite possible! We've all been hurt.

It's funny, I was just talking about this today and even though the SF park is super nice and the Coliseum is so ghetto, it's so much nicer to watch games there and it feels like home.

it's so much nicer to watch games there and it feels like home

Tell me about it! **sighs**

nobody puts bobby on the bench!

I can never call myself a Giants fan, but *I* was rooting for them most of the time. It all comes down to pitchers, respect, and pure rage at seeing Bobby on the bench.

Re: nobody puts bobby on the bench!

I'm still kind of uncomfortable with the label! But I do generally want the team to win, so I guess that makes me a fan?

Why the hell was he benched?

Re: nobody puts bobby on the bench!

He's always benched! Or playing first, or third, which is, like, God---when Swish started playing first, before he got pretty good at it. Just painful.

He's like Hannahan's back-up. And you know how much that pisses me off. And don't even get me started on Cabrera. UGH.

Re: nobody puts bobby on the bench!

All of that is just wrong. :(

Hey look, he has an at bat right now!

Re: nobody puts bobby on the bench!

OH, HE'S A BETTER PLAYER FOR IT BECAUSE HE'S NOT "JUST" A SHORTSTOP.

>:(

ps. That smiley could be either an angryface or Brian Williams.

But then, as the announcer said, with one pitch he lost the no hitter, the shutout and the lead cos' he gave up a 2 run homer. :P

That seems epically Zito-like.

ISN'T IT TOTALLY??? Imploding in the 4th or 5th would have been the quintessential Zito, though.

that could be a lolcat for Jenny.

Make a creepy one and leave it on her desk!

*giggle* She would probably be amused.

Actually, he stares at you no matter where you are in the office.

Aaaahhh! I used to have a wall calendar of Chinese pop stars like that. So fucking weird.

Oh well, I still love S.F., and at least the Giants are NL? :D MAZZARO WORLD WILL GET ITS REVENGE THIS TIME.

I was curious about this and googling revealed this explanation!

For some reason, the idea of your wall calendar of Chinese pop stars made me LOL. I guess I find C-pop inherently hilarious.

So I guess I'm a Giants fan now.

So I guess we are enemies now. :P

Haha, we already have rival hockey teams.
