4 for 5


So I went to 5 Giants games in 5 days.

Giants tickets

Pretty crazy, but I think all of you probably know that by now. :P The Giants won 4 of the 5 games I went to, so I'd say I got my money's worth. The best game was tonight's game. Zito was really really really good. I thought he was better today than Lincecum was yesterday, and Timmy went 8 scoreless innings with 8 strikeouts. Zito did give up a home run in the 9th in pursuit of the complete game shutout, but I still thought that he looked better.

The crowd was chanting his name in the 9th, and kept going for a while even after he was pulled from the game. He came out of the dugout to wave his cap just after the chants mostly died down. I admit that I got a little weepy. I caught the highlights and apparently he was sitting in the dugout looking creepy and intense, then surprised when Bochy asked him to go wave at the fans. He mouthed "thank you" when he went out there. :)

I did not buy tickets for tomorrow's game. They were pretty pricey ($25 for standing room only? No thanks) because it's Randy Johnson bobblehead day, and I really don't care to have his bobblehead. The offense will probably screw Matt Cain over anyway since they didn't screw Zito over today and the Rockies should be very motivated after losing 4 in a row.

That's awesome. I love baseball.

I'm bummed that I'll be missing the Sox here in Tampa next week. I just don't have the money and they are all weeknight games. By the time I drove from Tampa to St. Pete and dealt with the St. Pete police's effed up traffic routing for parking, it would probably be the fourth inning.

I'll just wait. Fenway spoiled me back in May. :)

Yeah, part of the reason why I've gone to so many Giants games is that the park is only a 15 minute walk from my office. I walk from/to home sometimes too, depending on how tired I am, and if not, I can just take the bus, so no messing around with parking.

It is a MESS at the Trop. When I've gone with people before, they got there an hour before the game and were sitting in traffic being routed around for two hours.

I went to a Sunday afternoon game there a few months ago when the Sox were in town and I got to the game over two hours early just to park in the lot right by the stadium to avoid all of that.
