Barry Zito

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.

Oh man, I was dying on Friday cos' between not falling asleep until 2:30, my roomie loudly clanking silverware at 4 AM when she was eating uhh... dinner? and the alarm clock echoing loudly around my alley for 2 hours, I only got about 4-5 hours sleep.

It was a fun experience, I don't think I'll ever do it again. :P

You know, I think he's gotten even more creepy and intense since coming to SF.
