Giants starting pitchers

And he did it with a broken (bobblehead) wrist!

I just commented on this ayrdaomei's LJ, but I'm really pleased that Matt Cain was awesome and nobody fucked him over! :D He was the starting pitcher at the first Giants game I ever went to, and the defense was really bumbling back then and so he had to strike out like 10 guys on his own to win the game. I also spent about 6 months having a HUGE poster of him on the next building staring me down in the office all day (his eyes followed me around everywhere).

What I'm trying to say is that he has a special place in my heart and he's the guy on the Giants I most enjoy seeing succeed. :)

Even the media writes about how he's always awesome, and then somehow gets stuck with losses or no-decisions:
He threw seven shutout innings against one of the most daunting lineups in baseball, delivering a performance that would guarantee a win for virtually any pitcher, except Matt Cain.
lastcatastrophe and I call this being "Cained".

And hey littlestclouds, in the same article, there's a Matt Morris reference!
"I think guys like Matt Morris worked with him and helped him be who he is today," Wilson said, then moved into the glowing phase. "And he's a man today."
I am kind of horrified that they talked about Wilson glowing and calling Matt Cain a man in the same paragraph. :(

Just got sucked into an article about Buster Posey. They played Take Me Out to the Ballgame at his wedding after they exchanged vows, ahahahaha! It was the bride's idea.

Also, if Aubrey Huff's rally thong is never mentioned again, I won't complain.

...I just read about Huff's rally thong. That is...special.

*weeps* The video interview crashed my Flash plugin, so terrifying is the idea of the rally thong. I like how Huff just flat out called Brian Wilson a nutjob.

I also spent about 6 months having a HUGE poster of him on the next building staring me down in the office all day (his eyes followed me around everywhere).

Lucky.

I'm glad to hear that, because I don't read the Bay Area press, I just listen to KNBR, and for being the Giants' flagship and all, the guys on there haven't given Matty near enough credit over the years.

I am kind of horrified that they talked about Wilson glowing and calling Matt Cain a man in the same paragraph. :(

lol, as well you should be. **shudder**

I also second you on Huff's unmentionable. Ugh.

CO-WORKER: So... what do you think of Matt Cain?
ME: I like him. Umm, why do you ask?
CO-WORKER: Oh, because they put up a big ass poster of him staring at you through the window.

Matt Cain

It's kind of difficult for them to pay attention to Matt Cain when Timmy is blinding your sights, I guess. :P

And hey littlestclouds, in the same article, there's a Matt Morris reference!

Hello, random Matty reference! :3

She sounds like a keeper, Buster! ;D

I love when they do geeky things like that. I think at Ehrhoff's wedding, people stood on either side of the aisle and held crossed hockey sticks over the heads of the bridal party!
