How about that huge guy sitting two rows behind home plate!? Clad in nothing but black and a Giants cap, the beloved Hutt must have irritated tv-bound Angelenos to no end as they watched him shake his hat at the centerfield camera in the 9th.
It’s one thing to get swept by the hated rivals from NorCal, but to get broomed while Mr. Chubs heckles all that is Dodgers has got to hurt. From my view, it looked tremendous.
Aside from our chubby buddy in the second row, the Giants made a statement themselves by sustaining their win streak (currently at 8) and vaulting themselves to the top of the National League Western Division.
Before tonight, they only hit .239 as a team. Pitching, however, has gotten them out of their 1-6 dismal beginning to ’07 as their starters have gone at least 5 innings in every start and Armando Benitez has miraculously posted 7 saves in 7 chances. Even though Benitez’s WHIP is far from cool (1.44 but falling in his last two appearances), the big guy with a pajama uniform has *cough, cough, gasp* done his job. (Weird.) The setup men have also shone since their implosion in Colorado 9 games ago.
What the deuce is going on here? I guess I shouldn’t ask but, rather, enjoy.
After my postings regarding the Dodgers hottest fan, Alyssa Milano, LA folks were quick to remind me that the Giants don’t have any hottie fans. True, but our corpulent comrade in the second row can eat your Dodger hotties like a bucket of McNuggets. Speaking of eating, I’m still waiting for Alyssa to get back to me regarding the dinner she owes me.
Now, the first place Giants head to the desert to face the Diamondbacks — a team with no real identity and 50 different uniforms (and all bad).
