My Giants weren’t able to get the sweep, but at least they were able to win the series. The Giants haven’t lost a series since they were swept in Los Angeles against the Dodgers on their first road trip. They have either split or won the last 9 series. These guys are fighting for every run they get. Some days they come out banging and others they come out and get get anyone to score. The Mets come into town today for a 4 game series. They have the same record as the Giants, but they are a team that’s expected to be a top team to make a run at the World Series. Different expectations for these 2 teams. It’s going to be a test for the Giants to see if they can hang with some tough teams. I will be at Friday night’s game. Tim Lincecum will be on the mound that night. It should be an exciting game to see him against the tough Mets hitters. One good thing for the Giants is that Carlos Delgado might be sitting out this series. I believe the Mets are thinking about possibly putting him on the DL.
I’m not going to be able to get to the game early for batting practice, so I won’t be able to take any cool pictures. =( I will be there a little before game time, and that means I’m going straight to the Garlic Fries line. Garlic fries and beer are for sure things on my list for tomorrow. Probably have to get a Giants Dog too. Tomorrow is my splurge day I guess. I have been eating really healthy for the past 4 days. I’m doing this P90X workout and eating good, so I can see results. One day here and there can’t hurt that much can it?
If any other bloggers are going to be at the game tomorrow night. Let me know, so I can look out for you. Maybe even let you buy me a beer or something. lol jk 😉

As I was thinking about what I would like to blog about today. I feel the ground shake a bit and think it’s someone walking by then it shakes a little more and it turns out we just had a little earthquake. This made me think back to our big earthquake in 1989. I was 9 years old and my dad had just dropped off my sister and I at home. We were just about to watch the start of game 3 of the World Series. It was the San Francisco Giants vs. Oakland A’s. The Bay Bridge Series. Well I know I didn’t care about the game once the earthquake hit. I remember the day October 17th 5:04pm. It was 6.9 on the moment magnitude scale (surface-wave magnitude 7.1). We ducked and got under the table and I just remember the ground was rolling under us. I would hate to have another one like that. I remember watching the news and seeing the Bay Bridge had a piece of the upper deck fall. I remember seeing players from both teams standing on the field. The Giants got swept by the A’s in that World Series and I just blame that on the earthquake. I need to have something to blame it on and that’s the only thing that makes me feel okay about that World Series loss. =) Our earthquake today was reported as 4.4. I think it’s the Baseball Gods trying to shake everything up for the NL West. Go Giants!
Here is a picture of the Bay Bridge.
