Matt at AT&T Yesterday

I love it how things have a way of just working out.  As a part of getting my visa approved to work in Korea, I had to make a trip out to San Francisco Wednesday morning.  It occurred to me late Tuesday night that the Rockies were there too, so my last Rockies game ended up being at AT&T Park. 

Ended up the same way as the last game I went to at Coors (stupid bullpen), but I've got a ton of pictures, so let's get to 'em...

How's that Bullpen treating you there?

They've got a pretty awesome statue of Willie McCovey overlooking the cove out there.  I'll give them this, the view from this stadium are slightly alright.  K, they're fantastic.

Yeah, those aren't too bad.  Here's the inside views:

That last one is the view from my seat.  I picked out a spot right in front the Rockies Bullpen there.  Made for some decent shots during warmups...

Little known fact about Todd... he warms up by doing Irish jigs.  I didn't know that until I snapped the picture.

Unfortunately, I was completely out of it by this point.  I was running on about a hour of sleep... so I ended up not taking a lot of pictures during the game.  I snapped out of it just long enough to get a quick snapshot of Herrera's first AB:

They've got one hell of a scoreboard out there.  That thing has got to be one of the clearest things I've ever seen.

As for the game, same problems as usual.  We just could not get a hit with a runner in scoring position.  The Giants did have a great play by Lewis in left to keep the lead, but the biggest play of the game was a very small one.

Bottom of the 6th, U-Ball walks Lewis to start off the inning.  He then quickly gets a chopper to 2nd, Herrera then charges the ball needlessly... catching the ball off balance with his momentum taking him out of the basepath.  He reaches back to try and tag Lewis, misses and throws to 1st to get Velez.  A small play, but not when Winn softly lines a pitch into center to score Lewis.

I'll tell you, a major league 2nd baseman waits on that ball another split second, quickly flips that to Barmes and at least gets the lead runner, maybe gets a double play.  Instead, the Giants tie the game, U-Ball gets pulled, Speier hangs a slider, and I'm left with this sign to cheer me up afterwards:

I almost had to give that guy a dollar just for standing outside the stadium with that sign.
