Fifteen Chickens

Fans have long posted strings of the letter "K" to reflect their ace's rising strikeout total. It shows the world just how effective their hero is. A few years ago certain Giants fans reacted to baseball's latest fad, that of intentionally walking Barry Bonds, by hanging rubber chickens from a clothes line strung on the foul territory side of the right field wall, along with the number, each time a Giant was INTBB'd. An intentional walk to the 8th place hitter to bring up the pitcher the other night increased the season team total to fifteen at the half way point in the season.

Barry used to get that many in a homestand.
