A Pair Of Snotrockets

 

This will be another two for one snotrocket blog post, as Madison Bumgarner had yet another outing where he went snotrocket-less. So instead of creating a separate blog post just to say “hey no snot” I’m again doubling up on a post and including two starts here instead of just one.

 

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 on the road vs. the St. Louis Cardinals:

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was none of them since he blew no snotrockets.
  • Madison Bumgarner still with 91 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Monday, September 9, 2019 at home vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates:

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. L, 1 vs. R, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 7th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 95 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Saturday, September 14, 2019 at home vs. the Florida Marlins. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.

Throwing A Bunch Of Snotrockets At You

 

Don’t let the title of this post fool you – Madison Bumgarner still is not snotrocketing at his once fast and furious pace. For whatever reason Mr. Bumgarner has slowed his snotrocket pace to a crawl, leaving us with just a few paltry snotrockets per outing or (cries) no snotrockets at all. No, since there have been so few snotrockets of late that a separate blog post for each outing seemed pointless so instead I’ve decided to combine multiple starts in this one post.

 

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at home vs. the Chicago Cubs:

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 5 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 79 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Some screenshots from the game. I don’t remember if I made these or Bumgarner’s personal snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants did. I may have done one or two but to be honest I’m not really sure.  This is what happens when you wait over six weeks to complete a blog post (ETA: I went back and checked on Twitter and weirdly all of these are mine):

 

Bumgarner has been blowing so few snotrockets of late that I went back and re-watched the game in order to capture one of the few he has produced:

 

Sunday, July 28, 2019 on the road vs. the San Diego Padres:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st and the 5th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 81 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

So with these screencaps I’m 100% positive they’re mine because the Giants were in San Diego and Bumgarner’s personal snotrocket screencapper was in attendance at the game.

 

I like to think that this scoreboard fact happened because of my Bumgarner snotrocket obsession:

 

Saturday, August 3, 2019 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies:

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 2 HR, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 1 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st and 4th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 83 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Bumgarner’s trusty snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants captured both halves of a double snotrocket:

 

While I got two very nice shots of Madison edged in gold:

 

Thursday, August 8, 2019 at home vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 3 SNR: 1 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st, 2nd and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 86 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

 

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at home vs. the Oakland Athletics:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 1 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 1 snotrocket.
  • Bumgarner now with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

No snotrocket screencap but @SanDiegoGiants got this flurry of Bumgarner action:

 

Sunday, August 18, 2019 on the road vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:

  • L, 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were none of them since he blew no snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner still with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

So no snotrockets (sigh) but I did get two very nice glove chews and one contemplative Bumgarner shot:

 

While @SanDiegoGiants got this very nice irritated Bumgarner gif:

 

Saturday, August 24, 2019 on the road vs. the Oakland Athletics:

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was none of them since there were no snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner still with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

The second start in a row with no snotrockets (cries) so again we are  deprived of snotrocket screencaps. To make up for the lack of MadBum mucus I did get some pretty nice glove chews and a Player’s Weekend shot of Bumgarner and Posey:

 

Friday, August 30, 2019 at home vs. the San Diego Padres:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 7th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 91 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Finally! Snotrockets! Plus some other assorted Bum goodies:

 

@SanDiegoGiants got this great gif of a mad MadBum striking out:

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be tomorrow, Wednesday, September 4, 2019 on the road vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.

Thrice Snotrockets

 

The good news is that Madison Bumgarner blew more snotrockets in this start than in his previous one. The bad news is that Bumgarner is still not snotrocketing at his usual pace. What has happened to the mucus, Madison?

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, July 18, 2019 at home vs. the New York Mets:

 

  • ND, 9.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 74 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Yes there were snotrockets in the game but they were all at a distance so they wouldn’t make for very good screencaps unfortunately. But we did get this very nice Bumgarner gif made by @SanDiegoGiants which may provide a clue as to the disappearing snotrockets:

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was on Tuesday July 22 at home vs. the Chicago Cubs. Meet me back her for that one or you can always join me on Twitter for all the hot live Bumgarner snotrocket action. See you again soon.

Bien Descansado Snotrockets

 

So the July 13th game was a loss for the San Francisco Giants and a loss for snotrocket lovers as there was precious little mucus in the game. No es bueno.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, July 13, 2019 on the road vs. the Milwaukee Brewers:

 

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 1 snotrocket.
  • Bumgarner now with 71 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Even though there was only one Bumgarner snotrocket in the game pro that he is @SanDiegoGiants managed to capture it and in a foreign language too:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was on Thursday, July 18 vs. the Mets. See you back here soon for some more snotrocket goodness. You can also catch me on Twitter where I always live tweet Bumgarner’s starts. Come stop by sometime, okay? You’ll be glad you did.

Curtailed Snotrockets

 

Yet another game where Madison Bumgarner didn’t blow a single snotrocket but at least this time he had an excuse. Bumgarner was taken out of the game after only going 2 innings because he was hit on his left arm by a comebacker (don’t worry, he’s fine). So it was a very short outing for Mr. Bumgarner. The lack of mucus is understood.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, July 6, 2019 at home vs. the St. Louis Cardinals:

 

  • ND, 2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 0 SNR (snotrockets).
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was none of them since there were no snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner still with 70 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

So no snotrockets of course means no snotrocket screencaps but Bumgarner’s premiere snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants still found some nice Madison moments for us. From the top of the 1st:

 

With so few snotrockets being blown by Bumgarner these days I often have to find other things to tally:

 

I caught a few moments too, like right after Bumgarner got hit on the arm:

 

And then in the dugout afterwards:

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was on Saturday July 13, 2019 on the road vs. the Milwaukee Brewers. See you back here for the snotrocket recap (snotcap?) on that one soon. In the meantime you can always catch me on Twitter where I usually live tweet most Giants games. Snot you later.

Two For One Snotrockets

 

Madison Bumgarner still isn’t snotrocketing at his usual pace. I’m concerned. And sad. I miss the snot. I’m sure you do too. I don’t know what’s going on. I guess we just have to be patient and wait for more mucus to appear.

 

Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies:

  • W, 6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 11 K, 1 HR, 1 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 1 other. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 4th in which he blew 1 snotrocket.
  • Bumgarner now with 68 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

 

Sunday, June 30, 2019 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB 9 K, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 6th and 7th in which he blew 1 snotrocket in each inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 70 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Saturday, July 6, 2019 at home vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.

Nought Snotrockets

 

A Giants loss. A Dodgers (ew) win. No snotrockets. A terrible night.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, June 20, 2019 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew):

 

  • L, 3.2 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets).
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 67 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

I have only one thing to say about last night’s game:
