The Giants are edging ever closer to another NL West championship. Madison Bumgarner is edging ever closer to setting a snotrocket record. Okay, that last one is pure speculation. I only started counting Bumgarner’s snotrockets in earnest this season (I’ve catalogued every single televised snotrocket that Bumgarner’s blown in each of his starts in 2012. Don’t judge me). Oh how I wish I had started tallying his snotrockets at the beginning of his MLB career. Missed opportunities. Sigh.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals from Monday’s game (09/17/12) at home vs. the Colorado Rockies:
- 8 SNR (snotrockets) ― 0 vs. L, 6 vs. R, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 4 SNR.
- Bumgarner’s 2012 season totals vs. the Rockies: 44 SNR ― 6 vs. lefties, 24 vs. righties, 14 other. 2 double, 1 at-bat and 1 pre-game SNR.
I found these excellent Bumgarner snotrocket gifs at the blog baycityball.com:
Bumgarner’s next start should be this Saturday, Sept. 22, at home, vs. the Padres. It’s scheduled as a night game (6:05 PM start). See you here or on Twitter.
