Sunday Snotrockets


Rest on Sunday? Not Madison Bumgarner. There’s a game to pitch. There’s snotrockets to be blown. Let’s get to it.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, May 4, 2014 on the road vs. the Atlanta Braves:

  • W, 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 19 SNR (snotrockets): 5 vs. lefties, 11 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 on-base SNR, 1 at-bat SNR, 2 double SNR.
  • Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 4th in which he blew 6 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner also had 2 innings (5th & 6th) in which he blew 5 snotrockets in each inning.
  • Today’s total of 19 snotrockets is the most that Madison Bumgarner has blown in a game since 4/5/14 (18 SNR at Dodgers).

Don’t worry, never fear, @SanDiegoGiants came through with some great snotrocket screencaps from today’s game:

I wish I could live tweet the snotrockets at every single one of Bumgarner’s snots starts. I try my very best to do this but occasionally I have other, less meaningful commitments (work, family functions) and I can’t watch the game live. Whenever this happens I always make sure to watch the game (and tweet snotrocket totals) later that same day , so as to not miss even one Bumgarner snotrocket and thus keep the snotrocket tallies as accurate as possible.

And that’s what occurred today. I wasn’t able to watch the game live on TV.  Then this happened on Twitter:



Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Friday, May 9, 2014 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eeuww). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
