Soggy Snotrockets


The San Francisco Giants were in Philadelphia Wednesday night. Also in Philly last night: a 59 minute non-rain rain delay, then some actual rain but no rain delay, some lightning

and a whole lot of snotrockets.  Plus a fabulously pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Plus a Giants win. But the snotrockets, you say. What about the snotrockets? Of course. Here we go.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, July 23, 2014 on the road vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:


  • W, 8.0 IP, 5 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 6 K, 18 SNR (snotrockets): 4 vs. lefties, 5 vs. righties, 9 other. 5 double SNR. 1 at-bat SNR. 3 mound visit SNRs with catcher Buster Posey in attendance.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 8th in which he blew 6 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner’s 18 SNR (snotrockets) in tonight’s game is his highest total of snotrockets blown since 05/25/14 (19 SNR vs. the Minnesota Twins).
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 275 snotrockets in this 2014 season.


The world’s record holder for most awesome Bumgarner snotrocket screencaps, @SanDiegoGiants, produced some rainy day winners last night. Settle in and enjoy, you’re going to be here a while,  because like I mentioned earlier Bumgarner produced a metric ton of mucus in last night’s game. Bonus: Giants catcher Buster Posey made a special guest appearance in several snotrocket screencaps. Here are Bumgarner and Posey and a snotrocket in the 2nd inning:



And another one immediately afterward:

Would a little rain affect Madison Bumgarner’s dedication to the job of snotrocketing? I think not:

Even though it was a stressful inning Madison Bumgarner’s the best and he always finds the time to snotrocket:



The last snotrocket of the game was again witnessed by Buster Posey:



Bonus screencap: Bumgarner found a new place to wear his glove:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Monday, July 28, 2014 at home vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates. See you here or on Twitter (I live tweet the Bumgarner snotrockets) for all the exciting snotrocket action.
