Wherefore Art Thou Snotrockets


Oh look it’s another “Giants lost, few snotrockets” post. Yay. I can never get enough of those.

It’s only the second week of the season and already I’m cranky and cynical. This is not good. That “3 World Series titles in five years” high didn’t last long. Or at least it lasted until the Giants slid right into a 7 game losing streak. Add to that the fact that Madison Bumgarner is apparently blowing fewer snotrockets this year (more on that later) and it totals up to one cranky Giants fan and snotrocket aficionado.

But on to more important matters. Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, April 16, 2015 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:


  • ND, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, 1 HBP, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 11 snotrockets so far in the 2015 season.


Even though there weren’t many snotrockets in last night’s game @SanDiegoGiants still managed to come up with some great snotrocket screencaps. From Bumgarner’s double snotrocket in the fifth inning here’s the left side:

And here’s the right side:

And the last snotrocket of the game:



There’s a mystery afoot, or anose, or whatever. Madison Bumgarner appears to be blowing fewer snotrockets this season, when compared to previous seasons. Giants fans took notice on Twitter:



Wherefore art thou snotrockets, Bumgarner? Bring back, oh bring back, bring back my snotrockets to meeeee…yeah okay I’ll stop now.

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at home vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eeuww). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
