Snotrockets in Enemy Territory

 

Dodgers: beaten. Kershaw: defeated. Bumgarner: victorious. Snotrockets: blown. Dodger Stadium: toilet.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, April 28th, 2015 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eww):

  • W, 8.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 5 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 5 vs. righties, 0 other. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 8th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 21 snotrockets so far in the 2015 season.

As you can see from the above stats Bumgarner is still outputting fewer snotrockets than usual. How much fewer? Take a look at the following year by year comparison. Madison Bumgarner SNR (snotrocket) totals, 1st five games by season:

  • 2015: 21 SNR
  • 2014: 55 SNR
  • 2013: 61 SNR
  • 2012: 63 SNR

How to explain this? Did Bumgarner get his deviated septum fixed? Is someone slipping some Zyrtec into his morning coffee? Has the drought in California dried up Madison’s mucus as well? Stay tuned.

Even though the low amount of Bumgarner snotrockets in Tuesday’s game had us all a little down @SanDiegoGiants cheered everyone up with some winning snotrocket screencaps. Here’s the first one of the game:

Another closeup snotrocket, a real nose twister this time:

The rubber nose snotrockets are a bit disconcerting to some:

If you can’t see it here’s a lovely nose-bending snotrocket closeup:

There were so few snotrockets in Tuesday’s game that @SanDiegoGiants took to tweeting about Bumgarner’s hair:

Bumgarner’s hair this season looks to be even longer than it was last year, causing me to make this completely unverified statement:

One last thing: WHAT IN GOD’S NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY AND PURE IS THIS:

That is just…it’s…I…no. Just no. Stop it stop it right now.

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Monday, May 4. 2015 at home vs. the San Diego Padres. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
