Fear The Snotrockets


I did something terrible tonight. Something that I’ve never done before and I feel very guilty about:



But what was a Bumgarner/Walking Dead/Fear the Walking Dead fan to do? I follow so many Dead accounts on Twitter that there was no way I could mute them all and avoid spoilers. I knew that I could watch the Giants game after watching FearTWD (and okay I also watched the premiere of  AMC’s new show Preacher and it kicked ass too) and tally the snotrockets later. I still felt bad though about not watching Bumgarner’s start live. I blame ESPN and their Sunday 5:05 PM start, which actually started at 5:07 PM not that you would know if you were watching the game on TV:



Let us move on from dead and preaching and go right to the snotrockets. Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, May 22, 2016 at home vs. the Chicago Cubs:


  • W, 7.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 15 SNR (snotrockets): 2 vs. lefties, 10 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 1 glove SNR. 1 at-bat SNR. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 94 snotrockets in the 2016 season.


One person who didn’t abandon Madison Bumgarner in his snotrocket revelry was @SanDiegoGiants. He stuck with Bumgarner for the rest of the game and got some great snotrocket screencaps while doing so. First snotrocket screencapped was a double one. The right nostril comes first:



And then the left nostril:

1-0 snotrocket in the top of the 6th:



Top of the 7th snotrocket (also please take note of what Buster Posey is doing at home plate. That boy’s all catcher all the time):



One last snotrocket screencap of the game in the top of the 8th:



It would be remiss of me not to mention that Bumgarner drove in the game’s only run himself. Pitch, hit, blow a snotrocket or fifteen of them…Madison Bumgarner can do it all:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, May 28, 2016. See you hear or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket actions.
