High Plains Snotrockets


Another  San Francisco Giants game at The House of Horrors Coors Field in Denver, home of the Colorado Rockies and of nightmares. It seems like every game there something freakish happens. Nothing is normal at Coors Field. Every win is strange and every loss bizarre. Never ordinary, always weird. Or as one fan put it:

Madison Bumgarner on the mound today in Denver and it was a pretty standard outing for him. Bumgarner pitched well and produced snotrockets. We can’t ever ask for more. I mean, we got more (can you say two 3 run homers by Buster “MVP” Posey? I think you can) but as long as Bumgarner’s blowing snotrockets I’m happy.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, May 28, 2016 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies:


  • ND, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 0 HR, 7 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 4 vs. righties, 2 other. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 5th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Madison Bumgarner blew his 100th snotrocket of the season at 2:36 PM. It was a double.
  • Bumgarner now with 101 snotrockets in the 2016 season.


Nothing freakish or strange today about @SanDiegoGiants’s snotrocket screencaps. They were their usual great selves, just like Bumgarner’s snotrockets, full of mucus and goodness and I don’t know, DNA? There’s no DNA in screencaps but is there DNA in mucus? If we caught a snotrocket could we grow another Bumgarner? Something to ponder. But I digress; on to the screencaps. First snotrocket screencap of the day was a double. The left nostril:



The right nostril:



Snotrocket with a little extra something on it:



Extreme snotrocket closeup:



Bumgarner’s pitching and snotrocketing were on point:



A 5th inning snotrocket from the centerfield camera which as @SanDiegoGiants noted was a little far away:



The bottom of the 5th also saw another double snotrocket. First the left nostril:



And then the right nostril:



Now for some bonus Bumgarner screencaps.  Loogie edition:

Sometimes I worry about all the attention we pay to Bumgarner’s, er, action on the field:
