Sporadic Snotrockets


Tonight’s San Francisco Giants game had a weird vibe to it early on. Madison Bumgarner pitched well so that wasn’t it. The Giants had some great defensive plays so that wasn’t it either. So what had me feeling all hinky about tonight’s game?



Oh yeah.

It wasn’t just me either. Bumgarner’s mucus deficiency had everyone concerned:



Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, July 5, 2016 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies:


  • ND, 6.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 at-bat SNR. 1 on-base SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 6th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 153 snotrockets in the 2016 season.


Even though the snotrockets were incredibly few and far between everyone’s favorite snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants still managed to capture a beauty in the bottom of the 6th inning:



Bonus Bumgarner screencap: post wipe edition with a slight edit by me because Rockies catcher Nick Hundley kept jawing at Angel Pagan after Pagan struck out and also because Hundley’s face:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Sunday, July 10, 2016 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
