Let There Be Snotrockets


In the beginning Madison Bumgarner created the inning and the game. And the game was without mucus, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the baseball diamond. And the spirit of Bumgarner moved upon the face of the ballpark. And Bumgarner said, let there be snotrockets: and there were snotrockets. And Bumgarner saw the snotrockets, and they were good.

Finally we had snotrockets. FINALLY. After going through an 11 inning snotrocket (thru 3 games) drought Madison Bumgarner broke free of the nasal handcuffs and blew some snotrockets tonight. After the first 4 innings of tonight’s game went by and nary a snotrocket was seen I was a little concerned:



But then in the 5th inning



After the worst snotrocket drought ever witnessed Madison Bumgarner moistened up and let the secretions fly. I once again have a reason to live.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, July 22, 2016 on the road vs. the New York Yankees:


  • ND, 7.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 2 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 5th and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 163 snotrockets in the 2016 season.


Bumgarner’s nose drought over the past several games left @SanDiegoGiants with zero material to work with. In fact he was so desperate during Bumgarner’s last dry start that he screencapped a random body part:




But like the champ that he is Madison came through in tonight’s game and so did everyone’s favorite snotrocket screencapper. From the 5th inning:



In the 6th inning:



Aren’t they beautiful? [cries]

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Wednesday, July 27. 2016 at home vs. the Cincinnati Reds. See you here or on Twitter for all the snotrocket action.
