Of Taters And Snotrockets


Madison Bumgarner won tonight. Madison Bumgarner hit another home run tonight. Madison Bumgarner blew snotrockets tonight. Madison Bumgarner was God tonight.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, August 18, 2016 at home vs. the New York Mets:


  • W, 5.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 double SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 191 snotrockets in the 2016 season.


For most of tonight’s game Bumgarner’s favorite snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was on assignment, causing mild panic in this snotrocket tallier. I mean, can you think of anything more boring than a snotrocket blog post with no snotrocket pics? Thankfully though he saved the day and captured some of Bumgarner’s proboscis production post-game. One snotrocket from the 3rd inning:



And 2 minutes later in the same inning:



Because I can’t embed videos here unless I pay for the privilege of doing so and because it’s far too expensive for the privilege of doing so I can’t show you a video of Bumgarner’s home run but I can show you a very grainy gif of said home run, hit off of the Mets’ Jacob deGrom:
