Windy City Snotrockets

 

Ivy + snotrockets = good times.

The San Francisco Giants were in Chicago this weekend to play the Cubs. Madison Bumgarner had a great game Saturday, with much good pitching, fury and plenty snotrocketing. It was all I could have ever asked for.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, September 3, 2016 on the road vs. the Chicago Cubs:

 

  • W, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 BB, 2 R, 2 ER, 10 K, 9 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 1 bullpen SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.

Unparalleled snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants finely crafted some of his art today for all to enjoy. In this snotrocket screencap the home plate umpire appears to be taking aim at something:

The erratic strike zone and a questionable balk call today brought about one of my favorites – MadBum fury. My G-rated interpretation of Bumgarner’s commentary:
