Don’t Look At My Snotrockets

 

I had another blog post all prepared where I wrote a couple of lighthearted remarks about the game but I deleted all of that after the 9th inning because I just don’t have the heart to post it now. The Giants bullpen blew yet another save opportunity in the 9th inning in Monday’s game and in doing so they threw away a beautifully pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Unforgivable. Also, Giants 3rd baseman Eduardo Núñez scratched and clawed and belly-flopped his way around the bases to score the Giants only run. And he scored that run on a wild pitch. So all that effort by Núñez and Bumgarner was wasted because the Giants bullpen just can’t get it done anymore. Giants manager Bruce Bochy can’t get it done anymore. His golden touch has turned to lead. The game that started out so wonderfully ended up a horrific nightmare that may take me years to recover from.  Prophetic tweet:

Hahahaha yeah right

Tension builds:

Then the bottom of the 9th inning happened. Twitter meltdown ensues:

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Monday, September 19, 2016 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew):

 

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 10 K, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 dugout SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 2nd, 5th and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 218 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Fortunately for all of us Bumgarner snotrocket enthusiasts @SanDiegoGiants was hard at work during last night’s game, capturing snotrockets and tweeting them out. Snotrocket in the second inning:

Bonus Bumgarner screencap – his cup runneth over:

Of course it wouldn’t be a Giants vs. Dodgers (ew) game without some blood boiling and tempers flaring. It started innocently enough with Yasiel Puig (ew) grounding out in the bottom of the 7th. Bumgarner fielded the ball, flipped it to Belt who made the out at 1st. No problem. Except there was:

You heard Bumgarner. Don’t look at him:

I can’t embed videos in this blog without paying exorbitant fees so if you want to see what happened click on these orange words for MLB’s official video of the incident.

Also do yourself a favor and click on this to hear Vin Scully’s description of the Bumgarner-Puig incident.

I just hope Bumgarner doesn’t shave his head:

You heard what Bumgarner said, Puig. Why you still looking at him?

In this photo Puig is on the far left and Bumgarner in the middle of the crowd on the far right:

The above photo is especially noteworthy because:

This photo is the only thing I like about the Giants bullpen:

Of course I had no problem with any of this:

I need for this to happen:

Before I forget I wanted to include this incredible work of art. Giants fan @IAmJerklord made this a while ago but it came in handy during last night’s game. Saturn Bumgarner devouring Puig:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, September 24, 2016 on the road vs. the San Diego Padres. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
