The San Francisco Giants faced the New York Mets tonight in the National League Wild Card game. As you can tell from all the tweets above Madison Bumgarner was his usual brilliant self in the post season and the Giants won 3-0 to advance to the NL Division Series, the 4th time in 7 years they’ve done so. Sometimes I forget to give my daily thanks for Bumgarner existing on this planet and pitching for the Giants and for this I should be made to suffer. Madison Bumgarner as a Giant deserves constant praise, worship, zero criticism and whenever he walks by people should be required by law to bow down or do this:

MLB doesn’t give out an MVP award for the Wild Card game but if they did of course Mr. Bumgarner would be a shoo-in (sorry Conor Gillaspie) for the honor tonight. Twitter doesn’t give out an MVP award for best Bumgarner snotrocket screencapper but if they did @SanDiegoGiants would run away with the thing (runner-up @iamjerklord). Scoreless snotrocket in the bottom of the 4th inning:
Still scoreless but a runner on 2nd and 1 out snotrocket:

Before Gillaspie hit a 3 run homer in the top of the 9th it had been a scoreless duel between Madison Bumgarner and the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard, leaving some to wonder how long the game might go on. No worries about Bumgarner though:
