The Giants offense was hushed. Madison Bumgarner’s snotrockets were muted. It was like a library out there on the playing field in San Diego tonight. We need the loud cracking of Giants bats and a deafening amount of MadBum snotrockets to feel right again.

So with tonight’s loss the Giants are 1-5 to start off the season. After the game someone asked Bumgarner about optimism:
Attaboy Madison Bumgarner.
