A Touch Of Snotrockets


For this week’s stop on the Madison Bumgarner Vintage Snotrocket Tour we once again made our way to AT&T Park for a game against the San Diego Padres. Unfortunately even though the San Francisco Giants were at home the game was broadcast by Fox Sports so that meant (inferior) national broadcasters instead of our (superior) local ones. No matter. Bumgarner was pitching and so we had snotrockets to soothe and console us.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, August 14, 2010 at home vs. the San Diego Padres:


  • ND, 7 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 6 SNR (snotrockets): 2 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 4 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 7th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Madison Bumgarner through 10 starts in 2010 had 105 snotrockets.


Let’s start things off with a nice shot of Bumgarner intensity from this game:


That’s the nicest, clearest screencap of Madison Bumgarner that I was able to get from this broadcast. Every time I tried to screencap Bumgarner doing anything else he came out looking like something from a horror film. Now playing – The Faceless Creature from the Hillbilly Deluxe Lagoon:


Even the lone snotrocket screencap I was able to get was fuzzy-looking:


Oh well. Some snotrocket screencapping days are better than others.

Madison Bumgarner’s next 2010 start was on August 20 against the Cardinals in St. Louis. I’ll most likely live tweet that one when I watch it so see you on Twitter or here of course for all the exciting vintage Bumgarner snotrocket action.
