Home Runs Vs. Snotrockets


The title of this blog post because:


As you might have guessed this 2010 start was a rough one for Madison Bumgarner. Pitching-wise, I mean. In snotrocket blowing Bumgarner was magnificent.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at home vs. the Cincinnati Reds:


  • ND, 2.2 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 3 HR, 12 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 5 other. 2 pre-game SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in which he blew 4 snotrockets in each of those innings.
  • Madison Bumgarner through 12 starts in 2010 had 124 snotrockets.


So there were lots of snotrockets but precious few snotrocket screencaps on account of 2010 fuzziness. If you’re okay with the fuzzy I still managed to screencap a few of them though. Here’s a snotrocket from the 1st inning:


Fuzzy snotrocket approach followed by a fuzzy snotrocket:


Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was also at home, a night game vs. the Rockies. I’ve got my fingers crossed that the 2010 snotrockets being at night will hopefully be fuzz-free unlike most of their daytime counterparts. I’ll probably live tweet them fuzzy or not so see you on Twitter or here for all the exciting vintage Bumgarner snotrocket action.
