You win some, you lose some, you no-decision some. Hopefully you blow a few snotrockets too.
The San Francisco Giants were in Miami today to play the Marlins. Madison Bumgarner was on the mound and I was on my laptop, ready to tally all the snotrockets that would surely be flowing today. Only they didn’t exactly flow; more like they trickled. It was not an abundant day for snotrockets.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Monday, June 11, 2018 on the road vs. the Miami Marlins (closed roof):
- ND, 5.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR, 1 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 1 other.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 5th in which he blew 1 snotrocket.
- Bumgarner now with 6 snotrockets in the 2018 season.
See what I meant by ‘trickled’? One snotrocket for the entire game is a paltry amount. Regardless of the meager amount of mucus blown we here at Bumgarner Snotrockets aim to always satisfy your snotrocket cravings so here are not one but two screencaps of the same snotrocket. First up is @iamjerklord’s screencap, taken from the right side:
While I managed to capture the left side of the same snotrocket:
Other Madison news: Mr. Bumgarner was not pleased with umpire Jeremie (Don’t Spell It Jeremy) Rehak’s work behind the plate tonight. Madison is not shy about demonstrating his feelings when it comes to calls that he feels he’s not getting on his pitches but tonight he seemed especially dissatisfied. I saw a crazy amount of animation from Bumgarner, more than I’ve ever seen from him. Thus you have the Puppy Head Tilt Edition:
Bumgarner decided to have a little chat with the home plate ump in between innings:
It looked like maybe Bum was trying to make nice with Rehak there but that didn’t last long:
After Bumgarner gave up a couple of runs in the bottom of the 6th inning Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled him from the game. As Bumgarner was walking towards the Giants dugout he could be seen mouthing a few words towards home plate:
Saying ‘blinking fertilizer’ to any umpire apparently results in an automatic ejection from the game, even if you’ve already been removed from said game by your manager. Bumgarner was very droll about his first career ejection:
Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Saturday, June 16, 2018 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eeuw). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
