Double Double Snotrockets


No, this post isn’t about hamburgers with snot sauce and grilled onions. With a side order of animal snot fries and a large snot shake. Okay I’ll stop now because I’m making myself sick.

Madison Bumgarner had another one of those increasingly familiar games in which he pitched well but his teammates scored poorly and he received another no-decision. At least it wasn’t a loss. But it was a dismal game whose only redeeming quality were the snotrockets.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at home vs. the Houston Astros:


  • ND, 7.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 2 other. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 5th and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 46 snotrockets in the 2018 season.


We had good and bad in regards to snotrockets this time out. The good? Two double snotrockets. The bad? Only two snotrockets. Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket production has been slowly but surely declining in the past couple of years. A troubling sign that I hope changes soon.

I guess we should be grateful for what we did get. Two snotrockets is better than none at all, right? Right. Here’s the first double snotrocket set, blown in the 5th inning. First up is the left nostril:

Then the right nostril:


In the 6th inning Bumgarner followed the same pattern, double snotrocket-wise. The left nostril first:

Then the right nostril, partially obstructed view:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start is Monday, August 13, 2018 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
