Throwing A Bunch Of Snotrockets At You

 

Don’t let the title of this post fool you – Madison Bumgarner still is not snotrocketing at his once fast and furious pace. For whatever reason Mr. Bumgarner has slowed his snotrocket pace to a crawl, leaving us with just a few paltry snotrockets per outing or (cries) no snotrockets at all. No, since there have been so few snotrockets of late that a separate blog post for each outing seemed pointless so instead I’ve decided to combine multiple starts in this one post.

 

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at home vs. the Chicago Cubs:

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 5 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 79 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Some screenshots from the game. I don’t remember if I made these or Bumgarner’s personal snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants did. I may have done one or two but to be honest I’m not really sure.  This is what happens when you wait over six weeks to complete a blog post (ETA: I went back and checked on Twitter and weirdly all of these are mine):

 

Bumgarner has been blowing so few snotrockets of late that I went back and re-watched the game in order to capture one of the few he has produced:

 

Sunday, July 28, 2019 on the road vs. the San Diego Padres:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st and the 5th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 81 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

So with these screencaps I’m 100% positive they’re mine because the Giants were in San Diego and Bumgarner’s personal snotrocket screencapper was in attendance at the game.

 

I like to think that this scoreboard fact happened because of my Bumgarner snotrocket obsession:

 

Saturday, August 3, 2019 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies:

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 2 HR, 2 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 1 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st and 4th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 83 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Bumgarner’s trusty snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants captured both halves of a double snotrocket:

 

While I got two very nice shots of Madison edged in gold:

 

Thursday, August 8, 2019 at home vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 3 SNR: 1 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st, 2nd and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 86 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

 

Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at home vs. the Oakland Athletics:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 1 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 1 snotrocket.
  • Bumgarner now with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

No snotrocket screencap but @SanDiegoGiants got this flurry of Bumgarner action:

 

Sunday, August 18, 2019 on the road vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:

  • L, 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were none of them since he blew no snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner still with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

So no snotrockets (sigh) but I did get two very nice glove chews and one contemplative Bumgarner shot:

 

While @SanDiegoGiants got this very nice irritated Bumgarner gif:

 

Saturday, August 24, 2019 on the road vs. the Oakland Athletics:

  • ND, 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 0 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 0 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was none of them since there were no snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner still with 87 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

The second start in a row with no snotrockets (cries) so again we are  deprived of snotrocket screencaps. To make up for the lack of MadBum mucus I did get some pretty nice glove chews and a Player’s Weekend shot of Bumgarner and Posey:

 

Friday, August 30, 2019 at home vs. the San Diego Padres:

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 7th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 91 snotrockets in the 2019 season.

 

Finally! Snotrockets! Plus some other assorted Bum goodies:

 

@SanDiegoGiants got this great gif of a mad MadBum striking out:

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be tomorrow, Wednesday, September 4, 2019 on the road vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
