Opening Day 2021 Snotrockets


I approached this year’s Opening Day with some apprehension. Madison Bumgarner had been steadily decreasing his snotrocket blowing for several years now, a trend that was disturbing. What did it mean? Had his nasal maladies (allergies? deviated septum?) been cured? Or, as I suspected, had someone “gotten” to him and told him that his snotrockets should be hidden from the public? Whatever the reason for the downward trend in snotrockets I needn’t have feared because in his first start of the 2021 season Bumgarner had returned to his old form:

No worries and we can relax. Bumgarner is blowing plenty of snotrockets again and all is right with the world.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vitals statistics for Thursday, April 1, 2021 on the road vs. the San Diego Padres:

  • ND, 4.0 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 2 HR, 10 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. L, 5 vs. R, 5 other. 1 at-bat SNR. 1 double SNR. 3 glove SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 2nd and 3rd in which he blew 4 snotrockets per inning.
  • Madison Bumgarner with 10 snotrockets so far in the 2021 season.

You know if there are snotrocket stats then there must be some snotrocket screencaps. Here is the first televised Madison Bumgarner snotrocket of the 2021 season, an at-bat one:


Here’s one of three glove snotrockets blown that day:


Later on in the game we got lucky and witnessed a classic Bumgarner double snotrocket. First up was the left nostril:


Followed by the right:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Wednesday, April 7, 2021 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.

2020 was the craziest of years so it’s a relief to see one thing return to normal. May Bumgarner’s plentiful snotrockets be a sign of better things to come.
