Hybrid And Other Snotrockets

 

Another Madison Bumgarner outstanding pitching performance, another Madison Bumgarner snotrocketing achievement. I could get used to so much greatness.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at home vs. the Miami Marlins:

 

  • W, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 0 HR, 17 SNR (snotrockets): 3 vs. lefties, 9 vs. righties, 5 other. 1 double SNR. 1 hybrid SNR. 4 ½ glove SNR. 2 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 3rd and 6th in which he blew 4 snotrockets per inning.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s total of 17 snotrockets in this game is his highest total since March 27, 2019 (14 snot rockets – Giants at Padres).
  • Bumgarner blew at least 1 snotrocket in every inning he pitched (7 innings).
  • Bumgarner now with 90 snotrockets in the 2021 season.

 

Bumgarner’s start last night saw the birth of a new snotrocket statistic:

 

To the best of my knowledge Madison Bumgarner has never blown a half glove, half regular snotrocket before. I was so surprised when I first saw it last night that I had no idea how to classify it. Should I put it in the double snotrocket category? Should I create a whole new category of snotrocket stat? Do I call it a glove snotrocket? After much pondering I finally decided to do all three. Of course I had to get screenshots of this brand new kind of snotrocket but it wasn’t easy. This one wasn’t shown close up but at a distance, shot from behind home plate and looking out towards the pitching mound. So the quality isn’t the best but it’s better than nothing. First up is the left nostril, glove half of the hybrid snotrocket:

 

Next is the right nostril, bare hand half:

 

Look at that. Dazzling, isn’t it? I felt honored and grateful to be a witness to such a momentous event. And now you can say the same thing.

More snotrocket screenshots. First up is a classic one from the 2nd inning:

 

Another snotrocket from the mid 2nd:

 

Long distance snotrocket from the 3rd inning:

 

Another long distance one from the 4th inning:

 

A nice glove snotrocket from the 6th inning:

 

At-bat snotrocket also from the 6th inning:

 

Another snotrocket from the same at-bat:

 

The last snotrocket of the night was a glove snotrocket in the 7th inning:

 

Something pretty funny happened in last night’s game. During one of Madison Bumgarner’s at-bats a banner ad for a law firm appeared on screen and for reasons well known to anyone familiar with Bumgarner’s history it seemed, er, appropriate:

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Sunday, May 16, 2021 at home vs. the Washington Nationals. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
