Brewing Up Some Snotrockets

 

Giants swept the Brewers, Madison Bumgarner won and there were snotrockets. Who could ask for anything more?

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, August 31, 2014 at home vs. the Milwaukee Brewers:

 

  • W, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 12 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 10 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 1 at-bat SNR. 2 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 362 snotrockets so far in 2014.

 

Unfortunately snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was on assignment and unavailable to screencap. However he did come up with an artist’s interpretation of one of Bumgarner’s snotrockets:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014 on the road vs. the Detroit Tigers. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.

Almost Perfect Snotrockets

 

One hit. One lousy double separated Madison Bumgarner from perfection. Oh well. It’s all right Bumgarner, you’re still perfect in Giants fans’ eyes.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies:

 

  • W, 9.0 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 16 SNR (snotrockets): 3 vs. lefties, 7 vs. righties, 6 other. 3 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st and 9th in which he blew 3 snotrockets per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 64 snotrockets vs. the Rockies and 350 snotrockets overall in 2014.

 

On Twitter tonight  @SanDiegoGiants kept his perfect streak going with another excellent set of snotrocket screencaps. Here’s one from the third inning:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-26-1

 

In the fifth inning @SanDiegoGiants noticed that Bumgarner had more than snotrockets on his mind:

However Madison Bumgarner never strays too far from the best of his talents:

A close-up snotrocket also from the 6th inning:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-26-3

 

Bumgarner still had a perfect game going in the 7th inning. But even though his fans were nervous Bumgarner kept his cool and also kept the snotrockets coming:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-26-4

 

But alas it was not to be. Madison Bumgarner gave up the only hit the Rockies got in the game during the 8th inning. Right before that dastardly double though Bumgarner relieved the tension with another snotrocket:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-26-5-Tweet

 

And in the 9th, after his 100th pitch of the game, Madison Bumgarner calls it a night with one last snotrocket:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-26-6

 

Attaboy and well done, Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner’s next start should be this Sunday, August 31, 2014 at home vs. the Milwaukee Brewers. See you here or on Twitter (I live tweet the Bumgarner snotrockets) for all the exciting snotrocket action.

Big Shoulder Snotrockets

 

Tweets-FL-Bumgarner-Snotrocketer for the world

 

Madison Bumgarner had a fine game in Chicago tonight. Even though he gave up 2 home runs in the 1st inning he settled in nicely, shutting the Cubs out for the rest of his outing and collecting another win. Attaboy Bumgarner.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, August 21, 2014 on the road vs. the Chicago Cubs:

 

  • W, 7.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 12 K, 2 HR, 8 SNR (snotrockets): 3 vs. lefties, 3 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 at-bat SNR. 4 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 6th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 334 snotrockets in 2014.

 

So there weren’t a lot of snotrockets in tonight’s game but that didn’t matter to Bumgarner screencapper @SanDiegoGiants. He still got some great captures with a little Chi-town taste. I love the tarp reference that went with the snotrocket in the 2nd inning:

One snotrocket from the 5th inning, with another relevant comment:

The Windy City screencaps continue, this time in the 6th:

One more Chi-town snotrocket screencap, also in the 6th inning:

@SanDiegoGiants was really on a Chicago roll but of course I had to go and screw it up. C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER:

Orange Friday Snotrockets

 

I’m not a fan of the Giants home Friday orange jerseys. I like the color orange but as an accent color only.  The Giants regular uniform colors (home cream and road grey) are very simple and classy. No need to mess with perfection. I only bring this up because I’m running out of snotrocket post titles and had to put something up there.

Madison Bumgarner pitched well tonight and in fact left the game with a 2 run lead but the Giants bullpen let him down and gave up 4 runs, sticking Bumgarner with a no-decision. As I’m writing this now they’re in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Giants are trailing the Phillies 5-3.  [Update: Giants lost. Boo hiss]

But on to happier things. Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, August 15, 2014 at home vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:

 

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 14 SNR (snotrockets): 4 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 4 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 2 double SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 32 snotrockets vs. the Phillies and 326 snotrockets overall in 2014.

 

For your snotrocket viewing pleasure @SanDiegoGiants produced some gifs and a screencap from tonight’s game. But for some reason his gifs came out like videos and I can’t upload videos here without upgrading this blog which means spending money which means forget it. But here’s some links to the snotrocket gifs so you won’t miss out:

Royal Snotrockets

 

Giants-Bumgarner-Sticker-Crown

 

No not that kind of royal. But any excuse to use that photo.

Last night the San Francisco Giants were in Kansas City to play the Royals. It wasn’t pretty. Except for Bumgarner’s snotrockets. They’re always a work of art, right? Damn straight.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, August 8, 2014 on the road vs. the Kansas City Royals:

 

 

  • L, 8.0 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 11 SNR (snotrockets): 3 vs. lefties, 7 vs. righties, 1 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 8th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 312 SNR (snotrockets) in 2014, already surpassing his 2013 total of 304 SNR.

 

Even when Bumgarner takes a loss all is not lost because thanks to @SanDiegoGiants we have snotrocket screencaps to take the sting away. Here’s one from the second inning:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2014-08-08

 

And one from the 6th inning:

Metropolitan Snotrockets

 

 

Madison Bumgarner in the Big Apple, striking out batters, pitching scoreless innings and blowing snotrockets. The Mets: peeled and cored.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, August 3, 2014 on the road vs. the New York Mets:

The snotrocket screencapper artiste known as @SanDiegoGiants produced some snotrocket portraits that I’m sure you will enjoy. Here’s one from the 6th inning:

Flat Snotrockets

 

The San Francisco Giants were flat last night, only mustering up 4 hits and losing to the Pirates 5-0. Madison Bumgarner was also flat, giving up 4 runs in a long and horrible 1st inning. Even the snotrockets refused to perk up and were flat as well, with nary a double or at-bat snotrocket to dazzle the fans. Flat as a pancake. Sigh.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Monday, July 28, 2014 at home vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates:

 

  • L, 4.0 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 HR, 11 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 8 vs. righties, 3 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 7 snotrockets.
  • The 7 snotrockets that Madison Bumgarner blew in the 1st inning were the most that Bumgarner has blown in one inning since April 5, 2014 (7 in 7th inning on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers).
  • Bumgarner now with 286 snotrockets in the 2014 season.

 

Even though last night’s snotrockets were pretty routine a true Bumgarner snotrocket fan will always enjoy a good snotrocket screencap. In the midst of last night’s listlessness  @SanDiegoGiants still managed to get some great screencaps so all was not lost. Here’s a rather placid snotrocket from that violent first inning. Note the delicate placement of finger against nose. Truly a snotrocket artist.

No matter how uninspiring a Giants game might be the snotrockets will keep us coming back for more. Because regardless of how he pitches Madison Bumgarner will always be the snotrocket king:

Soggy Snotrockets

 

The San Francisco Giants were in Philadelphia Wednesday night. Also in Philly last night: a 59 minute non-rain rain delay, then some actual rain but no rain delay, some lightning

Giants-2014-07-23-vs Phillies-Lightning

 

and a whole lot of snotrockets.  Plus a fabulously pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Plus a Giants win. But the snotrockets, you say. What about the snotrockets? Of course. Here we go.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, July 23, 2014 on the road vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:

  • Madison Bumgarner now with 275 snotrockets in this 2014 season.

 

The world’s record holder for most awesome Bumgarner snotrocket screencaps, @SanDiegoGiants, produced some rainy day winners last night. Settle in and enjoy, you’re going to be here a while,  because like I mentioned earlier Bumgarner produced a metric ton of mucus in last night’s game. Bonus: Giants catcher Buster Posey made a special guest appearance in several snotrocket screencaps. Here are Bumgarner and Posey and a snotrocket in the 2nd inning:

And another one immediately afterward:

A solo snotrocket also in the 2nd, after pitching a scoreless inning:

Would a little rain affect Madison Bumgarner’s dedication to the job of snotrocketing? I think not:

An at-bat snotrocket in the 5th inning:

Bumgarner was busy in the 8th, with runners on base and snotrockets in the air:

Even though it was a stressful inning Madison Bumgarner’s the best and he always finds the time to snotrocket:

The last snotrocket of the game was again witnessed by Buster Posey:
