Not Centennial Snotrockets

 

Madison Bumgarner was well on his way to getting his 100th career victory tonight but an uncharacteristic 3 home runs given up by Bumgarner plus the 8,436th lead blown by the Giants bullpen this year resulted in another no-decision for Madison. All is well though because the Giants scored 3 in the top of the 10th inning and came away not only with a victory but tied for the NL Wild Card lead. Plus snotrockets! What a great night.

The San Francisco Giants were in San Diego to face the Padres. If you subtract the 3 home runs given up by Bumgarner (and I can do that this is my blog I can write whatever I want so there) then he pitched well and did leave the game with the lead. He also achieved this:

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, September 24, 2016 on the road vs. the San Diego Padres:

 

  • ND, 6.0 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 3 HR, 6 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. L, 4 vs. R, 1 other. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 2nd in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 224 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was at the ballpark for tonight’s game but unfortunately wasn’t able to capture any fresh live snotrockets. The night wasn’t a total loss though:

Exciting on base closeups because you know you want them. First ‘the pinch’:

And then ‘the hmm’:

Entertaining equipment adjustment:

There was an exciting moment when it was thought that a fresh live snotrocket may have been caught:

False alarm though:

The scoreboard’s ‘Fun Fact’ doesn’t surprise me at all:

Giants fans know where it’s at:

Reasonable request:

giants-bumgarner-snotrocket-2016-09-24-tweet-snotrocket-cam

 

Bumgarner hit 2 doubles in tonight’s game and also fouled a ball off his leg. He limped around for a little but it was really nothing:

giants-bumgarner-snotrocket-2016-09-24-tweet-cw-shins-oak

 

Besides the win and the Wild Card tie and the snotrockets this was my favorite aspect of tonight’s game:

True story:

giants-bumgarner-snotrocket-2016-09-24-tweet-hide-the-body

 

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Thursday, September 29, 2016 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies. Or it could be the next day vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew). Either one I’ll be here and on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.

Before I go – how cute is this? Baseball’s power couple:

Update – WE HAVE A SNOTROCKET

We are not worthy.

Don’t Look At My Snotrockets

 

I had another blog post all prepared where I wrote a couple of lighthearted remarks about the game but I deleted all of that after the 9th inning because I just don’t have the heart to post it now. The Giants bullpen blew yet another save opportunity in the 9th inning in Monday’s game and in doing so they threw away a beautifully pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Unforgivable. Also, Giants 3rd baseman Eduardo Núñez scratched and clawed and belly-flopped his way around the bases to score the Giants only run. And he scored that run on a wild pitch. So all that effort by Núñez and Bumgarner was wasted because the Giants bullpen just can’t get it done anymore. Giants manager Bruce Bochy can’t get it done anymore. His golden touch has turned to lead. The game that started out so wonderfully ended up a horrific nightmare that may take me years to recover from.  Prophetic tweet:

Hahahaha yeah right

Tension builds:

Then the bottom of the 9th inning happened. Twitter meltdown ensues:

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Monday, September 19, 2016 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew):

 

  • ND, 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 10 K, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 dugout SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 2nd, 5th and 6th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 218 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Fortunately for all of us Bumgarner snotrocket enthusiasts @SanDiegoGiants was hard at work during last night’s game, capturing snotrockets and tweeting them out. Snotrocket in the second inning:

Of course it wouldn’t be a Giants vs. Dodgers (ew) game without some blood boiling and tempers flaring. It started innocently enough with Yasiel Puig (ew) grounding out in the bottom of the 7th. Bumgarner fielded the ball, flipped it to Belt who made the out at 1st. No problem. Except there was:

You heard Bumgarner. Don’t look at him:

I can’t embed videos in this blog without paying exorbitant fees so if you want to see what happened click on these orange words for MLB’s official video of the incident.

Also do yourself a favor and click on this to hear Vin Scully’s description of the Bumgarner-Puig incident.

I just hope Bumgarner doesn’t shave his head:

One last thing:

Glum Snotrockets

 

The Giants played the Padres. The Giants lost to the Padres. Madison Bumgarner pitched. Madison Bumgarner blew snotrockets. That’s all I got. What a glum game. What a glum series. What a glum second half. GLUM I TELL YOU GLUM.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at home vs. the San Diego Padres:

 

  • L, 6.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 0 vs. righties, 2 other. 2 pre-game SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 214 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was on glum assignment and thus was not able to capture any glum snotrockets.

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Monday, Sept. 19, 2016 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. See you here or on Twitter for all the glum snotrocket action.

Insufficient Snotrockets

 

I don’t like it when Madison Bumgarner blows too few snotrockets. I also don’t like it when Madison Bumgarner gives up too many home runs. Both happened tonight but fortunately the Giants bats woke up and they scored just enough runs to nullify those DBacks homers. Giants bats could do nothing about the lack of snotrockets though.

The San Francisco Giants were in Arizona tonight to play the DBacks with Madison Bumgarner the starting pitcher for the Giants. Snotrocket conditions at the start of the game:

giants-bumgarner-snotrocket-2016-09-09-tweet-fl

 

A milestone moment on the line tonight:

giants-bumgarner-snotrocket-2016-09-09-tweet-sfgiants

 

You’ll get that 100th victory next time, Madison. And blow some celebratory snotrockets to boot.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, September 9, 2016 on the road vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:

 

  • ND, 6.0 IP, 6 H, 1 BB, 4 R, 4 ER, 9 K, 2 HR, 2 SNR: 0 vs. L, 1 vs. R, 1 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 211 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Unfortunately @SanDiegoGiants was on assignment for the only inning that Bumgarner blew his snotrockets but he did capture some marvelous loogies. In the 6th inning there were 2 Bumgarner loogies and both were captured.

Loogie #1:

Windy City Snotrockets

 

Ivy + snotrockets = good times.

The San Francisco Giants were in Chicago this weekend to play the Cubs. Madison Bumgarner had a great game Saturday, with much good pitching, fury and plenty snotrocketing. It was all I could have ever asked for.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, September 3, 2016 on the road vs. the Chicago Cubs:

 

  • W, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 BB, 2 R, 2 ER, 10 K, 9 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 3 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 1 bullpen SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Madison Bumgarner blew at least 1 snotrocket in every inning he pitched today.
  • Bumgarner now with 209 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Unparalleled snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants finely crafted some of his art today for all to enjoy. In this snotrocket screencap the home plate umpire appears to be taking aim at something:

Braves, Birds and Snotrockets

 

Items in blog post title not listed in order of importance.

Snotrockets were in the air. Birds were on the field. Giants bats were connecting with baseballs. All of the above came together in a magical mixture of excellence and another Bumgarner win.

The San Francisco Giants closed out their 3 game series at home against the Atlanta Braves today. Madison Bumgarner was on the mound. Some good luck charms were behind home plate:

Enough with the birds. Bring on the snotrockets.

With so few snotrockets being blown today industrious snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants had little material to work with but he made the most of what flew through the air. Top of the 3rd snotrocket:

A crowd-pleasing double snotrocket was blown in the top of the 5th inning. First the left nostril:

Later on Madison came up to bat with runners on base:

But no West Coast offense play was necessary as Bumgarner struck out. Sigh.

America’s premier snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants didn’t let yet another Giants loss affect him. He was hard at work tonight, capturing Bumgarner’s essence for all to treasure. Impressionistic snotrocket from the 1st inning:

Of Taters And Snotrockets

 

Madison Bumgarner won tonight. Madison Bumgarner hit another home run tonight. Madison Bumgarner blew snotrockets tonight. Madison Bumgarner was God tonight.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, August 18, 2016 at home vs. the New York Mets:

 

  • W, 5.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 double SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 191 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

For most of tonight’s game Bumgarner’s favorite snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was on assignment, causing mild panic in this snotrocket tallier. I mean, can you think of anything more boring than a snotrocket blog post with no snotrocket pics? Thankfully though he saved the day and captured some of Bumgarner’s proboscis production post-game. One snotrocket from the 3rd inning:

Doppelgänger Snotrockets

 

The San Francisco Giants played the Baltimore Orioles tonight so it was the Orange and Black vs. the Orange and Black. It could be a little confusing at first glance:

Also causing bewilderment for me – the Giants offense showed up for Bumgarner:

Giants-Bumgarner-Snotrocket-2016-08-13-Tweet-FL-1

 

I worried about the effect all those runs might have on Madison:

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, August 13, 2016 at home vs. the Baltimore Orioles:

 

  • W, 7.0 IP, 3 H, 3 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 8 K, 8 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 1 vs. righties, 6 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 2 at-bat SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 2nd and 4th in which he blew 2 snotrockets per inning.
  • Bumgarner now with 187 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Thank goodness @SanDiegoGiants wasn’t flabbergasted by the Giants actually producing runs for Bumgarner and was able to keep his cool and screencap some snotrockets from tonight’s game.  This first one is an illegal snotrocket since it wasn’t shown on television and thus cannot be included in today’s snotrocket tally. However I would never ignore a felonious Bumgarner snotrocket because they’re too beautiful to disregard:

During tonight’s TV broadcast of the game they showed the Bumgarner Lego statue at the ballpark and just the sight of it was enough to incite thoughts of vandalism for one Giants fan:

The San Francisco Giants were in Washington D.C. this weekend and today they closed out a 3 game series against the Nationals. Madison Bumgarner was on the mound and only one thing was on my mind:

As it turned out I had nothing to worry about. The snotrockets were flowing today. The runs however were not. Madison Bumgarner took yet another severely undeserved loss this afternoon. Bumgarner went the distance, giving up only 2 hits and 1 run. Unfortunately his teammates chose to show their appreciation for Madison’s magnificence by getting only 5 hits and scoring 0 runs. By my unscientific calculations that makes today the 873rd game this season that the Giants have managed to not score a single run in a Bumgarner start. Sad.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, August 7, 2016 on the road vs. the Washington Nationals:

 

  • L, 8.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 8 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 4 vs. righties, 4 other. 1 glove SNR. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st, 6th and 8th in which he blew 2 snotrockets per inning.
  • Madison Bumgarner now with 179 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Most always if there are Bumgarner snotrockets then there are Bumgarner snotrocket screencaps; today was no exception. To show his appreciation of Bumgarner’s excellence @SanDiegoGiants captured some of Bumgarner’s nasal masterpieces and shared them with the world. Glove snotrocket in the 1st inning:

With so few Bumgarner snotrockets being blown lately there’s been little opportunity for the special ones. That changed today when we got one of my personal favorites, the double snotrocket. First the left nostril:

And then the right nostril:

99 problems and a snotrocket ain’t one of them:

Bumgarner went the distance in today’s game. So too did his snotrockets. His teammates? Not so much:
