Madison Bumgarner is back to October Bumgarner

Madison Bumgarner has been having quite a month of August. He’s posted a 53:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio while allowing only six earned runs in 37.2 innings, and he’s looked almost as unhittable as he did last October, when he relentlessly took the ball for the Giants in high pressure situations during the playoffs. That’s not a coincidence, it turns out, as Bumgarner is currently...

Should batting receive consideration in Cy Young voting?

10 days ago, I was informed that I will be voting for the National League Cy Young Award this year. This will be my first time voting on the pitcher awards — last year, I was tasked with voting for Manager of the Year and MVP — and so I’ve spent the last week and a half trying to work through what kind of factors I’m going to want to consider in putting my ballot together...

The Wind Up: Cruising Down Madison Avenue

Madison Bumgarner is Rolling Can't beat him on the mound, can't beat him at the plate—the San Francisco Giants ace is returning to the form that made him unstoppable in the final months of 2014, not to mention the entire postseason.

Ranking All 4 Of Madison Bumgarner’s 2015 Home Runs

Madison Bumgarner probably isn’t a real person — at least that’s what the kids will think when I’m in my mid-70s complaining about the robot umpires ruining the baseball that I used to love when I was a young man. “We used to watch these things called animated GIFs,” I’d begin via hologram chat with my future grandchildren who are too busy to teleport to come see me...

This is the Giants' most important road trip of the year

The San Francisco Giants did what they had to do at home; win. They won five out of six games against the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. This homestand was important for a number of reasons, but the biggest reason is their coming road trip to St. Louis and Pittsburgh.
