Yesterday, the Mets faced a left-handed starter for just the third time this year. They have faced Adam Conley, Brandon Finnegan, and Madison Bumgarner. In addition, the Mets have faced lefty relievers here and there. Seemingly, the Mets have struggled against lefties. On April 13th, Conley limited the Mets to four hits while allowing no earned runs and striking out nine over...

The pitching manages to string together enough outs to allow the dynamic offense to get a lead. Madison Bumgarner holds onto it just long enough for the Giants to secure a win and snap the Mets' 8-game winning streak. Oh right. Madison Bumgarner is still on the team. Given the back of the rotation woes and bullpen malarky, it's easy to forget that the Giants have qualified major...

San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner is accustomed to facing an opponent's No. 1 pitcher. The New York Mets' starting staff is so talented that any of three hurlers -- Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard -- might fit the description of an ace. As it turns out, Syndergaard will challenge the Giants and Bumgarner in Sunday's series finale at Citi Field.

This is quickly becoming an interesting subplot to the entire San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers rivalry. On Saturday in San Francisco, Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw gave up a homer to Giants ace Madison Bumgarner: To no one’s real surprise, Kershaw didn’t seem too happy with the whole thing. Warning, don’t read Kershaw’s lips unless you want your mouth washed...
Madison Bumgarner’s cross-country trek from North Carolina to Scottsdale, Ariz., for spring training is supposed to take about 30 hours.
