Giants Strengthen Team in Time for Next Season

Since 2010, the San Francisco Giants have re-emerged as a downright dynasty in the National League. The team has won three World Series titles in the last six years and is now doing everything it can to shore up its chances of winning a ninth franchise title in the coming year. It’s been pointed out that the team went ahead and gave Madison Bumgarner all the money to ensure that...

Big-spending Giants have baseball’s best bargain in Madison Bumgarner

Giants send Royals staff pizza after World Series victory

The Giants, behind the brilliance of Madison Bumgarner, defeated the Royals in last year’s World Series to capture their eighth World Series. This year, the Royals were able to come out on top, taking care of the Mets in five games. WWE star Triple H sent the Royals a custom championship belt. Last season’s champs...Read More

Joe West’s Legend Of Idiocy Grows In Madison Bumgarner Staredown (Video)

Joe West is at it again. The longtime Major League Baseball umpire has the reputation across baseball for being, well, a jerk. His antics have been documented over and over and over again, so it really shouldn’t come as a surprise when he acts like a dink. While it’s not surprising, we figure we’d let you know that Thursday night, he was acting like a dink. This time around...

Madison Bumgarner and Joe West got into a staredown, and Joe West broke

Joe West is a terrible, attention ***** of an umpire. During Thursday night’s Giants-Padres game, Bumgarner walked Jedd Gyorko in the sixth inning. A frustrated Bumgarner yelled at himself, and home plate umpire West took exception (because that’s what he does). The two then began a staredown, which resulted in something you rarely see. Joe West broke. The staredown lasted 17...

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...

Madison Bumgarner has once again put Giants on his back

August is just about in the books, and the Giants managed to survive a brutal schedule and keep themselves within striking distance of a playoff spot. And while we’re supposed to believe baseball is a team game, they basically have one person to thank for keeping them in contention: Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner had one of the best months any pitcher could have in August. He...

WATCH: Madison Bumgarner crushes his fifth HR of the season

Somebody forgot to tell Madison Bumgarner that pitchers don’t know how to hit. The San Francisco Giants star pitcher took another ball deep on Friday night in the second inning at PNC Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates—his fifth home run of the 2015 season. Here’s a video of his two-run blast, which nearly reached the second deck. Here are some impressive stats that highlight...

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...

Madison Bumgarner heating up at the right time

Last October, San Francisco Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner went on an insane roll to absolutely dominate the postseason. During the playoffs he went 4-1 with a save, a 1.03 ERA, 0.65 WHIP, two shutouts and 45 strikeouts in 52.2 innings while leading the Giants to a World Series title. Don’t look now, but it appears he’s heating up again. On Tuesday night Bumgarner was absolutely...
