Johnny Cueto’s changeup problems

Johnny Cueto‘s changeup is currently flatter than it’s been in five years. Literally. To some extent, everything in his arsenal is flat right now, but it’s most radical when you look at the changeup. With that wiggle in his delivery and a possibly falling arm slot, it’s easy to find a culprit. But he’s wiggled forever, why has he lost his drop now? Take a look. If you...

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.

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.

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...

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...
